Things to Do Outside Denver



If I'm going to be honest, this post should be called, 'Four Things to Do Outside Denver, Only Two of Which I Personally Experienced Due to Time Constraints'. Denver is a great travel hub for a road trip, especially with Rocky Mountain National Park close by. But if you're short on time, as I was, here are a few options closer to town.

Downtown Denver



The whole point of going to Denver for the weekend was to attend my dear friend Stacie's wedding, but since I'd never been there before, I decided to spend a little time getting to know the city. After a morning flight, I spent a leisurely afternoon shopping and dining on the 16th Street Mall. The following day, my friend Meaghan and I passed a couple of pleasant hours on a walk a few blocks south of our hotel. Here are a few spots I enjoyed in Downtown Denver.

A Stay at the Brown Palace

 

Flashback to October of 2009 - one of my BFFs was getting married in Denver, so I flew out for an extended weekend.  Our group of six had been pretty tight in high school and by some miracle, all of us were able to make it to the wedding.  My friend Meaghan rented a car, while I took care of accommodations for the two of us in Denver. And while Denver has lots of options, I knew exactly where I wanted to stay.
