Discover snowy peaks and LoDo treats
Virtual year-round sunshine, wide-open skies and powder-tipped peaks form an impressive frame for the mile-high city of Denver. Sitting in the highland heart of America’s Rocky Mountains, the city doesn’t just promise a gateway to adventure – with stellar skiing, cycling and hiking all within in easy reach – but serves a delicious menu of culture. From chef-own restaurants and indie breweries to a burgeoning arts scene, you’ll find it all served up within Denver’s playful urban vibe.
It may not be a surprise that Denver’s first building wasn’t a church or a house, but a saloon. The city that wears its badge as beer capital of the US, is also perhaps, one of the hippest.
Take RiNo (River North) where you’ll be tripping over – perhaps literally – its baffling collection of breweries offering anything from sours and stouts to ‘Beer Therapy’ at its Beer Spa. It’s also a sweet spot for art lovers and creative types. For a truly hipster hangout, head to the LoHi (Lower Highlands) for funky boutiques or a spot of lunch at Linger – once a mortuary, now, a restaurant. As the evening draws in, head for its buzzing centre (LoDo) where you’ll find Union Station’s chef-driven treats, bars and more.
