Denver 2020 from A to Z: attractions, restaurants, entertainment, Shopping


Well, where else in the States mayor may own one of the country's most popular microbreweries? Of course, only in Denver. Of course, John Hickenlooper did not begin his career in politics, but precisely in creating an excellent foamy drink, which is so popular in the capital of Colorado. In addition to the amber draft, Denver is famous for its status of “a city at the height of a mile”, and this is true - it is the only settlement of such a scale in the USA located strictly at an altitude of 1609 m above sea level. Well, perhaps, one cannot help but recall one more “trick” of the Colorado capital, without which the image of the city would be incomplete - this is its special, original cuisine. Try, for example, Rocky Mountain Oysters, but keep in mind that this is nothing like fried bull testicles.

Of course, the “lion's share” of tourists is striving for the former mining town, founded during the Colorado Gold Rush in 1858, not so much with the aim of exploring sights that are quite worthy, by the way, but for the sake of the fantastic ski resorts around. Snow Mass, Aspen, Breckenridge, Vale and a dozen more names that sound better for every skier than any music in the world.

Attractions in Denver


Capitol Hill


The “heart” of Denver is the never-sleeping Capitol Hill district, along which the city’s main arteries - Broadway, Downing Street, Colfax Avenue and Sixt Avenue. LoDo adjoins this quarter (the lower central part of the Colorado capital, which is called Lower Downtown, reduced by residents to the digestible version of "LoDo"). It is bounded by Larimer Square and Union Station, which is popular in the evening and is famous for its many historic buildings, as well as the most popular restaurants, nightclubs and, of course, attractions in Denver.


The most important attraction of the city is the Colorado State Capitol of the late 19th century, a massive building made of white granite, crowned with a 55-meter golden dome. Address: 200 E Colfax Ave; offer free organized tours, but it’s much more important to take a photo on the background of the “One Mile Above Sea Level” sign. Then you should direct your stops to LoDo and just enjoy a walk through the old quarter, running along the road to a museum. For example, in the Molly Brown House Museum (Molly Brown House Museum, address: 1340 Pennsylvania St, the cost of visiting is 5-8 USD). The unsinkable Lady Molly Brown, one of the few surviving Titanic passengers, lived in the 1880s in a large Denver mansion. Today you can see here not only the original furniture of that period, but also a lot of charming old trinkets during the 45-minute tour.


Another pathos mansion worth visiting is the Governor’s Residence at Boettcher Mansion, address: 400 E. 8th Ave, admission is free. Noteworthy is the history of the mansion, full of the noble names of the aristocratic inhabitants of Colorado, as well as the interiors of the building. Every Tuesday from June to August, as well as one week in December, free guided tours are provided at the residence.


Brown Palace Hotel

Finally, you can complete your acquaintance with the strengths of the Denver world at the Brown Palace Hotel (321, 17th Street, excursion every Wednesday and Saturday at 15:00, cost 10 USD, guests are free). This legendary triangular-shaped hotel, built in 1892 in the very center of the city, hosted Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower and even the battered Beatles. All of them left their autographs in the guest book of the hotel. Afternoon tea awaits at the end of the excursion - a long tradition of Brown Palace, which is not forgotten for a single day. Anyone can join.

Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg of the sights of charming Denver, because the magnificent museum collections of the Colorado capital, presented, for example, in the Art or Science Museums, deserve special mention. And the Denver Zoo is the 4th most popular in the United States, and that means a lot! And the amazingly picturesque Botanical Garden, and the museum with the grave of the great Buffalo Bill, and the Eldorado Canyon, and, of course, the Rocky Mountain National Park - the "pearl" of not only the state, but the whole country, which is just 1.5 hours away drive from the city.
