Denver, Colorado, is the kind of city that I can visit over and over again and still find new places to see and new adventures to discover.

This trip to Denver took me some great restaurants, a cool neighborhood and into the beautiful Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre. Here’s a little run down of my time in Denver.

The Train Station

I started my trip at Denver Union Station. This train station is way different from the ones I’m used to back home. For starters, it’s so clean! It also has many really great restaurants with world-class chefs creating incredible dishes. There are also coffee shops, bars and a boutique hotel. The icing on the cake is that you can get there directly by train from Denver International Airport. Denver Union Station is not just a place you go to catch a train – it’s a really cool meeting spot for anyone looking for great food, good drinks and friendly people.

Sunrise at Red Rocks

After a delicious beer at the Terminal Bar and some wonderfully fresh seafood at Stoic & Genuine, I ambled happily back to my hotel for a good night’s sleep. In the morning, I drove up to the Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, where the sun was just coming up over the mountains. The amphitheater is built naturally out of the rocks and has hosted some of the biggest names in entertainment. After a tour of the Visitor Center and Music Hall of Fame, I began a lovely hike on one of the many trails that run through Red Rocks Park. It was truly beautiful and incredibly peaceful, even though we were only about 20 minutes from bustling downtown Denver.
