Colorado is one of our most scenic locations, but the city of Denver itself, well honestly, I found a tad boring. You want to get to the smaller towns in the Rocky Mountains west of Denver. Especially interesting would be the ski resorts like Aspen, Steamboat Springs, Telluride. In the metro Denver area, the city of Boulder is very nice (site of the University of Colorado). A rental car would be the best mode of transportation. South of Denver, Colorado Springs (near Pike's Peak) is worth a visit. Not too far south, in New Mexico, you could also visit the towns of Santa Fe and Taos - where you will be able to eat some of the very hottest Mexican food in the world!

I spent 8 months living in Denver back in 2000 and 2001, so I am pretty familiar with it.

Denver is famously known as the “Mile High City,” because it is, more or less, 5,280 feet above sea level. The first few weeks in Denver I was affected by the altitude – I would get winded walking up a single flight of stairs and I would get tipsy after only two or three drinks. That’s good for the budget though.

You didn't mention what time of year you are going. That would help us make suggestions.

In Denver, the area of Lodo (Lower Downtown). All the old factories and warehouses have been turned into art galleries and restaurants and bars. The 16th Street Mall is a pedestrian mall with a bunch of shops and restaurants along it. Assuming they are still open, for food, Marlowe’s is good, and the Paramount Café has a nice patio. A free shuttle runs the length of the Mall.

I will second the recommendation to go up to Boulder. It's about 30 - 40 minutes from downtown Denver, and is a nice place with a pedestrian mall. Louisville, which is along the way, is also a nice little town.

Of the mountain villages, I liked Breckenridge the best. It's about an 1 1/2 or 2 hours outside of Denver. Nice town, great for both skiing or summer sports, or just wandering around and checking things out.

It is really easiest to drive, so if you can rent a car, I would do that.

Thanks everybody for your great help and sharing nice information.

One of my friend had visit Denver about 3 month ago so we decided to tour to Denver in next holidays.
According to him views and my opinion after your cute information we will be try to go Denver and it’s near by Rocky Mountains area the best areas in US for the out-door life loving people to live. Denver is also called Mile-High city because it is one mile high above sea level. Denver weather is heavily influenced by the surrounding areas, especially the Rocky Mountains on the west.

Anyway, I hope we will be enjoy there and thanks again for great information about Denver.

Regards
Sherry

If you drive SW to the Four Corners area (where Colorado meets Arizona, Utah and New Mexico) you'll be in the heart of Navajo Indian territory. Taos also has very strong American Indian ties as well as being a major ski resort and art center. Many wealthy Americans (including celebrities) live in the Santa Fe area. (A very "in" place currently)

Hi. I wanted to share something helpful with you.

In cities like Denver, it isn't too difficult to find something to munch even at an odd hour between morning and noon. You'll definitely have no complaints with a -snip- Denver Brunch in any one of Denver's good restaurants.

Denver restaurants are many but Snooze, IHOP, Hot Cakes Diner, Café Star and Lucile’s Creole Café are among the few that offer a good brunch any day.

So any time if you're late for breakfast, go ahead and hop into one of these Denver restaurants and enjoy a good brunch.
