Hey, we’re going to Denver, Co for our honeymoon (in the middle of November! I don’t even own a coat!) and I’ve never been.
Anybody here got any favorite Denver places? I’d love to get some insider advice 🙂

I’m a native to Colorado and live & work in Denver currently. Denver has a great night life with tons of places to check out. If you give me an idea as to what you like to do, I’ll try to give you suggestions.

Colorado is beautiful!! My fiance spent 12 years of his army career there. If you or your fi like beer, you could take the Coors Brewery tour in Golden. There are tons of really cool restaurants & clubs even piano bars. Be sure to check out LODO, (lower downtown Denver). There’s tons to do!! Check out http://www.denver.org for some good detailed info.

thanks ladies 🙂
jana, we’d like to see some cool bars & eat out at one (not too expensive) fancyish place, as well as a lot of neat local places. we’re staying at the teatro and would have caught a show but it’s going to be the diary of anne frank and thats just too sad.
we’re planning on checking out the mint b/c he loves that sort of thing and i love history. and the cruise bar (in the brown hotel?) b/c its got a lot of great history too.
so that’s what we’re hoping for. oh and melanie, my guy LOVES beer. he makes his own in fact 🙂 so we’re going to see the wyncoop & flying dog for sure. coors might be a neat tour too, thanks 🙂
anyhow as far as neat bars & restaurants go (and little insider tips!) we really are open to suggestions.

<font size=”2″ color=”#000080″>Here is some of the info on Denver:</font>
<font face=”verdana” size=”2″ color=”#000080″>Things to do: -16th Street Mall. An outdoor mall with lots of shops and restaurants in the heart of downtown.
-Red Rocks Park. Located minutes west of Denver, this is an amazing natural park full of red rock formations. A natural amplitheater is located here where many concerts are held each summer. -Coors Field, Pepsi Center, Invesco Feild. No matter what time of year you are in Denver, you are sure to be able to catch one of our many pro sports teams playing a home game.
-Botanical Gardens. This is a huge piece of land with paths leading through many different gardens. It’s beautiful! -</font>

I definitely second the 16th street mall… there are some great pubs there, many have their own brewery on-site. I like the pedestrian mall in Boulder too. In general, Boulder is a cool little town. I’m also partial to the Estes Park area since that’s where we got married.

Have you checked out Josephina’s? I think it’s about 14th and Larimer…..great food, and I’ve totally had so much fun there. There’s also a great sushi place pretty close to the Tattered Cover which I can’t remember the name to right now, but if it comes back to me I’ll post it.

I live just outside Denver and I’ll have to think of some places, but you might want to see if you can go to Red Rocks. Red Rocks is on the way to Golden where the Coors Brewery is (and I think the tour is free, but might be mistaken).
