Hi Susan! I'm actually from Durham, NC and just moved here 2 years ago. There's so much to do! I would definitely check out microbrewery tours (like the Great Divide) found throughout Denver. The Stranahan's Whiskey tour is great too! Just to round it off, we have a few distilleries here to check out, like Mile High Spirits on Larimer St. There's Jazz Nights in City Park (also where our awesome zoo is located-didn't know I could love a zoo that much). We have movie nights at Red Rocks (which is an absolutely breathtaking place to take in a concert too). You can rent bikes here like crazy, and it's a super bikeable city- just don't be a sidewalk biker :-) It may seem cheesy but we loved the Colorado History Museum which isn't usually my thing. You should check calendars to see if there's going to be any festivals, etc while you are here- Denver loves to party! If you are here on a Thursday or Friday you should check out Civic Center Eats, an awesome local food truck round up and a pretty view of the city. Also, you should stroll through the south broadway shops of various kinds and check out the punch bowl social and my favorite ice cream in the world Sweet Action Ice Cream. We are also awesome at coffee- check out one of our best in Crema on Larimer st or Happy Coffee off S. Broadway. Oh! And stroll through the shops at Larimer Square (downtown). It's so beautiful at night, has delicious restaurants and such cute, yet expensive, boutiques. Also, get a margarita at Rio Grande close by. So YUMMY! And finally, I'll leave you with the more relaxed option of exploring the tattered cover bookstore, one of the largest independent book stores in the US, and it's really amazing...I'm not even a book nerd but I have never enjoyed a book as much as I have in their many nooks. I know this is ridiculously long, but please know you are welcome to reach out to me at email@example.com. My husband and I moved here for a church plant and have fallen in love with this city (and added to it's population a cute little boy).
