    Head to elegant Larimer Square for shops, people-watching, and dinner. Larimer Square is the city’s oldest and most historic part of town where the first gold prospectors from the Old West era staked their claim.

    There’s a relaxed vibe and it’s the perfect part of town to chill into your weekend in Denver. You’ll find hip coffee bars, urban boutiques and exclusive stores, and maybe some street performers. For dinner, take your pick from a great range of chef-led restaurants or one of the many different cuisines available.

    Great idea but in need of a refreshment.
    The free bus up and down the avenue is good. As well as all the cafes, pubs and restaurants and stores.
    On the other hand we can see the bad seed and crisis, the homeless, drug addiction problem of Denver, and few police.
    Not unsafe, but not what it once was

    I’d say the best and most interesting part of Denver particularly if you like street art. Loads of casual eateries, bars and craft brewing.
    Particularly like Central Market.

    This tower is right in the 16th street mall. It’s pretty tall and looks like something that you would see in Europe. It’s a cool structure.

    My flight was delayed a couple of hours so I had time to kill and wandered around the different terminals in DIA.

    This statue was located as soon as I disembarked at the Terminal B tram station. People were rushing all around me that I felt a little out of place stopping in front of the statue.

    The statue depicts John Swigert Jr dressed in a pretty realistic looking space suit. On the backside was a plaque that highlighted it was a replica of the actual one displayed in the US Capitol. It also detailed his education, multiple applications to NASA and the infamous Apollo XIII mission where he and his fellow astronauts successfully piloted their damaged spacecraft back to earth. They were all heroes.

    The building was closed on a Saturday afternoon; I'd guess it's only open on weekdays. The inside has been at least partly taken over by a telecommunications company, but the lobby looks interesting from the glass doors outside. And the outside of the building is great. Here are a few photos.

    Came for college visit. The food in the cafeteria was excellent. Campus kept up beautifully and super clean everywhere. Every student or faculty member was very helpful. Some parking lots a little small but it is a smaller college. Be sure to checkout the chapel.

    Every year in late September the Denver Architecture Foundation puts together over 50 buildings to tour over a two day weekend. There are also "insider tours" for a fee but these were sold out for the locations we were interested in. We visited three mansions built in the late 1800's, including the Governor's Residence at the Boettcher Mansion. We also visited the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception on 1535 Logan St. The inside is even more spectacular than the outside. After touring we joined the Octoberfest fun on Larimer Street. A long but fun day!

    Drove by looking for another attraction, and it's just like people said; it's just a shopping plaza. Nothing much there unless you want to shop. It's not bad, just nothing exciting.

    This little part of Denver was so cute. Old, historic homes that take a little of time to explore. Each house has the their own unique history that explains who owned the house and other little tidbits.

    So I searched for this attraction expecting actual tools and such on a wall. However, be prepared to be looking for murals. Lots and lots of murals on buildings and in alleys. Very very beautiful art. Lots of walking, sometimes with no shade. But definitely a must see.

    The park has been improved, and features a few unique design features, including a fitness zone, water front area, and the bike path travels around the park.

    However they did remove the original cabin structure that stood there for years...
    maybe they thought it didn't fit the new part, but it was an important part of history.

    There are a lot of interesting individuals located in the cemetery, including former soldiers and baseball players. The cemetery is in a deteriorating state but still worth checking out.

    I came across this unique and out-of-the-way landmark on a recent trip to Denver. Picturing what the area must have looked like all those years ago, I was reminded of the Edgar Alan Poe cottage in The Bronx. Both are historical homes of a famous writer and both were first occupied when the areas were very rural and bucolic. Unfortunately Eugene Field's House was under some construction which doesn't allow inside visits. It's still a special place with a unique sculpture to go along with it. I hope to visit again.

    This gallery always surprises! Carol Ann Waugh is both an artist and gallery owner interested in highlighting contemporary fiber art along with other non-traditional work. She is a master of mentoring with a wonderful eye for the most fascinating art that often probes, questions and delights. This gallery is a must see spot if you are heading to this RHINO (River North) district for First Friday festivities. It is located within a few blocks of other nice galleries and some great new restaurants, brew pubs and other hot spots so you can enjoy the adventure with a full evening! We have always loved beginning our art-evening here, then wandering around the area after getting off to a great start.
