I’ve got a confession to make… I just had a week-long love affair.. with Denver!
If you’re like me and had never been to The Mile High City you might not understand it, but I’m honestly smitten with the place! I’ve had Denver on my list of places to visit for a while, I’ve heard how beautiful the mountains are, how clean the air is… but it just never made it to the top of the list, until now.
I spent the last week exploring the Denver area, as far south as Colorado Springs and north to Boulder, I got the chance to visit Evergreen and catch a glimpse of some fabulous vintage mountain charm on the way. If you are someone who lives (and loves) in the City Denver is the perfect mix of natural beauty & cosmopolitan life! The entire time I was driving I was astounded by the views of the Mountains! I didn’t realize that you basically have a million dollar view All the time!
The city also has plenty of delicious restaurants & talented mixologists, I was never thirsty in Denver. It’s one thing to enjoy the views from the city… but you really need to live them as well! I would recommend a trip to Red Rocks, like most people, but while you are out there be sure to stop at Dinosaur Ridge. The tour offered at Dinosaur Ridge is both informative and entertaining, PLUS you get to see tracks left by dinosaurs!
Another place I’d recommend is a bit farther out, but worth the drive time! There is a great little town nestled in the mountains named Evergreen. It’s located in the Bear Creek Canyon – you’ll find restaurants, shops, and plenty of sights to see!
I can’t wait to plan another trip to the 5280, hopefully with a little more time in the mountains!
Where are you planning to visit next?
