10 Things Everyone In Denver Should Avoid At All Costs
Here in Denver, we definitely have a unique way of doing things. If you’re new to the city or just passing through, here’s a little guidebook that will let you know things you simply must avoid if you want to have a pleasant experience while in the Mile High City.
1. Driving to or from the mountains on I-70 during ski season.
If you do, you will quickly realize that you aren't the only one who decided that day would be a perfect day to hit the slopes.
2. Driving on I-25...anytime?
It doesn't seem to matter what time of day it is, I-25 is often more of a parking lot than a quick route to your destination.
3. The food at Casa Bonita
The Mexican fare at this popular destination isn't anything to write home about, but the cliff divers and other entertainment are worth the trip.
4. Being a Raiders fan
If you are a Raiders fan and you live in Bronco country, you'd better just keep that on the down-low or you might have trouble making friends.
5. Going to the grocery store before a snowstorm
Don't panic, folks. We all know the snow will melt in a day or two anyway. We will not starve!
6. Forgetting to apply sunscreen
We're known for having 300 days of sunshine here in the Mile High City, and if you forget to protect your skin you'll definitely pay the price.
7. Buying a house
The Real Estate Market can be quite depressing for home buyers in Denver.
8. Ordering a burrito without green chile
Here in Denver, ordering your food smothered in green chile is not only perfectly acceptable, it's expected.
9. Wearing flip flops in the snow
Sure, you'll see lots of people choosing to wear summertime footwear in the snow, but we wouldn't recommend it.
10. Planning to wear the same thing all day long
The weather here in Denver is ever-changing, even within the same day. It's important to dress in layers.
