10 Amazing Things People In Denver Just Can’t Live Without
Those of us who live in Denver can’t help but become attached to certain things. Whether it’s the unbeatable scenery, the delicious food, or the locally crafted drinks, here in the Mile High City we’ve definitely got our favorites that we can’t imagine living without. Check out the list below of 10 awesome local things that make life in Denver complete.
1. That Rocky Mountain High
Now, I know what you all are thinking, and it's true. We are known for having legalized access to a marijuana induced "high," but what I'm referring to is that adrenaline rush achieved by hiking your way to the top of a mountain. Bonus points if it's a 14'er.
2. The Broncos
We bleed blue and orange here in Denver and sometimes our lives revolve around game time and rooting on our beloved Broncos.
3. Our Compass
We'd literally be lost without the majestic Rocky Mountains to the west which not only provide spectacular views, but also keep us going in the right direction.
4. Craft Beer
There seems to be a craft brewery on every corner and we can't imagine sipping on a watered-down lesser version of our favorite beverage.
5. Bike Paths
We've got to get around town somehow, and riding on two wheels is our preferred method. Thank goodness Denver is known for having wonderful bike paths winding around the city in abundance.
6. A four-legged friend
Is it just me, or does it seem like almost everyone in Denver has a dog? Whether they're running alongside their owner, riding in a stroller, or catching a Frisbee at a park, dogs are truly a man's best friend here in the MIle High City.
7. A sunshine-filled day
Being spoiled with about 300 days of sunshine per year here in the Denver makes us all feel a bit jipped on a cloudy day.
8. Green Chile
If this picture makes your mouth water, you're probably from Denver and can't imagine certain foods not being smothered in Colorado-style green chile.
9. Dining With a View
Sure, we like to eat out at the many fine dining establishments in our city. But wherever we dine, there'd better be a breath taking view...and it needs to include both the skyline and Rocky Mountains.
10. A Gorgeous Park Within Walking Distance
We'd better not have to travel far to exercise, play, or picnic at a spectacular park setting. Here in Denver, parks are everywhere you turn, and we've gotten used to that.
