We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
1.) Breakfast burritos from Santiago's...
The best part of waking up isn't the generic coffee in your cup; it's the world's most delicious breakfast burrito in your hand, which can only be found at one of Denver's 20 Santiago locations.
2.) ...or brunch from Snooze
Whether you opt for the Ham Benedict III, Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes, or Peter Paul Ruben, you are guaranteed to start your day off on the right foot at this beloved Denver hot spot!
3.) Ride or run around Washington Park
Don't own a bike and/or don't like to run? No worries; this popular Denver park also features stellar playground equipment, fragrant (and stroll-worthy) gardens, pedal boats, concessions, and more.
4.) Attend a Rockies game
Nothing says summertime in the city quite like spending the evening at beautiful Coors Field cheering on our beloved Colorado Rockies! (Bonus: The Rockies are actually killing it this season, making them even more fun to watch!)
5.) Hide out at Tattered Cover
Ready for a relaxing afternoon inside an air-conditioned building? Grab a cup of coffee and a good book, and pull up a soft and cushy leather chair at what is easily the coziest little book store in the entire city.
6.) Green chile from Sam's No. 3
There is really no caption needed for this bad boy! (Bad boy = the burrito... this baby looks way too adorable and cuddly to be bad.)
7.) Beers at My Brother's Bar
We aren't sure how they do it, but craft brews somehow taste EVEN better at My Brother's Bar, which is not only one of Denver's favorite dives, but also the oldest bar in the city!
8.) Take in a concert at Red Rocks
...because nothing says Denver quite like listening to your favorite band or watching your favorite movie whilst nestled between million-year-old slabs of rock! (To maximize your Denver experience that much more, plan to see Big Head Todd and the Monsters at Red Rocks.)
9.) Walk around Larimer Street after dark
Pair this beautiful sight with all of the shopping and dining that this area has to offer and you are in for a truly unforgettable evening!
10.) Ice cream from Little Man
Denver may be one of
America's Top 20 Healthiest Cities
, but not even we can turn down a scoop (or 5) from Little Man Ice Cream! (Pictured are coconut almond fudge and banana pudding... omg!)
11.) Finally, hit up a dispensary
...if you are into that sort of thing, of course.
