If I were to compile a list of the cities I enjoy visiting, Denver would be in the Top 5 (possibly a Top 10 list? Hmmmm …have to think about that…). Easily accessible, lots of places to eat downtown and a really cool football stadium (plus they have all 4 major pro sports), Denver has a lot to offer.
Denver’s downtown has a cool feel to it. You can walk several blocks and go shopping. They have a movie theatre close by. They have several nightclubs and places to hang out. My personal favorite is a place called “Mercury Cafe“, which boasts an organic foods menu and offers poetry readings and dancing and a piano in the corner of the restaurant, which is filled with multi-colored lights that adds to the ambiance of the place!

Unlike most times I’ve been to Denver, this past weekend it was a balmy 75 and sunny skies, so I could see the mountains surrounding the city. Oddly enough, I also like the airport here. It looks like a giant circus tent from a distance (the shape of it allows snow to roll off of the roof), and there is plenty to do there with lots of shops and restaurants. So there are much worse places to be stuck if there is ever a snowstorm!
Anyway, if you ever get a chance, visit Denver! It’s a really great city with lots to do. If you like skiing, I hear it’s got it, but I don’t ski…so I wouldn’t know. What I do know is they have a Virigin Megastore near my hotel…and THAT eats up about 4 hours of my stay right there! LOL
