As some of you might know, Mike and I spent last week in Denver. I was there to attend a conference, and he tagged along because when you work from home, it doesn't matter if you're in a home office or a hotel room - haha. We had a chance to do a bunch of exploring, and while I am by no means a Denver expert, I came up with five adventures that we really enjoyed and that I highly recommend to anyone looking to travel to the Centennial State!Arrowhead Golf Club. The course itself was well-maintained, and the staff was so friendly. Now if you're really not into golf, Denver also has an awesome Top Golf location, and that's worth a trip, too!
Denver Botanic Gardens or Dinosaur Ridge.
D Bar. They specialize in amazing desserts, but their dinner fare was also wonderful. We went with just appetizers so that we had plenty of room for dessert!
Sports Authority Field at Mile High and went to a Rockies game at Coors Field. Both were awesome experiences, and we even watched the Rockies's 1000th franchise home win!
see the complete guide here), but we only had time for one. We chose to take the 20 minute drive over to Golden, Colorado to see the biggest one: Coors. We went for the whole adventure: parked in the Coors parking lot, took the bus ride around the town of Golden, did the full self-guided audio tour of the brewery' and finished in the fresh beer tasting room where we were each given three 8-ounce samples of Coors beers. Don't worry, if you're not a Coors Banquet or Coors Light fan, they also have Blue Moon, Colorado Native, George Killian's, as well as seasonal beers to try. Did I mention that all of this (including the beer) was free?
Garden of the Gods, The Manitou Incline (just looked at it this time, but add that one to the bucket list, too!), and toured the Olympic Training Center.
