    Tour some breweries. There are so many good breweries within an hour of Denver all along the Front Range.

    Get up into the mountains and do some a hiking. I'd recommend a 14er, but there's still going to be some snow that high in June.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Denver Trip.. Ideas

    Was just there over New Years for a wedding. Great place, great beer!

    We did a tour of Sports Authority Field (Broncos) and I would suggest that to anyone! Really a cool building with a lot of thought put into it.

    We stayed along the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall, neat area for a day or so, then it gets old.

    Rent a car and get out of town, we really enjoyed Red Rocks, Coors Brewery, and driving through the Rockies.


    I love me some Jethros BBQ!

    Vesta Dipping Grill was one of the best restaurants I have ever been to.

    Re: Denver Trip.. Ideas

    Go to Boulder. Some great people watching and great restaurants. Plus, it is built just like Iowa City (minus the mountains) so you will love it.

    There are breweries in Boulder, Longmont, Fort Collins and about every other town up and down the front range. If you would like to go to the ones that are lesser known, let me know and I can point you in that direction.

    Estes Park is a nice drive and very pretty and close enough to Denver.

    Check the comedy club to see if anyone decent will be there. One of the best in the country.

    Roof-top bars in LoDo are a good time. Scenery is amazing, and I mean that in more than one way.

    ditto to the other posts.

    16th st mall. spend an afternoon there. shopping, etc. Have lunch at the Brown Palace Hotel near there.

    Microbrews/bars right there downtown near Coors Field, near the Train Station

    Rent a car for a couple days--Estes Park (drive further into Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park), Boulder, Red Rocks.

    Golf? Find a course with a mtn view. Thin air makes you feel like a big hitter

    Great place to see a game. Also previously mentioned Rocky Mountain national park and also going up Pikes Peak are both pretty neat. A bunch of elk are in Rocky Mountain park and Pikes Peak is about as high as you can drive in the country if not the highest.

    Hit up a show at Red Rocks if you can, one of the best venues in the country.

    If you like this, I have a few suggestions. Bear Dance or Arrowhead. 2 AWESOME courses just south of Denver. Here is the 10th tee at Arrowhead:

    Watched the 05 Iowa ISU game in LoDo.. Cant remember the name of the bar, (Sports Column or Something like that) but the owners have a bar in Iowa City too.. Needless to Say the group I was with was really out numbered.. but awsome bloody mary bar and that day was wrapped around seeing DMB on a 3 night stand at Red Rocks... God that was a great trip!!

    Yup, Sports Column is an Iowa/ASU bar. Always packed with both sets of fans. Great place to watch a game.

    Check out what is playing at Red Rocks......usually a good time. As a backup......check out what is playing at Fiddler's Green.....the other amphitheater out in Englewood. It's called something else now......some corporate name.

    I'm sure you enjoyed it. It's called Menver for a reason.

    I have never, ever, heard it called Menver. Ever. And I've lived in Colorado for 7 years.
