Best Local Food in Denver, Colorado:
Linger is one of my favorite places to eat downtown. It offers an eclectic menu of dishes inspired by every corner of the globe (broken out by region, so you can take your taste buds on a culinary tour). And the atmosphere is… unique, to say the least. Linger is housed in the old O’Linger Mortuary, so water is brought out in formaldehyde bottles and there are coffin ads in the bathroom. It’s even rumored to be haunted!
Don’t Drink the Water in Denver, Drink a Craft Beer!
Colorado is home to some of the best breweries in the country, so you’re sure to find something to please your palate. Craft brews such as Breckenridge Brewery, Great Divide, Crooked Stave and Dry Dock (just to name a few) are among my favorites. Not sure which one to choose? Then have a taste at the Great American Beer Festival, known as the world’s largest beer event. Cheers!
Best Local Designer, Shoes or Fashion Shop in Denver:
I’m a sucker for great interior design. One of my local favorites is Atelier for its mix of different textures, colors, and patterns. Their spaces are charmingly familiar while being altogether unexpected. Every room they create is #decoratinggoals.
Best Thing to Do in Denver:
You can’t visit Denver without a trip to the mountains! I recommend heading up to Breckenridge for its variety of shops, eateries and relaxing mountain vibes. It’s an easy hour and a half drive from Denver (and the scenery on the way up can’t be beat!)
Estes Park is another cute mountain town just a short hour away. It has an adorable main street lined with shops and restaurants, as well as the Stanley Hotel (which was the inspiration behind Stephen King’s The Shining, as well as where movies like Dumb & Dumber were filmed.)…”
