This pint of American Stout at Fate Brewing Co., one of the newest craft brew pubs in Boulder, was delicious, strong, and smooth. There are legendary breweries up and down the front range, in and out of Denver, and plenty of people who plan their...
3980 Broadway, Boulder, CO 80304, USA
Or the best lunch, for that matter. I like to belly up to the counter early in the morning, when the rising sun blasts into the cozy eatery, and the servers rush to lower the blinds. I nod yes for coffee, then order from the hash bar (smoked pork...

Tucked into a canyon near the city of Boulder, the towering walls of Eldorado State Park were the site of some of the boldest ascents in Colorado’s climbing history, including pioneer Layton Kor’s climb of The Naked Edge. But even visitors with no...

The author does some research at the Southern Sun, a family-friendly brewpub in south Boulder; pictured above, Annapurna Amber and Quinn’s Golden Ale. The Southern Sun (627 S Broadway St, Boulder, 303-543-0886). The ample space, enormous...

I don't use the word "best" lightly, but Salvaggio's deserves it. For decades, they've been serving up the best classic sandwiches in Boulder at their three locations—a kiosk on Pearl St. in front of the courthouse, a shop at 26th and Pearl St....

One of the highlights of Denver is the Daniel Liebeskind-designed addition to the Denver Art Museum juxtaposed next to the Michael Graves-designed Denver Public Library. Circle the two properties if you have time—new vistas will reveal...

Did you know it’s rude to put soy sauce on food in Japan? They’ll teach you the finer ways of Japanese cooking at Domo, a hidden treasure in downtown Denver. And while the restaurant’s exterior looks like an industrial warehouse, the interior...
18300 W Alameda Pkwy, Morrison, CO 80465, USA
I absolutely love how in Colorado every single person has at least one dog, and a vast majority are rescue dogs--you have got to love CO! Grab a friendly pet and take a hike up by Red Rocks or a yoga class held in the amphitheater, now that is...
515 Ruxton Ave, Manitou Springs, CO 80829, USA
This three-and-a-half hour ride up the nation's highest and steepest cog railway, allows a 45-minute break on the summit to take pictures from 14,115 feet above sea level. It's quite an experience, with various levels of ticket prices and car...
Mesa Verde, CO, USA
1770 13th St, Boulder, CO 80302, USA
Boulder was my home for 17 years, and so it's tough for me to think of it as a tourist attraction. There are of course many wonderful things to see: the Flatirons, Chautauqua, and the Pearl Street Mall, which was just a run-down street when I was...
1634 18th St, Denver, CO 80202, USA
You've got two options: a drink at Wynkoop Brewing Company, or a wander through the Denver Modern Art Museum. I chose wrong. It took half a dozen pints of Cowtown Milk Stout to wash away the memory of that museum's dreadful third floor exhibition....
2115 Larimer St, Denver, CO 80205, USA
Head to Mexico City Restaurant and Lounge, a Denver staple since 1968, the next time you feel the craving for a delicious taco. It’s a great spot to hit before a Rockies Game. The menu’s loaded up with all kinds of Mexican fare, but skip the...
1439 S Pearl St, Denver, CO 80210, USA
Kaos Pizzeria is a fabulous way to enjoy a sunny, clear Denver day. They have delicious pizza, amazing salads with much of the ingredients grown in their garden and tasty Colorado beer. The pizzeria is situated in a small bungalow, which is...

For years, John’s Restaurant was one of the only fine-dining options in Boulder. After four decades, Chef John retired, and the famed century-old miner’s cabin on the east end of downtown Pearl Street is under new management as River and Woods....
2115 13th St, Boulder, CO 80302, USA
I hop down the familiar 13th Street entrance, dipping beneath the iconic Hotel Boulderado and into what used to be the Catacombs Bar. I used to play guitar at the open mic here 18 years ago. But on this evening, my feet pad over plush, dark,...
