Denver Downtown for Anyone
Collected by Frederick Simeon
Call her the Mile High City, or City of the Plains, Denver is a city with a high altitude and a low-key attitude. Locals here care about the spirit of the Rocky Mountains, and carry that vibe into the city through recreation, art, music, and food.

With several Colorado locations, this local-to-Colorado shop definitely gives you the feeling of being in the Wild West. Filled with one-of-a-kind furs, hats, gloves and other accessories, there are also options for faux fur. Overland Sheepskin Co...

Located on Larimer Street, this restaurant is a little confusing to find because there is a street level restaurant named Tag and about 100 feet away is the Tag Raw Bar. It is downstairs and not as obvious, but keep an eye out for the sign. It is...

Have you ever tried a Graham Cracker porter? Well, you should. It's surprisingly mild— despite its dark hue—with hints of vanilla and mulled spices. And it's only available at the Denver Beer Co. The brewery serves along with other delish...

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...

Chef Alex Seidel is more than a chef, he is the farmer of most of the fresh food being served. On his 10-acre farm, he tends to herbs, fruits, vegetables, flowers, pigs and bees. With the addition of sheep in 2010, he created Colorado's first...

Euclid Hall in LoDo serves not just a wide range of handcrafted beer, but truly creative food such as Pad Thai pig ears and bruléed marrow bones. The most delicious dish I've eaten here (thus far!) is the Chips and Dip: lemon goat cheese,...

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...

It’s easy to miss, but hard to ignore. As you stroll the 16th Street Mall, head toward Curtis Street and go west down the north sidewalk of the 1500 block. As you walk you’ll hear sounds from below that just do not belong—farm...

Sometimes I love to have long lunches “for one.” Either in the company of my laptop, a good book, or simply my thoughts. I pick a place with good food, uncrowded seating, and I plop myself down for an hour or two. Le Grand Bistro is one of my...

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....
