At Diamond PR, we know the importance of traveling, exploring, and most importantly, eating. So, this President’s Day, I packed up the three sweaters I own and headed to Denver: home of the Rockies, craft beer and pizza slices the size of your head.
As a first timer in Denver, I was eager to explore the city and meet up with friends, local Denver-ites as of 2016. Over the span of three days, I fell in love with Denver’s mountainous landscape, laid-back atmosphere, and friendly locals. Not to mention, the dogs. So many dogs!
Below are the three things you should absolutely do while in Denver, aside from drooling over the abundance of man buns.
1) Hike a mountain (or if you’re a Miami native, drive halfway up, then hike the rest). Whether you’re hiking Red Rocks or Lookout Mountain, get ready for a workout that puts the stairmaster to shame. Expect lots of Denver-ites and their four-legged friends to race past you on the trail, or the occasional mountain climber (oh yes, super casual). The best part? Reaching the top and basking in the snow-capped Rockies…and of course, snapping a few photos.
2) Immerse yourself in Denver’s cuisine. From Thai coconut curry to sushi burritos to breakfast tacos, Denver’s food scene is as diverse as its locals. Pro tip: put green chile on everything. Everything.
3) Drink beer…a lot of it. Just watch out for the elevation. Cue Jamie Foxx: “Blame it on the eh eh eh eh eh-levation.”
So, for your next vacation grab your LuluLemon’s (or Patagonia if you really want to fit in) and head over to Denver. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
