We used the service car2go instead of renting a car and it worked out so well.
We were lucky enough to have family to stay with in Denver while we were there. The apartment was perfect, right in the center of the city and gave us great access to everything - restaurants, bars, parks, museums, and there was usually a car2go within a few blocks of us.
We stayed quite busy while we were there. Highlights included:
Denver Botanical Gardens Chihuly exhibit:
City Park and the Museum of Natural History:
Ran into Dave Simmonett from Trampled By Turtles who was playing the bar across the street with his band Dead Man Winter (and then a sold out Red Rocks show the next night!!). Spotted him, said hi, shook his hand, said we were also from MN and have enjoyed their shows at First Ave, pretty cool experience.
|this was my attempt at taking a picture of the theater...|
A great lunch with Phyllis.
We found the most amazing breakfast spot - Snooze. Go there now.
And Jack Johnson at RED ROCKS!
Denver was a great town to spend a long weekend in - tons to do and easy to get around.
