denver, colorado // day one

denver, colorado

Way back in 2014 [I know, forever ago!] Kacey and I took a super quick trip to Denver, Colorado. How quick? We had a day and a half there, and it was our first time visiting. I want to share what we did, what we ate, and what all we saw in our day and a half in Denver!

We arrived late on a Friday night, hopped in our rental car, grabbed a quick bite to eat near our hotel and then went to sleep so we could wake rested on Saturday. That Saturday morning, we drove out to the Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre. I was surprised to see how much of a workout mecca it was. Lots of people climbing the stairs and doing workout routines on the benches. Definitely a beautiful place to exercise as the views from up top were spectacular!

Afterwards, we drove out to the Molly Brown House Museum, followed by lunch at Wynkoop Brewing Company. Their burgers were tasty!

After lunch, we drove to the Denver Convention Center where we spotted the famous Blue Bear.

Then, we took off to walk around Larimer Square where the Denver Chalk Art Festival was happening. I couldn’t believe how amazing the artwork was. And that it was all made of chalk! Serious talent.

We had cocktails at The Squeaky Bean and decided to hit up a Speakeasy for dinner. There was quite the wait at Williams & Graham so while waiting we checked out Little Man Ice Cream. The line was really long so we walked around until our reservations were ready.

Williams & Graham was such a unique place. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, so let’s just say it seemed like we were in the wrong place when we arrived! With a little trickery, we were seated in a cozy room for drinks and dinner. And while I can’t remember all that we ordered, I still think of the Roasted Bone Marrow that we had that night!! Oh so good + decadent! Kacey got to try a few rare scotches that were on his list. So, that was a highlight, too!
