I’m a Denver resident through and through, but this travel guide topic is a little outside my wheelhouse. This is why I’ve invited my friend, Denver connoisseur, and real-life Millennial bring you her Ultimate Denver Travel Guide For Millenials!
See or do absolutely anything at Red Rock Parks and/or AmphitheatreAside from the best open-air acoustics that you’ve ever heard in your life, Red Rock is absolutely gorgeous and worth every second it takes to get out there (about 30 minutes). Drop in for a yoga class in the summer months or catch a show anytime. Take a few snaps from the amphitheatre stands and make your followers jealous!
Take a hikeColoradans are well known for being outdoorsy, but that’s because the undisturbed nature and views are so dang gorgeous. For an easy, 1.6 mile hike along a fishing stream, visit Bear Creek Trail at Lair o’ The Bear. Plus, Colorado proudly boasts over 100,000 miles of rivers and lakes, so if you’re looking for a waterfall to again, make your followers jealous, your best bet is Rocky Mountain State Park. Here you’ll find such gems as Horseshoe Falls and Lake of Glass!
Do beer stuffIf beer and shopping local is your thing, then Denver is definitely your place! Tour and sample some beers at mega-breweries like Coors Brewing or the Blue Moon Brewery and still drink local because both are based in Denver. If something a little more craft is calling your name, visit the Great Divide Brewing Co for a huge of selection of boutique beers.
Unleash your inner kidGet a little silly at this adventure park on summer afternoons. Elicth Park is right in the heart of the city along the South Platte River. Between the river and the massive mountain ranges, there are some of the best rollercoaster views around. If the rides aren’t tantalizing enough, honestly, go to make some fun memories with old-school photo booths and cotton candy! Remember to check before you plan a trip as Elitch is open March through early November.
Make the most of some of the best ski resorts on a budgetHate to tell you, but the best bet is to do a little of your own research and find something perfect within your budget. I’d recommend that you start your hunt by checking out Eldora Mountain Resort and Cooper.
Bask in the glory of the best ‘splurge’ ski resortTelluride may not sound like heaven on Earth, but they are. They really are. Transport yourself to the perfect marriage of American opulence with old-world European kitchyness and architecture. If you haven’t visited the Swiss Alps, Telluride is the next best thing…with better skiing! Plus, have you been to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival yet? GO!
Take goofy art photosNo! I promise that it won’t make you a tourist to take some great selfies or expertly-posed photography with the MANY public art installations around Denver. I mean…the giant blue stallion at the airport? For this, I have no explanation. Everything else is primed for one of the most bizarre and eye-catching photoshoots you’ve ever had. Thank. You. Denver!
