Denver Lovin'

Machete Tequila + Tacos


Idaho Springs

Stem Ciders


Denver lovin' in December. About a month ago, I took a trip to Colorado. This was my first trip to Denver and, naturally, I was most excited for great food and great views. Mostly great views of great food. Every time I explore somewhere new, researching food is on the top of my list. Dreams of continuous eating without getting full or fat flood my mind, but one can only dream.

With only a few days to scratch the surface of what Denver had to offer, I was impressed not only by the amazing food, but the varying contributions each neighborhood had to offer. And then there was the street art, which, besides the food, was my favorite part. The River North Art District (RiNo) was crawling with art, some very apparent and some hidden and only able to be seen on foot. As well as art, RiNo houses endless breweries and we made sure to hit a few to taste the local offerings. 

While it may be cliche to visit Red Rocks Amphitheater, it is a must do. Go to see where so many of the greats have performed, but also get in a good workout. In all seriousness, I almost died climbing the stairs. We took the opportunity to journey a little further out and discovered Idaho Springs and Georgetown, small mountain towns not too far out of Denver. Live amongst the mountains and the city, such an ideal combination.
