After our stay in Nathrop, we continued our mini-moon in Denver for a few days. I ended up getting pretty sick so we didn’t get to do as much as we had planned, but it was still an amazing time. When we arrived in Denver, our hotel wasn’t quite ready yet, so we headed to Wynkoop Brewing Co for a drink and some lunch. After eating one of the best bison burgers I’ve had in my entire life, we walked a few blocks down to check out the Coors Field which just so happened to be hosting a Rockies day game.
If we would of had more time, I would have loved to check out some more breweries including:
Once we checked in at the Hampton Inn (which was a perfect location for us!) we unpacked our things and set out to walk around the city for the afternoon. Cute shops, restaurants and bars lined the streets and I even found a Chicago Bears bar too!
We had plans to go to Red Rocks for a concert that night, so we grabbed an early dinner on the rooftop of the Ale House just down the road from our hotel. The weather was a perfect 80 degrees and views of the skyline were unbeatable. After about an hour or so we headed to the Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line concert.
Everyone told us we had to go see a concert at Red Rocks and we didn’t really get what all of the hype was about…until we got there. The views of the city, the open-air Amphitheater and the towering red sandstone rocks was something like I’ve never seen before, not to mention the acoustics!
Our second day in Denver was just as perfect as the first. We woke up early, grabbed some coffee and walked along the pedestrian path in the city for a while before heading back to the hotel and showering up for the day. Our first stop was Linger restaurant to grab some lunch. The menu was full of unique dishes including Mongolian BBQ Duck, Masala Dosa and Moroccan Lamb Kofta Kebabs–they even had cheese curds that tasted like they were fresh out of Wisconsin!
