The Mile High City!
The Mile High City has sure come a long way from the stage coach and saloon days. Today it is a completely modern city with eye candy around every corner. Seriously, I was surprised with how much there is to see and do. The city has a very similar feel to Seattle minus the ocean. We totally enjoyed driving through the historic home and park district. You definitely want to make it to the Denver Art Museum. It is worth the 13 dollars entrance fee. You really get a trip around the world when you go to this museum. My favorite collection was the Western American Art which is kind of surprising since I have never been a big cowboy fan. Unfortunately, I was only there for a weekend so I didn't have time to go the Molly Brown Museum, but I have it on my list for too see next time. One can sure work up an appetite in Denver and boy did we girls eat. My favorite was Little India. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was quaint. Don't forget to get desert at the Little Man Ice Cream Shop which is definitely not little in flavor. I loved the Mexican Chocolate and Salted Oreo. Yummy! My girlfriends and I also worked up an appetite shopping and enjoyed a good meal at the Old Church Restaurant in Castle Rock, Colorado built in 1888 just south of Denver. Since I am pregnant, I couldn't have the Brie and roasted garlic on flat bread with a blackberry jalapeno chutney. It sure looked good. They also specialized in trout and many other dishes. However, don't forget to make a reservation if you want to try this restaurant because the seating is limited. Thanks Buffi and Jennifer for such a fantastic weekend. Happy 40th Birthday Buffi! I can't wait for our next adventure!
