Denver Happenings

Denver, CO, United States
9 Kudos
During a recent trip to Denver, we had just a little over a day before we had to head back down to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Even though our time was limited, we were still able to eat good food, drink good coffee, get a massage, and spend time at a beautiful park. Most of the places we went were near Cherry Creek, which is where our hotel was. Once our time ran out, we made the 5-hour drive back to Santa Fe, which wasn't too bad. We stopped in Pueblo on the way back to get gas, and it also helped to break up the driving a bit. If you find yourself in Santa Fe, don't forget how close you are to Colorado. It makes for a great weekend trip.

We used reward points to stay at the Courtyard in Cherry Creek. Really nice place with a good location.

Points of interest

City Park
After eating with our friend, we went to City Park. It's a great, really big park. Must-do in Denver.


ink! Coffee
We grabbed coffee at ink! coffee. It was good, and I was happy to go to a more local chain.
Anthony's Pizza & Pasta
We ended up grabbing lunch here with a friend after trying to go to Snooze.
Snooze an A.M. Eatery
We met up with a friend to grab a late breakfast, but the wait was so long at Snooze (1 hour 45 minutes) that we ended up going next door instead.

We had really tasty burgers here, and they had deep-fried mashed potato puppies. So good!
