Denver has a lot to offer, and for this trip we limited our time to the more residential Tennyson neighborhood, which is to the north and west of the downtown area. There aren’t many hotels out this way, or other tourists, but there’s still a lot to see and do (and eat!) and it will give you an idea of why people say Denver is such a great place to live. We spent a couple days here before starting on a road trip to explore more of the surrounding state. With another day, we would've made some time to take a bus downtown, but we enjoyed feeling like locals for the brief time we were there.
