Hello again! I’m writing from the one…the only…Denver, Colorado! Flying into the Denver airport was a blast. The top of the airport is shaped like a circus tent! My first stop was the Denver Zoo. Lions, tigers, and bears…Oh my! It was a beautiful sunny day and monkeys were climbing the trees as birds soared throughout the sky. I quickly transitioned to the Denver Art Museum where I saw multiple paintings displaying impressionism, realism, and pointillism. Soon after I left the museum, I went to Mount Evans. Mount Evans is the tallest road in America and the view is gorgeous. The Rocky Mountains were snow capped and the tall cumulus clouds towered above. It looked as if it was a painting.
Then I decided to go to the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum. I managed to catch a few glimpses of the B-18A Bolo and multiple spacecraft-What a rush! I traveled downtown to the Denver Aquarium where I saw dozens of jellyfish, sharks, seahorses, crabs, octopuses, eels, and more! It’s always fun to lock eyes with sea creatures and interact on the other side of the tank. Children were running around the aquarium, excited to discover different types of sea life. After walking through museums all day, I wanted to have a more active experience. I decided to embrace my inner Lance Armstrong and bike up the Cherry Creek bike path. The bike path consists of 85 miles of paved pathways that overlook beautiful gardens and red rock formations. Although biking was exciting, Denver offers an opportunity to experience super high speeds with the Oxotic Supercar Driving Experience. I was able to zip around the open road with a Porsche 911 Turbo for twenty miles. Driving in a supercar was exhilarating and there’s no other word to describe it than shear freedom!
I was also able to attend a performance at the Colorado Ballet. Elegant dancers floated across the stage and music radiated throughout the theatre. They shared a magnificent interpretation of Swan Lake. It was truly tear jerking. One of the best parts of the ballet is getting dressed up to attend the event. After that night, I wanted to attend a less formal event so I decided to head over to the United States mint. The U.S. mint is a busy place, indeed! It’s fun to tour the facilities and gaze as thousands of coins are made that will distributed all around the world. I ended my adventure with the Denver Brews Cruise. The Denver Brews Cruise exposes you to hundreds of different types of beer within the heart of downtown Denver. There are about 100 craft breweries to choose from and it was definitely a great way to spend a night with friends!
Denver has so much to choose from. This city is unlike any other that I’ve visited. The mysterious flat landscape with mountains in the distance sparks a sense of adventure and exploration. It’s a city full of history and character.
The Mile High City is one of a kind. Until next time, Denver!
