“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
The heart of this downtown district is the 16th Street mall, with free MallRide shuttle covering 1.25 miles of shopping, dining and entertainment seven days a week. Denver's famous Brown Palace hotel has hosted U.S. presidents and other dignitaries, and still serves formal afternoon tea in the lobby. Head to the Paramount Café for elk burgers and people-watching with the local crowd on the patio. Located on the 27th floor of the Hyatt Regency, Peaks Lounge serves fancy cocktails to toast sunsets behind the Rocky Mountains as the downtown lights come on.
