“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
Denver's laid-back answer to Rodeo Drive, Cherry Creek is an upscale area for living, shopping, and dining in its own business district apart from downtown. To the north are gastropubs, tapas bars, and other adventurous restaurants backed by entrepreneurs like Denver Broncos star turned restauranteur John Elway. Cherry Creek is also known for spas, especially Vitahl for medical spa treatments, and Antoine du Chez for cosmetic treatments. The Cherry Creek mall in the southern part of the neighborhood offers a mix of midrange and high-priced shopping. For a more casual vibe, join the local crowd at Cherry Cricket, a vintage burger joint with one of the oldest bars in town.
