“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
Once a nearly abandoned area on the wrong side of the tracks from downtown, Lower Downtown is now a hub of the most appealing destinations in the city. Coors Field is the landmark stadium where the Colorado Rockies play, and adjacent Blake Street is packed with busy sports bars and restaurants. Colorado is the nation's largest beer-producing state, and locals recommend microbrews and tours at Great Divide, pool and ale at Wynkoop, and barbecue and award-winning Oscar Blues beer at Breckenridge Brewery. LoDo also contains the historic Oxford Hotel and upscale shopping and dining around Larimer Square.
