I’m from Denver. Here are 10 things tourists should know before visiting the Mile High City.
I’ve lived in Denver most of my life. Tourists overdo it by over-imbibing and ignoring the altitude. Denver isn’t a monoculture for craft beer or marijuana tourism and it doesn’t snow all the time.

Apples Abound in Cedaredge
Beneath the largest flat-topped mountain in the world is a valley where hot summers, short winters, warm days and cool nights create crunchy fruit with the perfect combination of sweet and tart. Water from Grand Mesa’s alpine lakes stretches down Surface Creek and into the town of Cedaredge, creating the perfect conditions for growing crisp Colorado apples.

RiNo: Where art touches everything
Change is a constant in RiNo, which is short for River North. The other constant is art.
Little league dreamers play like big leaguers
Driving on West Alameda Avenue in Lakewood, Colorado, might elicit a double take. Is that...? It can't be! But it is: A miniature carbon copy of Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies baseball team.
The magic of Meow Wolf
It’s obvious this will be different from a standard museum experience from the moment visitors arrive. Someone clad in a spacesuit calls out through an amplified headset, “Welcome to Convergence Station. Have you traveled with QDOT before?” QDOT, we learn, is the Quantum Department of Transportation, the agency tasked with guiding “travelers” through this strange spot...
Broadcasting from Boulder to the world
A guitar twangs out a bluesy chord progression before drums and piano kick in, creating a jazzier medley. Then, Helen Forster’s soothing voice says, “From the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, it’s eTown with this week’s guests…” before dropping the names of two musical acts. This scene has unfolded nearly a thousand times on eTown, a music-meets-talk show recorded before a live audience in downtown Boulder and then broadcast weekly on 300 radio stations worldwide.
The Brown Palace
POP! The telltale sound of a champagne bottle uncorking reverberates in the hotel’s eight-story atrium lobby. People young and old — the tattooed, the golf-shirted and three blondes clad in yoga pants and perfect makeup — cross paths heading for elevators, restaurants and a large revolving door leading out into downtown Denver. Ladies in big hats sip tea, while an immaculately-dressed Cuban man in a Panama hat checks in for a stay celebrating his 55th birthday. This is a day in the life of the Brown Palace Hotel & Spa, where similar scenes have played out since the hotel opened in 1892.
Let’s be frank: These Colorado hot dogs are worth relishing
Though debate continues as to whether or not a hot dog is a sandwich, one thing remains clear: The right combination of casing, cooking and toppings make for a tasty treat. A good hot dog should release a burst of juices and zest when you bite into it, an important and distinct firmness-to-flavor equation.
NEON: Denver’s Gordon Sign lights the night
The happy chef, who first flipped his hotcakes in 1955, beckons diners to Denver’s Colfax Avenue 24 hours a day — a neon sign with the added oomph of animation. This beauty, and many others, was made by Gordon Sign, the oldest continuously operating sign company in America.
Dolan Geiman brings out the beast in his art
The question isn’t what it is about Colorado that inspires Dolan Geiman, it’s what doesn’t? “If you stick around, the night birds come out and trill and rustle in the little canyons below the hills, sending their songs like sharp little lullabies gliding up the hillsides,” he said. Most of his resulting artworks draw not from a specific memory, but instead by adding elements of many observations together, “like ingredients in a stew.”
Denver’s 16th street ‘doors to nowhere’
Perched above Denver’s 16th Street Mall are two mysterious doors. The doors lead nowhere; opening them would mean tumbling down thirty feet to the road below. Yet these obscure doors used to be the main commercial entrance to each building. How is that possible?
