Breakfast Spots

The perfect breakfast cafe. The menu includes dishes for vegetarians, the institution has a good reputation and is very famous in Denver. The menu includes a lot of dishes for every taste!

Molly Brown House Museum


Impressive location of the house, its picturesque surroundings. The museum itself is also very informative. If, before visiting this museum, you learn some information about Molly Brown herself - an extraordinary personality, philanthropist and one of the few surviving passengers of the Titanic - then you will be doubly interested in the excursion! If you want to buy something to remember, the museum has a nice souvenir shop.

Lucky Pie Pizza & Tap House

Pizza Places

This institution can attract attention of both beer lovers and lovers of delicious pizza cooked in a traditional oven! Well, we're gonna have to eat tight before we go. We chose pizza with homemade cheese, very tasty and nourishing.

Lair O' the Bear


Not everybody likes to move around for long periods of time, no matter how picturesque the area around. Therefore, it was decided to make a base approximately in the middle of the way to the top of the mountain to walk and stretch a little. After a short walk through the forest, you can fully enjoy the aroma of coniferous trees.

Mount Evans

A must-see place to visit! To get to the top of the mountain you can easily get there by car, and there is also parking. An unforgettable view that's breathtaking! Be sure to take a memory shot. Only consider that it is necessary to take impenetrable things, as the top of the mountain is located extremely high and there are powerful winds.

The Wood Cellar

American Restaurants

On the way back, we stopped for dinner at the restaurant that was near the road, and we were lucky three times! Firstly, the institution is working late, secondly, there is a great food, tacos are very tasty, and thirdly, on the day of our visit a local music band performed in the institution, so that our dinner turned into a mini-concert.

Grand Hyatt Denver

We returned to our hotel, the day was interesting and not very simple, we have come a long way today, but we have seen and learned a lot of new things.
