On September 6th we officially opened our doors in Denver, CO! With so much to see and do around the city, it’s hard to decide where to start. Here’s what we have at the top of our list.
1. Catch a Show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Red Rocks is more than a beautiful concert venue; it’s the only naturally occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheatre in the world. Opened in 1941, musicians from across the world have flocked to play in this most unique setting. The Amphitheatre is part of Red Rocks Park, an 868-acre park located where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains.
2. Enjoy the Local Brews
Denver’s beer culture goes all the way back to its saloon days, and has only gotten better with time. With microbreweries, brewpubs, and beer cafes across the city, Denver now brews more beer in a day than any other city in the country. While there are plenty of options, we’re looking forward to checking out two of the largest in the country: the Wynkoop Brewing Company and the Rock Bottom Brewery.
3. Get Outside
The Denver area is filled with hiking, biking, and skiing opportunities with breathtaking views. This fall, we’re looking forward to checking out the changing aspens from a variety of trails. At the top of our list are Elk Falls Overlook at Staunton State Park, the Raccoon Loop at Golden Gate Canyon, and Sprague Lake Loop in Rocky Mountain National Park.
4. Go to a Game at Coors Field
With 8 professional sports teams, Denver offers sports fans year-round entertainment. We’ll be sure to show our support for them all, but we’re most looking forward to attending a Rockies game at Coors Field. With seats at exactly one mile above sea level and the altitude and wind carrying the ball farther, Coors Field offers a unique experience.
