The Metamorphosis of Denver

Posted: Nov. 23rd, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Denver has been transforming its self over the past few years into a bustling metropolis with skyscrapers piercing the sky to match the splendor of the great Rockies that stand in the back ground. Now it hosts the 5th busiest airport in the United States, 300 downtown restaurants, a new light rail system, and many other things.

There's major league baseball, football, hockey, and basketball downtown. Great shopping/dining areas such as Larrimer Square, with an incredible Western-wear shop called Rockmount Western Wear, and funky restaurants such as TAG, housed in Old West buildings but serving New West (and New Far-East, and New American) cuisine. And the resurrected LODO (Lower Downtown) district is home to nearly a hundred very cool restaurants and "watering holes."

Just outside of town is the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, a 10,000-seat amphitheatre dwarfed by the red sandstone formations around it. At night, it's one of the world's grandest entertainment venues. In the daytime, you'll be amazed to see hundreds of locals using its 70 rows of seats as a giant outdoor gym.
