We arrived on the Friday night, hit an Irish pub like in every city and got to bed readying for a walk around the next day. Staying in the downtown area is definitely the way to go if you have only a few days considering the airport is 35km out of the city and Denver is quite spread out it is nice to have a good centre. On Saturday we hit the streets and strolled down the 2 mile (3.2km) 16th Street pedestrian mall beginning at our hotel (Sheraton) and the Capital buildings. Shopping, bars, events and even ice skating skirt 16 st which also has a free bus running the length of it. Compared to Calgary I would say Denver is much more walking friendly and a really good spot to visit. They used common sense putting all the sports stadiums in the core as well. A perfect set up for the weekend sports fan enabling you to walk to a Baseball, Basket Ball, Football and Hockey game all from your downtown location. Get a clue Calgary!
|About -20C in Calgary, which means|
de-icer for the wings.

|The Denver Airport. A major Hub,|
