    Sharing Highlights from Trip to Denver

    Thanks to all for sharing tips on visiting Denver on this forum!

    We made the trip for the Broncos vs. Texans and had a great time. Sharing a few of the highlights:

    Denver Broncos Training Center at Dove Valley. The lobby with the trophy case is amazing - what a treat to see the three Lombardi trophies. They give you free posters - we got posters of Pat Bowlen and Danny Trevathan/Brandon Marshall. There is a team store attached to the field house.

    Dinner at Bull & Bush in Cherry Creek. Casual dining and we enjoyed the prime rib.

    Black Hawk and Central City. Just a short drive west of Denver. I'm not a gambler and the casinos have taken over the landscape. Still enjoyed seeing these mining towns. The view from the hot tub deck of the Ameristar Casino Hotel is amazing - just ask someone from the hotel for access to the pool.

    Buffalo Bill Museum & Grave. The overlook from the parking lot is spectacular - great views of Golden and the Coors Brewery.

    Parking Lot M - this is a cash lot and fills up fast. If you do not have permit parking or advance purchase this is a nice lot. We got there before gates opened and the lot filled up in about 90 minutes.

    Since we traveled and weren't setup for tailgating we walked to Brooklyn's - only a few minutes walk from the Parking Lot M. They have outdoor seating and the weather was amazing. We spent a couple of hours there visiting with Broncos fans and sipping our favorite beverages.

    Old Chicago Pizza & Tap Room - close to our hotel and my buddy had a friend in the Hall of Foam so he wanted to check out his name plate.

    Union Station downtown was a nice starting point. Since the game was Monday we spent a good part of Sunday walking bar to bar watching football. Sports Column was a good spot with plenty of TVs and they have an outdoor deck upstairs.

    There's so much to do and never enough time!

    Enjoy your trip to Denver and the Broncos

    Glad you had a great time.

    I like it when people share their experiences. Makes me feel like I was there, too.
