    And if you want to go out for Ice cream after food go to little mans Ice cream in the Highlands. Pretty close to the stadium.

We had no difficulty making a go of it for 3 or 4 days, minus a car. We went on tours, all from our hotel. But I am sure there are a lot of advantages of having a vehicle as well, especially if you like driving in the mountains.

    Still have good memories of several meals at the downtown Cheesecake Factory!! (We don't have one here)

    The previous time I was there I had the best Mexican food ever, but I do not remember the restaurant name. Perhaps it was one of those mentioned above!

    And on both trips I found the people to be quite friendly, as did my wife! BONUS!!

    Enjoy!!
    I found the people to be friendly also. I only had one Bronco fan trying to talk smack to me and it was some zit faced teenager. Wasn't worth it when I saw his parents shush him LOL!

    We went to a Pre-Game Chargers party at Jacksons in Lo-Do. Also hit up TwinPeaks. Now there are TwinPeaks everywhere. I definitely want to hit up Jackson's again.


    Has anyone been here? Some of their stuff sounds good and hangover inducing!

    My wife and I have been to Denver three times now, visiting from Scotland. 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of our first ever trip to the USA. We loved it so much, we come over to the USA two or three times a year, every year, for 20 years now. We have visited...sometimes multiple times... NYC, Boston, LA, Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Phoenix/Scottsdale, Dallas, Austin, Fort Worth, Houston, New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville, Atlanta, Washington, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Savannah, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Orlando, Miami, and Key West...

    The friendliest people have been in Denver and Atlanta. We have been warmly received in many places, but Denver and Atlanta were outstanding. In Denver, a guy in Euchlid Hall bought us a drink just because he liked Scotland. Everywhere we went in Denver, people heard our accent and asked us about our homeland and were very amiable. Maybe it's because Denver, despite being a big enough city, still isn't as big and perhaps impersonal as, let's say, NYC or LA, where tourists are ten-a-penny and everyone is rushing around.

    Anyways... the last time we were in Denver was when we came over for the home game in the snow against New England, when we won in OT en-route to title No3 in SB50... what a night that was! Hugging strangers, mental scenes.

    Go Broncos!

    I moved to Denver from Atlanta with a 10-year stop in Chicago in between and concur with your friendliest people assessment. Having lived in several other cities those two are my favorites.

    There are a lot of Scots that live in Denver. My neighbors are from Glasgow and they have a lot of Scotish friends they get together with. 4-6 Boddingtons in, I cannot understand a thing they are saying! I do know many of the Scotish friends they have they met here and they did not know them in Scotland. My neighbor said Scots are a close community in Denver. I suspect they met through something to do with the Rangers. Maybe a website for the Rangers or something.
