One of the most attractive places here is Downtown Denver, and here you would find lots of rooftop bars, brewpubs, restaurants, galleries and museums. One of the intriguing things about Denver is that it is about 3 to 4 hours of flight from anywhere in the country. This wonderful city has a nice farmers market and a bike sharing program that makes it more popular each day. This is why you need a guide through the best spots in the city, and the other hot spots that you might not know anything about. Lucky for you, we have put together some interesting places that you can visit while enjoying your stay at Denver.

  1. THE RED ROCKS CONCERTS: one of the landmarks in Denver is the Red Rocks Amphitheatre that is made with natural rocks and is 10 miles away on the west of the city. This theatre is quite active all year round as hosts of singers and musicians perform in the open air as they are surrounded by the large crowds in the acoustic venue that is called Red Rocks Amphitheatre. This theatre can contain up to 9,000 guests if you are worried about getting a nice place to sit. One of the first places that this theatre was utilized was in the 1900s and many great singers have done well to grace this venue with their wonderful performances.
  1. SNOOZE: this is one of the best morning eateries for having brunch. Those that love casual Sunday eating would love this spot due to their breakfast choices and all.

  1. LARIMER SQUARE: we have been talking about stuffing your mouth with the best delicacies that Denver has to offer. Now it is time to talk about getting into the city.

Before we move on, it is important that we talk a bit about the ESTA application. A lot of international travellers think that the ESTA system is stressful, and it is sad that most of them don’t really know what it is all about. Well, all we can say for now is that applying for ESTA doesn’t take more than 5 minutes. People submit ESTA forms immediately after filling it to ensure further processing can continue. Once you are clear about the ESTA form and the duration it takes to fill it, we can move on to the other places in Denver we want you to see when you get here.
