I'm going to claim this as the best Japanese Restaurant I've ever visited... and I've traveled the world extensively including five trips to Japan. If you like Asian food, this is not to be missed.

It's been just over 2 years since Hop Alley made an appearance in Denver with its unique asian-american fusion menu, and since then its racked up a host of awards and accolades. You may be hard pressed to get a table, but by showing up right after they open you can usually find seating for smaller parties. You will not be disappointed.

Once a hidden gem, now longer quite so hidden, but still a highly recommended spot. Very reasonably-priced crepes, both sweet and savory, are great for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. Their coffee, served in oversized saucers, is better than coffee that you'll get in most speciality coffee shops.

New to Denver in early 2019, this place has something for everyone... from sushi to empanadas to pizza to Indian to ramen to pasta to fried chicken. Fast/casual food and vibe, but also a place you can hang for a few hours and with decor and a vibe that encourages you to stick around. There's also a beer wall with lots of great options too (though check pricing before filling up on some of the pricier beers to avoid sticker shock!).

My new favorite brunch/cafe spot in all of Denver! Excellent menu for breakfast, brunch, snacks, and coffees. Very bohemian vibe with a menu to match- lots of organic and fresh options, "avocado toast" worth the $8 price tag, acai bowls, and really good breakfast burritos. Highly recommended, and just a short walk from the apartment.

Parks & Nature
Just a short walk away, you'll enjoy checking out the historic mansions that line the streets on your way there. Cheesman is very safe, even for early morning and late evening strolls. Do a quick Google search about the history of the Park before you go- some very interesting stories on how Cheesman started off as one of Denver's largest cemeteries and legend has it that many of the earliest inhabitants never left...

The Denver Botanic Gardens are worth a visit regardless of the time of the year you're passing through town! If you have the time to walk, go directly East from the apartment, through Cheesman Park onto 9th Avenue and take it until you reach York Street- you'll walk past a number of beautiful historic mansions on your way there. Otherwise its a very short drive. If you're lucky enough to be in town during one of the Summer concerts, pick up tickets on Craigslist if you can- well worth the experience!

Great short hike- lots of bang for the buck with an easy 30-45 min walk that ends at a gorgeous glacial lake. Amazing views. If you're going to do one day trip (or half day, in this case) into the foothills or mountains this is well worth your while. Trails are often snow-covered until late Spring, so be prepared.

Just over a block away, this long-time staple of Cap Hill has just been completely renovated from the ground up- while I must admit that the renovation took away some of this watering hole's character, its now a lot more open, clean, and the rooftop patio is the only one in the area!

You'll want to check out The Source while in Denver- home to several grade-A restaurants and the RiNo Yacht Club bar in the center of it all. The best bartenders in Denver (personal friends of mine, I should add!) serve up some of the stiffest and most creative drinks in the city.

One of the most iconic concert venues in the world, and for a very good reason. If you're able to catch a show when you're in town you won't be disappointed by this incredible place... and even if you don't have the opportunity to catch a show, there are some great hiking trails in and around the immediate vicinity of Red Rocks (just park in the lot at the top of the venue!), and really, walking through the venue and down onto the stage (open during the day time, at least when concerts are not scheduled) is worth the 20-minute drive alone!

Located in the heart of City Park, the Denver Zoo is home to hundreds of animals across its 80-acre facility. Started with the donation of an orphaned American black bear back in 1896 it became the first zoo in the United States to use naturalistic zoo enclosures rather than cages with bars.
