Red Rocks

by torinj

Does anyone no if you can get in when it's not open to do pictures? Or know of any great places in red rocks to do pictures?

Re: Red Rocks

by bocmaxima

Yes, there's a visitors' center. They close it a few hours before a show though, so it's sometimes difficult to get out there in the summer.

Travel Tips for Denver

What we like about Denver is...

by letsmakeadea

What we like about Denver is the weather! The winters are short and nice. The snow never stays for long. They say that the mountines are nice to ski on , haven't skied yet, just love being in the mountains. Since this is my home I will do it soon. I like the spring time and summer, things are so green!

The Auraria Campus - Ninth street Historic Park

by OlenaKyiv

When I was directed to Ninth Street first time, I was thinking of some modern street close to Colfax Ave, with traffic and city noise. However, Ninth Street is not of this kind, although it is close to Colfax Ave. Actually it is even hard to call a street, so small, quiet and nice it is. A narrow brick trail leads you along small Victorian cottages built between 1872 and 1906. Those buildings are the oldest restored block of residences in the city.

Although nobody lives in those cottages now, because they are used by student services, I still feel a spirit of former residents, so cozy those old houses look. The closeness of lawn (small park) adds more to that spirit.

The Molly Brown's House Museum

by OlenaKyiv


When Browns moved in the house they did some changes to it. One of them is front staircases that led straight to the door from the street. But Molly decided it looks too simple so she change it to a T-shaped staircase decorating with lions, sphinxes, and ornamented vases.

While family traveled, they rented the house.

After Molly's divorce she spent less time in the house and in Denver. She rented out the house, and during her rare stays in Denver, she lived in Brown Palace Hotel. In times of Depression she had to turn the house into a boarding house. There are stories that school's girls did some damage to house, like taking a part wood rails of staircases and throwing them outside

After Molly's death her children who inherited the house sold it for $5,000 (or 6,000 or 10,000 - many sources many prices). The furniture and other things were sold out. For years it was residence to many families, to gentlemen's boarding house.

At the end of 1960s Victorian houses were not popular and Browns house was ready to be demolished, but Historic Denver Inc was able to purchase it for $80,000 and begin restoration. A part of belongings from Browns house was bought out from different auctions, some returned by family's friends, or found in atnique stores.

Altitude!

by whirledpeas0621

Sandals are popular in the Denver area. Find a comfortable pair that have straps or something to attach to your foot. People here also wear a lot of khaki. Also, the temperature can wildly switch from day to day. We've been known to have a blizzard one day, and the next day reach over 60 degrees! Also, even in the summer, the temperature doesn't stay warm at all once the sun is down. So do yourself a favor and bring layers. Sunscreen and lotion! I grew up in the midwest, and we rarely used sunscreen and lotion. Here, you're so close to the sun, you need the sunscreen. Also, there's *very little* humidity here, which can be good because the heat doesn't feel as hot and the cold doesn't feel as cold. However, you skin can easily feel dry and itchy. In the summer months, everyone here wears sunglasses. That's not only a fashion trend; the sun and glare can be brutal.

Idaho Springs

by BruceDunning

Gold was discovered in 1859 and the mining continued in earnest through the first decade of 1900's. They still dig today, and Arco Gold Mine is in the middle of the town, but most of it is for tourism .
The town is only 1,900 people, and most all are in retail connection some how. Store fronts stretch for a good mile down the old highway, now Miner St. The summers bring many to relax and take in the surrounding mountains. Due to them having a backyard of mountains, the town cannot expand north or south where there also is US 70 blocking the growth. So they are spreading out west. The town has a lot of old time cabins and motels form the original tourism era back in 1950-60's. It looks interesting to stay there.
