Denver, Colorado is an awesome place for a hip weekend getaway in the Western United States. With a lively and growing restaurant and arts scene that has exploded in the last few years, even people who have visited Denver before will find there are so many new things to see and do in the Mile High City.
If you are visiting for just a few days are looking to design the ultimate cool and off-the-beaten-track weekend itinerary with ideas from a Denver local – this is the guide for you! I’m a native New Yorker who moved to Denver in 2016 and started the New Denizen Instagram account. This constantly updated city travel plan will help foodies, design-lovers, and budding outdoor adventurers find the most fashionable, Instagram-worthy experiences to take in during their stay.
Denver is a premier vacation destination for 20- and 30-something travelers (it’s one of the cities with the fastest growing millennial population in America) across the world thanks to its amazing year-round weather (over 300 days of sunshine a year) and its ideal mix of an urban city experience that offers easy access to outdoor/adventure activities.
