Denver at Christmas Time

It was this time last year that I took a short trip out to Denver, CO for a work event. Luckily, Joe was able to join me for the trip since it was a few days before Christmas. Denver at Christmas time was a blast!!

The view of the snow capped mountains was breathtaking and the city was all decorated in lights. We loved exploring the city in more depth and were sad to leave. 

Here were the top three highlights:

16th Street Pedestrian Mall

Very trendy strip that we enjoyed walking each night. It is lined with shops, restaurants and clubs. There were numerous horse drawn carriages that were all done up with bells and holly for the Christmas season. We loved window shopping in between dinner or drinks and listening to the outdoor piano players.

Dinner at Willie G's Seafood and Steakhouse

We loved the steak bruschetta! Both of us had delicious drinks and entrees. The restaurant atmosphere was warm and fun with their red lighting and interesting decor. It was a great place to grab some dinner before heading to our next destination.

Broncos NFL game

Denver has a number of sporting facilities but this one is cool. From inside the suite, we could see the football game and the mountains. The main seating bowl is outdoors and besides the mountains, everything else you can see is blue and orange. The view made the game that much more interesting.
