Denver: Day 1: Arrival in Denver, and the Denver Botanical Gardens

We took a morning flight from the east coast and landed in Denver in the late afternoon.  We checked out our rental car from Alamo car rental (which was quick and painless) and drove towards Denver.  We grabbed coffee at Hot Chick a Latte coffee house, which was “interesting”.

We then drove straight to the Denver Botanical Gardens, which were rated as a top attraction in Denver.  I suppose if you really like gardens, and have a lot of time to spend in Denver, you can check it out.  I did not find it too impressive.

We then headed to our hotel for the stay, The Magnolia hotel.  The hotel was in a great location, and had a historic feel to it.  I would highly recommend staying there if you’re interested in being close to the restaurants and activity in downtown Denver.

Denver seems to have quite a number of micro-breweries, and we headed to the Wynkoop brewing company for dinner.  The place was popular, with tons of pool tables, and different orders of drinks.  We got some yummy vegetarian chilli and quesadillas.  We ended the night walking around Larimer square, which was a happening spot for night life with plenty of bars and clubs.
