Eating like a local:
Regional food specialties
- Den-Mex and More in the Mile High City
With travel limited to roadtripping this summer we decided to go out to Colorado for a week. My wife had never been and it had been years since I was last out there. We figured with what it has to offer (lots of outdoor stuff) there wasn't a better time to visit. We drove out and did the 15 hour drive straight through. It's a pretty boring one but that also translates to easy. Omaha is about the halfway point if you're not up to driving straight through. We spent a few nights in Denver that were split into two different stays as we arrived around nighttime and didn't want to continue on into the mountains so we stayed in Denver a couple nights to start and then finished there for a few nights with a trip to the mountains in between. Denver is one of these hip cities that's seen major growth the last decade and now it kind of feels like the rest of them. The Austin's, Nashville's, Asheville's etc. It's not the same as it was when I last visited granted that was in the 90's. So of course it's changed since then.
