Digging Denver

A Downtown Reborn

Thanks to the development of lower downtown (LoDo) and the Cherry Creek Shopping District, Denver has shaken off its dusty cow-town reputation. LoDo boasts Coors Field, one of the country’s first retro ballparks; the chic restaurant-rich Larimer and Writer Squares; and the Tattered Cover, a beloved independent bookstore. Also, tour the Capitol and the U.S. Mint and set aside a few hours to take in the Denver Art Museum’s strong nineteenth- and twentieth-century collections, which include works by Monet, Picasso, Matisse, O’Keeffe, Modigliani and Warhol. They’re housed in the new Daniel Libeskind-designed Frederic C. Hamilton Building—the most creative use of titanium since the thin-faced driver.
