Welcome to Denver! Colorado’s capital may be full of trendy bars and up-and-coming restaurants, but this city’s got a whole heap of history too. This walking tour will introduce you to Denver’s hotspots and places of historical significance. After you meet your guide at the Colorado Veterans Monument, your experience will begin at the Colorado State Capitol, constructed in the late 19th century and reminiscent of the United States Capital. Here you’ll meet your local guide and learn about the foundation of the city. From here, stroll on down to the Lower Downtown neighbourhood, known as LoDo. Here you’ll get a look at a more modern sign of Denver, full of lively bars and trendy restaurants. Take a walk along the 16th Street Mall, a mile-long pedestrian promenade designed by famed architect I.M. Pei. The street is brimming with exciting shops, eateries and entertainment venues. You may also take a wander around the tree-lined Larimer Square, another spot popular with locals. Take a detour off the streets and duck into a the late 19th-century Brown Palace Hotel, one of the first atrium-style hotels ever built and famous for its unique architecture. Take some time to admire this beautiful building and learn about its history. The last stop on our tour is Union Station, the heart of Denver. Recently refurbished to its former glory, Union Station offers dining, shopping, and ample opportunities for people-watching. While its early days were spent bringing settlers to the West, the station now operates as Denver’s main train station. As your tour ends, you'll be in a prime location to further explore downtown Denver.
