A mile high city with Wild West roots and the scenic background to support it, Denver is as cosmopolitan as it is adventurous. From Rockmount’s original Western apparel to Pearl Velo’s stylish bikes, it’s not difficult to adorn yourself with the best of the west. And as a growing foodie destination, Denver is host to the sprawling indoor urban farm Growhaus. Find comfort at local favorite The Cherry Cricket or go vegan at Root Down, either way the fare won’t disappoint. Regardless of your travel requirements, you’re sure to find it in Denver, from shopping to a hike. Our guide for the city—the latest feature from our newly launched Lexus City Guides—will help you be sure to not skip a beat.

Under the mountains, you’ll find art and culture everywhere. At the Plus Gallery, an arts hub in the Golden Triangle neighborhood, you’ll find the best in contemporary art. If music is more your jam, explore new and old at Twist & Shout, with the most aware music staff in the city. Explore beyond the city boundaries with a day trip to Boulder, only 45 minutes away and chock full of vistas. In true Gold Rush form, today, Denver is wrangling a vibrant scene for visitors as a new gateway to a culturally and creatively rich frontier.

Our recently launched City Guides—made possible by Lexus—aim to make cities more drivable and enjoyable for visitors and locals alike. Check out our guide to Denver for a fresh take on the sometimes looked-over but worthy destination.
