Colorado State Capitol Building

200 East Colfax Avenue, Denver, CO 80203-1701
4.5
20 reviews

Stand exactly 5,280 feet above sea level (one mile high!) on the west steps of the Colorado State Capitol, then climb to the rotunda for a panorama of snowcapped peaks. It is against state law to block the view of the 200 named mountains visible from the dome. Free tours are available on weekdays.

    Lovely place to sit down and relax after a day of exploring Denver. There are many levels, but I only went up to the 2nd floor. There are plenty of tables scattered throughout the library. I saw tons of people reading or studying here. The conveyor belt system they use for returning books is really cool and I just stood ...

    Very good museum of western history. It's been a bit politicised in recent years, but I guess that's only natural.

    If you're into beer, this is a high end bar serving up dozens (and dozens) of Belgian beers on tap. Check out the specials--the last time I was here, they had an amazing sour beer that I'm still thinking about. Prices are high--7 to 10 bucks a drink--but the quality is definitely there. Eats are offered too but I've never ...

    Neat little bar in an interesting part of town... they have a great happy hour special and, as is always high on my list of important-things-a-bar-can-have, ample seating. Love the little touches, like the bill coming as a bookmark in some torn up edition of a spectacularly hipster book.

    Colorado has been at the vanguard of the marijuana controversy for some time now but when the voters of the Centennial State voted to legalize weed, the argument ratcheted up a few decibels. The 2013 annual 4/20 smoke-a-thon in Civic Center Park drew over 80,000 people, the majority of whom lighted up in unison at the eponymous hour. There was ...

    I'm an art lover and I've been to some of the world's greatest art museums, so maybe my standards are a bit too high but I have to say that I've never experienced anything quite like the Denver Art Museum. It's just, well, STRANGE. The collection is okay and the special exhibits from local artists was fine, but the layout ...

    The Performing Arts Complex is where many classical concerts, ballets, operas and plays are held. It reminds me somewhat of the Galleria in Milan with its barrel vaulted glass ceiling. The balconies have excellent views of downtown and the mountains.

    I first saw it in "Colorado Girls," a mocking cover of the Katy Perry song published on YouTube. The other day walking over by the convention center I encountered the beast in its natural environs and I said, "Yup, that's a Blue Bear."

    Not only is the beer world class, but you get four free samples just for walking through the door. (Big samples too, not just thimblefuls.) After that, pints are $3-5, including some specialty brews not available in stores. Service is great and the ambiance in the small tap room is always friendly and cool, with a mix of locals and ...
