What can you really say about the city of Denver? Clean air, blue skies, parks in every corner of the city. Denver is all about life and where you can go in yours. The people are friendly and everyone just seems to understand one another. One of the first cities in the United States to fully decriminalize marijuana, Denver is at the forefront of progressive thinking. Beginning 1 January 2014 Denver will be the center of attention when recreational pot sales will start in the city, allowing anyone 21 and older to legally purchase up to one ounce of marijuana for recreational use. In addition to the progressive thinking taking place in Denver, the city also hosts some of the greatest speakers, musical talent, performance artists and comedians. Art is treasured and can be found in every corner of the city.

In the 20+ years we've lived in CO, Denver has really evolved. There are so many fun things to do in the downtown area: ride a rickshaw to the Denver Performing Arts Center; tour the Denver Mint; spend a day at Elitch Gardens or visit the Botanic Gardens. All great options!

The American southwest is breathtaking--and there's so much to see between Denver and Palm Springs! I'll post specific reviews of some of the places I recommend but figured having a list of sites, in the order in which you could visit them would be helpful:
1) Aspen, CO
2) Moab, UT (Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, plus Horseshoe Canyon)
3) Mesa Verde National Park (Cortez, CO)
4) Monument Valley (Olijato-Monument Valley,UT)
5) Antelope Canyon/Corkscrew Canyon (Page, AZ)
6) Grand Canyon National Park
7) Sedona, AZ
8) Phoenix, AZ
9) Palm Springs, CA

Maybe I'm biased since I was born and raised here, but I believe Denver to truly be one of those "I could live here forever" kind of places. For one thing, its burgeoning art and music scene (combined with three university campuses and its proximity to world-class ski country) has drawn a number of young people from across the country, lending the city an infectious youthful energy. Yes, weather gets rough during the winter months; but Denver boasts an average of 300 days of sun (even when temperatures fall below zero). Residents tend to have a joie-de-vivre about them that comes from having the ability to pursue their own entrepreneurial projects (Colorado's economy has done well through the recession) and leading healthy lifestyles. Many Denverites flock to the mountains over the weekends to enjoy a spectrum of outdoor sports: from rock climbing to hiking, skiing to mountain biking, caving to gold panning. Beware ye who are "just passing through:" you may never leave!

A friend from New York once told me that Denver can't even qualify as a city, but as a long time Colorado dweller, it was always the biggest city I had! Denver offers a huge cultural scene, from off Broadway shows to modern art museums, coupled with incredible access to outdoor adventures and gourmet eats. Denver prices are usually a lot lower than elsewhere, though you're best off renting a car (public transit is still lacking!) Be sure to check out the Santa Fe District first Friday art walk if you're in town or visit some of the hippest bars on Broadway for a regular Denver experience!

Denver ranks high on my list of places to visit in 2013 because it is both bike and pedestrian friendly. Here you can visit the National Center for Atmospheric Research to learn more about climate change or the National Renewable Energy Lab (in Golden, Colorado) to learn more about clean energy. The Mile-High city truly has something for everyone from tours of the U.S. Mint to the Denver Zoo and the Coors Brewery.
