People are always looking forward to their next vacation, and thinking about where they want to go and what they want to do. The one place that everyone seems to overlook, is right here, beautiful Denver, Colorado. There are so many “tourist” destinations that we as locals never seem to go and experience. Not too long ago, my wife and I took a Denver vacation. First place we went is the Denver Mint on East Colfax downtown. It’s fun to spend a few hours seeing how our money is made. Unfortunately, there are no free samples. Another place we went was a tour of the Coors Brewery in Golden. I’m not a beer drinker, but it’s fascinating to see all that goes into making Colorado’s most famous beer, and best of all, there are free samples at the end of the tour.
Spend the day at the Colorado Art Museum and you’ll only scratch the surface of all there is to see there. The Museum of Nature & Science in City Park is having an exciting new exhibit “A Day in Pompeii” that has hundreds of artifacts from the city that was destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 79 AD.
My last suggestion is a little “strange” but it is the #1 tourist attraction in the Denver area. No, it’s not Coors Field or the Capitol Building, it’s Casa Bonita restaurant in Lakewood on west Colfax. Where else can you see cliff diving, indoors no less, in all of America?
Best thing about this kind of vacation is that is really inexpensive. No plane flights, no hotels, no rental cars

"We worked with Karen Venier for a relatively short time for a good reason: our home sold at full price within hours of hitting the market! While it’s true that the Denver housing market is “hot,” credit for the speed and ease of our transaction belongs to Karen. She was great to work with, giving us perfect advice about readying our home for sale and then expertly guiding us from offer to close. Along the way, we came to appreciate Karen for her skillful blend of professionalism and personal touches – like dropping off our favorite beverages during a particularly stressful time in our move or shoveling our driveway in subzero temps after we’d left the state (way beyond the call of duty!). Now that we’ve relocated to Wisconsin, we keep saying that we wish Karen could be our buyer’s agent here. Since that’s not possible, we’ll shout her name loudly to whoever might be looking for a home in the Denver area.
Thanks for the great work, Karen!
