I'm going to Denver for 1 week.

It's mostly to see band (BOTAR?) but I'll be spending time in 3 different Airbnbs around Boulder, Black Forest etc

Any tips? Second real trip to USA after my 2 weeks in Las Vegas, New York and Austin last year.

Will be renting out a car of course. Any places to eat, see or do beyond the obvious like Garden of the Gods?

Cheers channers.

    I live in Denver but I don’t do anything except work 60 hours a week, go down the street to Walmart for my weekly groceries, and then spend the weekend drinking, sleeping, smoking cigarettes on my balcony, and cooking myself cheeseburgers so I can’t help you

        Colorado is extremely white. Even more when you get out of the central city, complete opposite of Vegas and NY. It's also the least fat state in the country. CO is full of annoying hipsters and stoners though. Less so in Colorado Springs because its government/military there. The food also consistently sucks in this state because its cooked by white people who are high and mix weird shit together instead of knowing how to use seasoning.

        There's plenty of places to go if you have a car, the rockies are huge, just depends on how far you want to drive. Mt. Blue Sky you can drive to the top but they just closed the road for the winter. Golden is a nice little town. I think you might like it better than Boulder. Evergreen also, can go there for the day and do some hiking. Always wanted to go to Cheyenne Mountain take a tour of the complex they built for WW3 down in Colorado Springs. You can hike on the mountain over top it too. Remember how big this country is though. Just getting across Denver takes over an hour each way and another hour to get to hiking spots if they're pretty far up in the mountains. If you think you can do 4-5 places in 1 day you probably can't.

          Thank you. This is extremely helpful.
          I purposefully booked 3 airbnbs in different spots to be close to the hikes etc - already checked out the car journeys. Most are 1 hour tops.

          But yeah, being from UK this is a sobering fact, hah!

          Golden looks lovely; thank you.
          And I got the impression the food is a bit lacklustre..

            In Denver i recommend eating at Snooze, its a delicious gourmet pancake and breakfast place that I eat every time I come back. I also recommend Red Robin for a great burger restaurant that you'll be unfamiliar with being from outside the states. frick I miss Red Robin. I would recommend Casa Bonita too but that one's more situational and might not make the cut for your trip, I do have a nostalgia for it and want to revisit myself.

            For other stuff, Boulder is indeed awesome just a bit pricy is all. Pike's Peak is fricking fantastic so hugely recommend it, can hike it then take the train back down, so kino, just be aware its a big hike. Seven Falls is another great hike that is pretty easy relatively, its by Colo Springs.

            In Denver, 16th Street Mall may still be in construction and if so, its not worth seeing. I wouldn't weight Downtown Denver too highly as a place to spend a lot of your trip in general but I don't think you'd mentioned it.

            Garden of the Gods is awesome and so is Red Rocks. incredible beauty.

            I'm probably forgetting stuff but this is what I got. Definitely get some good hiking in. Colorado has a lot to offer and is just stunning in places.

              Oh, also Colorado has stellar hot springs that are super nice, see if there's any on your route.

              I probably got some locations jumbled because the vast bulk of my time in Colorado was before I drove or in college where I'd have carpooled to places, I don't have a real good idea of where shit is because I didnt navigate myself to them 95% of the time.

          This is extremely false. Denver has a good “foodie” scene. There’s so many different kinds of restaurants. That you end up choosing between several restaurants for very specific food categories (steak and cheese, Thai, ramen, tacos). It’s pretty impressive tbh

          Denver is a bit lifeless but I genuinely have to tip my hat to whoever the “city planners” are. They know what they’re doing. Everything is very functional.

      this is pretty much the reality of living in any place in the US. Life is what you make it, as corny as that sounds.

    I spent a week in Denver. I recommend using it as a just a home base for all the outdoors stuff nearby. The city is fairly unimpressive. First post sums it up so well lol. Sounds like you have the right idea though.
