With its changing seasons, clean mountain air, famed ski resorts and a huge number of outdoor adventures, Colorado is a fantastic year-round destination. At its heart is The Mile High City of Denver and its 300 days of sunshine, where the Old West meets the new. It’s not just about the beauty and splendor of the Rocky Mountains and nearby national parks — Denver is brimming with energy. It's a young, active city with world-class museums, entertainment, shopping, restaurants and a lively nightlife scene that makes visitors feel they can find something new around every corner.

Let's start by checking out the Denver brew pub scene. Beer lovers have long flocked to the city's many pubs and microbreweries. In fact, some 200 beers are brewed here every day — more than any other city. This is the Denver Beer Company, where you can bank on new beers every week and choose from ales flavored with pumpkin, graham crackers or even kaffir lime wheat.

Denver also offers a wide array of shopping options to suit all tastes and budgets. There are lots of places to browse for the Colorado western style of clothing, too. One favorite is Rockmount Ranch Wear. And at Larimer Square, you'll find distinctive local boutiques selling unique clothing, accessories, jewelry and home goods. Or head to Cherry Creek to find chic brands and more great outdoor shopping. If you're in the mood to shop till you drop, though, catch a pedicab. These three-wheeled spin-offs of the rickshaw are a popular and fun way to take a load off and get around downtown Denver. Or hop on a B-cycle at one of the city's 80 bike-sharing stations.

Looking to stay somewhere with a story? The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa on 17th Street has been open to guests every day for the last 120 years and counting. Its beauty and elegance make it a must-see, even if you stay elsewhere. If you do check in, you'll join a guest list that even includes the Beatles, who stayed here back in 1964 when they played the nearby Red Rocks Amphitheatre. And thanks to Denver's current and vibrant live music scene, there's no shortage of venues in which to discover new artists, too.

So, whether you're looking for excitement or relaxation in the Rockies, intrigued by the old or the new West, or simply out to enjoy the style and flavors of a unique American destination, take a closer look at Denver, Colorado.
