best of both worlds

Denver is a beautiful place, with blue skies, lush landscape, panoramic mountain views, and hip establishments. Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains in close proximity to downtown, Mile High provides a gateway to a slew of outdoor pursuits all year long for the entire family. From a vibrant food scene to bountiful parks, real estate, and sporting events, Denver is top of the charts in our books. That’s why every year we see an influx of people moving here, with Colorado’s population expected to reach 5.8 million by 2021. Denver was also voted the No. 1 vacation spot for 2020 by TripstoDiscover.com—and Forbes.com listed Vail in their recent “Top 25 Places to Visit.” In this Best of Denver issue, we put on our reporter hats and got the inside scoop…

Céad míle fáilte Frank McLoughlin of the Irish Snug preps for the big day all year long. St. Patrick’s Day is a huge draw. “We really strive to provide a family friendly environment that has something for everyone. Face painting and balloons for the littles and great music, food, and drinks for the bigs.” The Snug opened its doors in 2004 and McLoughlin, who co-owns the pub with his brother Jim, says he’s proud his pub is a mainstay in Capitol Hill. “We have great regulars, some who have been with us the whole time. It’s such an eclectic neighborhood that has supported us since the beginning.

If you know anything about live stage performances, you’ve probably heard of Cirque du Soleil. Cirque du Soleil (which means “Circus of the Sun” or “Sun Circus” in French) originated in a small town near Quebec City in Canada in the early ‘80s. Today, the iconic entertainment business employs 4,000 people—including 1,300 artists from 50 countries—and generates annual revenue of approximately $1 billion. The next big thing to hit the thrilling Cirque roster is VOLTA, which stops in Denver April 30-June 7.

I just moved to the foothills of Colorado from New York City, where I’d lived all my life. Everyone here seems so outdoorsy and adventurous, something that I’m not used to. I think my co-workers are a little tired of hearing me say, “I’m a city girl,” when everyone is sharing Monday morning tales of weekends on the trails and slopes. What’s the best way for me to get into the many outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer, without feeling like a total klutz? —Jordan, Golden First of all, Jordan, have no shame in being a city girl. Just a few miles east of you is a big city full of culture, nightlife, and traffic. Please go to Denver whenever you are feeling nostalgic for the bright lights. If you’re…
