Weekend Getaway: Denver, CO

September is almost over and we haven’t event gotten a chance to share how much we love this month!  Not only does it signify the beginning of fall (hello, pumpkin everything!), but it also means FOOTBALL!! Yes, us Life:Styled gals enjoy the sport too. A lot. What better way to celebrate than to plan a weekend getaway to go see an NFL game?  We’re showcasing Denver, Colorado and the Broncos, because, not only does this city have a great football team (We sure do love Peyton!), but it is also an all around great city to visit.  It is a city with impressive history, outdoor adventures, and localism that football fans and travel enthusiasts will both enjoy.

Eat:

Fish Plate

Lola’s Mexican Fish House – Baja Style Whole Fish Plate

Enjoy fresh Mexican seafood at Lola’s Mexican Fish House, which uses farm fresh ingredients for all its plates.  This restaurant offers a great atmosphere and makes killer margaritas (we would know!).  Their table-side constructed guacamole and halibut go great with a “Life:Styled approved” margarita.

Dining

1515 – Dining Area

1515 is a fine dining restaurant with a great view, due to its elevated perch in downtown. Other than the location, one of the things we love about this restaurant is that they offer seasonal menus in order to keep their ingredients fresh and local. You can choose to order individual dishes or indulge in a multi-course tasting menu.  We prefer the tasting menus because there is just so much yumminess, and we love to taste as many as we can in a short amount of time quite frankly!  

Play:

stadium-tours-new

Sports Authority Field at Mile High – Broncos game

Go see Peyton Manning and the rest of the Broncos play at their home stadium, Sports Authority Field at Mile High.  This stadium has recently been renovated and is truly fantastic.  Before the game, hit up Noble Energy Sports Legends Mall, which is just outside the South end of the stadium, and offers pre-game activities for all ages, while Mountain Village, located inside the stadium, offers the official pre-game tailgate party.  Either way you tailgate, you are bound to have a great time.  Check out the Broncos home games schedule here to find the perfect weekend to visit.

Cru Patio

Cru Food & Wine Bar – Outdoor Patio

Cru Food and Wine Bar is a great place to wind down after a long day.  Located in Larimer Square, it’s a great spot for people watching on their patio.  With such an impressive list of wines to select from, we are sure you won’t get bored here (we couldn’t).   You can choose to enjoy your wine by glass, bottle, or flight.

Relax:

Caribbean Room

Spa Universaire – Caribbean Room

Just a short walk away from the Ritz Carlton, Spa Universaire is a gem inside of the Hyatt Regency Convention Center.  Take time to relax and treat yourself to some well-deserved spa treatments, couples massages, or full/half day packages.  This spa offers 10 culturally themed treatment rooms for you to choose from, such as: the Taj Mahal room, the Aztec room, and the Caribbean room.  All rooms are equally amazing, the decision just lies on your mood.  Each room is specifically designed to heighten all senses with the theme in mind.  And since it is hard to choose just one spa treatment (close to impossible) we enjoyed picking from one of their well-thought out packages.

Confluence Park

Confluence Park – Kayaking

Take a break and appreciate the surroundings of this fabulous city at Confluence Park.  This park is great for people and dog watching, and happens to be a short distance from the Ritz Carlton.  Located along the South Platte River, it’s a great little pop of nature in the middle of the city!
