Hidden gem off the beaten path in Aurora - don't be fooled by the strip mall exterior. Hands down the best Indian place I've found in Colorado. The service can be a bit slow as it's family run, but well worth the wait. The samosas and dosas are incredible. Always ask for the lowest spice setting to be safe ;-)

Best Thai food I've found in the entire state so far. Another hidden gem in a strip mall in Aurora. I'm a huge fan of the drunken noodles. The owner usually stops by to greet you. No alcohol served, but you can bring a bottle of wine to drink there. If you want Thai, this is the only place I can recommend.

If you're looking for something a bit more on the bistro side, this a great new spot that's just down the street!

Sightseeing

Just a few miles east of the AirBnb, this is one of Denver's best parks. You'll find a 2.5 mile loop trail around the outside of the park, a lake with swans and paddleboats, and lots of fresh flowers depending on the time of year. Otherwise, you can ride bikes, play volleyball, or just relax and have a picnic under the large old trees. Free parking on any of the surrounding streets. Also check out all the fun homes around the park - some historic and some new.

Red Rocks Amphitheater is not to be missed. Don't miss the opportunity to see a show here during the summer. The acoustics are incredible and the natural stone surroundings are awe inspiring. You can visit even when there is no event happening. There are even morning exercise classes on the many stairs or folks who just go to run the stairs to get into shape. There are also several great hiking trails near Red Rocks. I recommend Mount Falcon East Trailhead as you get lots of trail options (and also mountain biking if you like) and you get a nice view of Red Rocks from a distance.

The Denver Art Museum is an intriguingly shaped building with consistently outstanding exhibits. Be careful as the interior can give you vertigo (not kidding). Nearby, you'll also find the Kirkland museum as well as several other museums. I recommend parking in the Cultural Center Complex Garage - entrance is located on 12th between Broadway & Acoma. You can also easily walk from the art museum to the Denver Library, the History Colorado Center, the Denver Capitol, Denver Courthouse, and the 16th Street Mall.

Huge city park (that used to be a cemetery!). You'll find lots of folks getting exercise around the outside loop and others just relaxing on the huge grass lawn. Right next to the Botanic Garden for a combined trip.

The Denver classic that's part Disney and part cafeteria food. If you have kids or love South Park, you're required to go. Soon to be under new management by the creators of South Park!

Denver Neighborhoods

Just a couple of the trendy neighborhoods so you can sound like you're one of the locals ;-)
Lower Highlands aka Lo-Hi is a trendy neighborhood west of the city on the west side of I-25, directly north of the AirBnb. There are many high end dining spots and breweries, but be sure to check out Linger for food and Little Man Ice Cream for dessert - there's always a line (even in the winter!).

Ri-No is short for River North. This area is great for a late night out with lots of trendy places for a drink and some food on the side. The area is an old warehouse district that's been redeveloped into a trendy arts neighborhood. Check out a show at the Mission Ballroom if you get the chance - it's an incredible venue!

This area of Denver is a bit more chic. Many high end shops and restaurants as well as some amazing homes to see as you head north of the shopping mall area. You can also bike for miles along the Cherry Creek trail (concrete) or you can check out the farmer's market across from the Whole Foods.
