Per Buffalo Bill’s request, he was buried overlooking the Great Plains and the Rockies, making this a one-of-a-kind place to explore while you’re in the area.

Of course, no trip to Denver is complete without visiting some of the city’s best restaurants and getting a feel for what Denver culture is like outside of mountain living. After you’ve smelled the Ponderosa Pines (yes, they really smell like sugar cookies), you’ll want to take some time to explore downtown Denver’s oldest neighborhood, also known as LoDo. There, you can visit Larimer Square and walk up and down decorated streets with several options to eat at some of Denver’s hottest restaurants. Close to Larimer Square, you’ll find 16th Street Mall, a mile-long promenade with plenty of shops and outdoor cafes to explore. You won’t have a dull moment traveling or eating your way through downtown Denver and getting a feel for what locals and tourists alike enjoy about the Mile High City.
