View San Diego to Denver, April 2011 on darrenesl's travel map.

Friday night and Saturday were spent enjoying time with fellow alumni of Mile High Academy. Reconnecting with friends and reminiscing on old memories made for a great time. For more on this visit www.darrenesl.blogspot.com and enjoy pictures and more.

DSCI0322.jpg Sunday was a day to spend enjoying the sunshine and atmosphere of Coors Field. Built as the first downtown baseball-only park in the National League, Coors Field boasts the title of best park in baseball. It is full of amenities and attractions for the entire family. Prices range from affordable to expensive, with numerous seats providing an excellent view of the Denver downtown skyline. Several excellent restaurants and microbreweries make up the surrounding LoDo area.

After watching some baseball, it was time to go shopping. Just a few blocks away lies the 16th Street Mall. DSCI0369.jpg
An outdoor pedestrian mall, filled with various shops, restaurants, bars, and street musicians, this attraction consists of tourists, locals, and street people. The buildings are full of detail in the architecture and provide a glimpse of Denver's past. One disappointment is the emptiness of the Tabor Center.

By this time we were getting hungry. There is no better place cap off a trip to downtown, than with a meal from Rodizio Grill. DSCI0386.jpg A Brazilian Steakhouse, Rodizio features a complete salad bar, hot food deck, and gauchos bringing an excellent assortment of meats and seafood to your table. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is great for an intimate or a large party. You will definitely not be disappointed.

After our fine meal, we took a nice drive to the beautiful Red Rocks amphitheater. Having hosted various talent from Jazz to Symphony to Rock, Red Rocks provides as excellent view of the city and shows – the amazing colors of Colorado. A short informative film highlights the history and building of the amphitheater and the musicians who have played there.
