Baseball Stadium

Zoo

Go underwater with polar bears at Northern Shores, or eyeball-to-eyeball with a gorilla in Primate Panorama. Predator Ridge recreates the plains of Africa with a pride of lions, while Tropical Discovery is rainforest teeming with crocodiles and gila monsters. ”

New American Restaurant

“Linger about 2.6 miles away, is a great restaurant and bar offering "international street food" so the cuisine is a bit all over the place, but lots of good asian cuisine. Be sure to check out the roof top bar with really nice downtown views, with the "O'Linger mortuaries" -it really used to be a mortuary! ”

Cocktail Bar
“It’s hard to overstate Williams & Graham’s impact in putting Denver’s bar scene on the national radar. You'd be hard-pressed to find better drinks than at this dark haunt, accessed through a bookshelf in a storefront. Because this is a must-visit for tourists and locals alike, waits for a seat are almost never short - but there is plenty to do in the LoHi neighborhood while you wait!”

Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant
“Catered to an eclectic group of diners: vegans, vegetarians, late-night club-goers and bar hoppers, the gluten-free, and open-minded omnivores.”
