American Restaurant

“Tennessee Pass is a great restaurant serving American food. The brussels sprouts are amazing! (even if you don't normally like them) They have a cute little bar with a lot of great beer choices. The large outdoor seating area is great. *Note: ask if they are out of anything. They are occasionally out of certain things as many ingredients are locally sourced”

Store
“Technical fleeces and outdoor clothing with cult underground following. Unique because all the clothing is made on site and you can only buy it in their one Leadville store. You can watch the seamstresses at work. Items sell out fast. ”
