Denver insider

Staying in Denver for a day or two before or after the conference?

You can enjoy the wonderful Colorado outdoors, including the world famous Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater, the Roxborough State Park or of course the Rocky Mountain National Park (hint: we'll be there for the Sprint).

If you prefer urban settings, you can stroll along the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall or visit the Denver Art Museum, the Downtown Aquarium or Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum.

For unique culinary experiences you can try the Buckhorn Exchange for a wild west experience, or the Domo Japanese country food restaurant, garden and museum.

Wanna go out at night? Based on your preferences you might try the Cowboy Lounge (country/rock), Jazz at Jacks (jazz), the Soiled Dove (casual), Lannies (cabaret), Comedy Works (comedy) or the Impulse Theater (improv)

Finally, for the geeks out there, a visit to the local Micro Center is a must if you don't have one in your home town.
