Before the game in Denver, we had some time to tour the city. First of all, it’s very walkable, and has a lot of great things to see and do. Colorado is one of the best states for craft beer, and I had one of the best Marzens on draft I’ve ever tasted. And that brewery had a special friend we got to meet!
One of the big surprises was the National Ballpark Museum, right down the street from Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies. It is one of the largest private collections of baseball stadium memorabilia in the world. It has items from all turn of the twentieth century ballparks, including Forbes Field (Pittsburgh), Comiskey Park (Chicago) and Crosley Field (Cincinnati)..
The city also had some amazing murals of a variety of subjects.
The biggest surprise to Michelle and me was the Denver Botanical Gardens. Michelle is more of a garden person than me, so she was thrilled, but I was so enamored by the natural beauty of the place, as well as its unique layout.
This trip, in its entirety, is one I will remember for the rest of my life.
