    Denver, CO attractions

    my wife and i are going to a wedding this weekend in Denver...she is in the wedding so she has a bunch of things to do which leaves me with some time on friday and saturday to kill and a rental car to get around...i'd love to go hiking if i had time and room to bring my gear but hiking alone on unfamiliar terrain at a different altitude with time constraints probably isn't a good idea...anyone have any input on some things to check out near the city while i'm there?

    Casa Bonita!!!

    No. Just kidding. Feeling a bit nostalgic this morning. Loved it when I was a kid.

    You probably want to stay around town and it's been 30 years since I was there, but if you haven't been before, you drive up Pike's Peak. I hear it's paved now so that would be easy on the rental car. When I rode to the top is was all gravel past the guard shack. You could also kill some time and drive up to Estes Park. It was a pretty drive and we spent lots of money shopping. Not sure if all those businesses are open as tourist season has slowed.

    thanks for the suggestions admiral...pikes peak looks pretty cool...it's a little bit of a drive but we will see how much time i have...it looks like they have a downhill skateboard race on saturday up there...i'm not a huge shopper but if they have a lot of outdoorsy shops at estes park i may take the drive...i did find a brewpub close to my hotel so that may be one of my stops for some food especially since i can walk and don't have to drive

    You could go for a local hike, get some fresh air and work up an appetite for wedding cake. Recounting your hike would make good small talk with locals at the wedding.

    Or take the tour of the Coors plant and embarrass your wife by reeking of beer and pretending you are really drunk.

    thanks for the link Fred...it looks like some of those hikes aren't too far away and would be manageable without my hiking gear...being that high up i'm sure i will get tired faster and drunk faster

    I imagine you could rent a mountain bike for added thrills, see more trail mileage and maybe come back with some bugs in your teeth. Mile High Denver's elevation should not be too difficult to adapt to in a short amount of time.The Best 10 Bike Rentals in Denver, CO - Yelp
