It’s raining here and quite dark so I started thinking about going to Denver in June for the HOW Conference and found this hopeful nugget of information: “Denver has over 300 days of sunshine.” Wow, that sounds awesome right now. So do all the cool shops and restaurants that are detailed in the Denver City Guide on Design*Sponge. For example:
Broadway, one of Denver’s main drags, houses everything from museums to the famous antique row. Start off near 13th where you can visit City O’ CityDenver Museum of Art, with its new 146,000 sq. ft. addition by famed architect Daniel Libeskind. If you’re on a budget, you can check out the outdoor sculptures and walk through the postmodern central branch of the Denver Public Library, which was designed by Michael Graves and is located right next door.Further down Broadway, you’ll find local shops such as Fancy Tiger, True Love shoes, Decade, Boss vintage clothing and Indy Ink. If antique hunting is your thing, you can head further south where you’ll find 18 blocks of antiques galore. Stop by the hipster hangout Sputnik for a snack (they have the best sweet potato fries in town) and finish off your day by catching a flick at the historic Mayan Theatre or some music at the Hi-Dive.
