Larimer Square, LoDo, and The Highlands 

Downtown Denver, Capitol Hill, City Park, Cheeseman Park, including a tour of The Brown Palace Hotel or Molly Brown’s House 

LarimerSquareDenverLarimer Square is an area as rich in history as it is in fine shopping and dining. It is the  Mile High City’s oldest and most historic block.

The history of what we now know as Denver goes back to the 19th century land claims. In 1858, Colorado was born as news of gold spread east. Green Russell and a party of Georgians made the first gold strike that summer. They settled at the point where Speer Boulevard crosses Larimer Street today and called their camp Auraria. Soon another group arrived and set up town stakes across the creek and called their settlement St. Charles (about where the Granite building now stands on the corner of 15th and Larimer Streets). Then most of the second group went back to Kansas during the winter to register their township and stock up on provisions to return in the spring.

antiqueJust after their departure, another group from Kansas arrived at St. Charles headed by General William H. Larimer Jr. He liked what he found and immediately staked out a town for himself as he sent his sidekicks off to Leavenworth. They arrived before the original St. Charles representatives and “jumped” the claim, renaming the town site Denver City after James Denver, the territorial governor of Kansas. The main street was named after General Larimer. Larimer and his son constructed a 16-foot by 20-foot cabin shortly after they arrived. The down-to-earth General had an interesting sense of humor; the doors to his cabin were coffin lids! Also, his cabin had the only “glass” window in Denver.

old-south-gaylordThe Old South Gaylord Shopping District is the second oldest shopping district in Denver. Old South Gaylord St., was founded in 1924.  It was a cable car turn-around for the Denver City Tramway Company until the 1950’s when the streetcars were replaced with buses.

In June of 1893, the Denver Tramway Company extended it’s trolley car line from Alameda to Jewell Avenue along South Pearl Street. A few years later, tracks were completed south to Evans and then east to service the growing University of Denver. The University of Denver quickly became known as Tramway Tech and the building boom was on.

Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater Tour

Begin this tour with a stop into one of Denver’s many fine retail marijuana shops. Relax and enjoy your limo ride and bud, all guests receive a box of gourmet munchies and smoking paraphernalia.

red rocksAt 6,450 feet above sea level, Red Rocks Park is a transitional zone where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains. Some of the rock formations in Red Rocks slope as much as 90 degrees, while others tilt backwards. The southern monolith, that bears resemblance to a ship, is named “Ship Rock.” On the opposite side of the Amphitheatre stands “Creation Rock.” Both of the monoliths are taller than Niagara Falls, and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre was once listed as among the Seven Wonders of the World.

The most unique feature of the park is Red Rocks Amphitheatre. This geological phenomenon opened to music venues June 15, 1941 and seats 9,450. Red Rocks Amphitheater is the only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheater in the world.

PHO-rock-n-roll-hallway-Don-Peitzman-photo-contest-10.13.09-SMMany artists have released audio and video recordings of their performances at Red Rocks. Dave Matthews Band, The Samples, Incubus, The Moody Blues, John Tesh, Ricky Lee Jones, Rob Thomas, String Cheese Incident, Stevie Nicks, Boukman Eksperyans and Bill and Gloria Gaither, to name a few. One of the most famous concert videos ever released was from U2’s 1983 Under the Blood Red Sky tour, when a fully mulleted Bono belted out “Sunday Bloody Sunday” amid a hypnotic fog and rock formations festooned with massive flames. The Performers Hall of Fame is a tribute to the legendary performances at Red Rocks, including The Beatles, The Grateful Dead and Jimi Hendrix.
