Denver Recap



Hey guys! Yesterday I got home from spending 4 glorious days in Denver! I went to visit my cousin, Natasha, and stayed with her and her husband. As hard as it is leaving my boys, it was so nice to have this time to myself. This was my second time visiting Denver and I think I fell in love with it even more than the first time I visited (you can read my other 2 recaps here and here)...it is just so gorgeous there with the mountains! There is not much to dislike about the city and if we were to ever move out west, I would definitely want it to be here.


After eating out for almost every single meal, we were joking how badly we now need to detox but at the same time we had THE most delicious food everywhere we went! On my last trip we made the drive out to Vail, so this time we stayed more in Denver for the majority of the time but spent a day going to Rocky Mountain National Park (which was my absolute favorite day of the trip!)

Rocky Mountain National Park has been on my bucket list for years. We went at the most perfect time too because the weather was beautiful (about 90 in Denver but there in the mountains it was around 65/67), it had just snowed so the mountains were covered, and we were able to see so many animals! The pictures are gorgeous, but really don't do the views justice. It was just breathtaking and I'm already dying to get back to the mountains to see it all over again! You are about to get picture OVERLOAD here...

 (we were so close to all these elk, it was slighty scary but so cool at the same time!)
 (making it to the top!)
 (the wind was INSANEEEE)

On our way to RMNP we also stopped at Grand Lake to walk around, explore some shops, and get lunch (we had the most delicious mexican lunch at Pacifico..if you go you must get their burritos!) And on the way home from RMNP we stopped in Estes Park to have a few cocktails before heading back to Denver! It was such a fun day.





As for everywhere we went in Denver, I will just go ahead and list the places we ate at and share the pictures! All of these places I HIGHLY recommend going to if you plan to visit Denver. If you have any specific questions about traveling there or one of these places, feel free to email me!
