Lauren from Chicago asked

Girls' Weekend in Denver?

I'll be heading to Denver in August with 3 friends for a girls' weekend/my birthday/Brandi Carlisle at Red Rocks and I'm looking for suggestions for all things Denver! 

We'll likely try and find a place to stay on Airbnb, any recommendations on where to stay (location-wise)?

Great coffee shops? Spin studios? Brunch options? Hiking opportunities? Cool tours? Dinner options? Unique local shops? Any other can't-miss places in Denver?

Crooked Stave at the The Sourcewould be a good place to spend a couple hours. 

I love the Highlands area, as someone has already recommended. Some cute shops and restaurants in that neighborhood. 

You may want to check out Denver Union Station in LoDo. It's recently be renovated and it's incredible. Have brunch at Mercantile Dining & Provisions and drinks at Cooper Lounge (the later is very Mad Men-esq). 

You could also take the light rail into Golden (Colorado). There are several fun breweries there and some good shopping. Don't miss the Golden Moon Speak. They make one of my favorite gins and the tasting room/bar is really fun. 

I could go on and on. 

Here are some HeidiTown posts that I've written about Denver!

You might find some helpful things in those two posts. Have fun! You can't go wrong in the Mile High City.

Root Down is a great brunch spot. Also, if you're into books Tattered Cover Book Store books downtown is great!

Cherry Creek and Hilltop are definitely the "nice" upscale neighborhoods. Cherry Creek is also a nice, outdoor shopping area. If you're looking to be near downtown, try Capitol Hill (Denver) or North Capitol Hill/City Park West areas. For hiking I recommend Chautauqua in Boulder (if you have a car). You'll find yoga anywhere! For brunch you've got to try Second Home Kitchen + Bar inside the JW Marriott in Cherry Creek if you like bottomless mimosas. You won't regret it!
