three perfect days: denver

As far as American cities go, at a mere 160 years old, Denver is a lot like a youngest sibling. Founded on a barrel of whiskey—and a death threat—the Mile High City has always played by its own rules. When the transcontinental railroad bypassed the city in the 1860s, Denver started its own rail company and established itself as the preeminent metropolis in the West. More recently, in the midst of unprecedented development, Denver has made itself an alluring alternative to coastal cities, with the promise of easy Rocky Mountain access, 300 sunny days a year, and one of the most dynamic dining scenes in the country.

The development happened at such a breakneck pace that within the last five years the term for the new art district (RiNo) is now more commonly used than the historical neighborhood name (Five Points). That change doesn’t seem to be slowing down either. But this time RiNo has set its sights on a different part of Denver — downtown.
