    Be patient when looking for parking. Keep plenty of change in your car for meters. They take cards these days, too. Remember, don't park so close to someone that it forces them to hit you!

    Take a tip from your friendly neighborhood Human-Man and visit the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. It happens to be the largest natural history museum in the western United States!

    Denver is one of the few cities in history that was not built on a road, railroad, lake, navigable river or body of water. It was built right where the first gold flakes were discovered in 1858.

    I love freeways on the West so much better than East Coast roads. Pay attention to toll roads in case you don't want any surprise charges.

    "Bum asked me for money. I asked him what for? He said beers. I gave him money & went to the store for the same thing. Love don't judge. Adventure more. Enjoy the Mile High City!

    The REI/Starbucks Plaza is like a little slice of shaded heaven. Perfect for work or play.

    Feeling disoriented? The mountains are to the a West. The streets run North and South; and, avenues run East and West.

    The first permanent structure in Denver was a saloon. Cowboy up and have a drink, but don't go driving that wagon afterward!

    Cheesman Park currently has 2000 corpses underneath it. Legend says that in spring, you can spot where the graves are because the grass turns green the earliest in spring.

    There were originally three separate towns where Denver now stands. In 1859, the other names were dropped in return for a barrel of whiskey to be shared by all.

    The Colorado Automobile Dealers Association is the voice of the automotive retail industry in Colorado. CADA also works to educate the driving public. Just ask President Tim Jackson!

    Beautiful city. 16th Street is very nice but the homeless situation is out of control. It's sad to see so many less fortunate souls.

    Colfax Avenue is the longest continuous street in America. Better fill that gas tank up if you're going the distance!
