    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!

    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.

    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!

    "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!

    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.

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

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

    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.
