A woman at Union Station in Denver during winter

Denver, Colorado is a fun city to visit anytime during the year, but I had the opportunity to make my way to the mile-high city during winter.

Even though I visited Denver at the end of autumn, it was definitely already a winter wonderland!

During late November 2019, I was invited by my friend Kristy of Ventre’s Adventures to do a road trip throughout some of the most beautiful areas in Colorado.

Kristy, Hannah of Don’t Blink Blog and myself started and ended in Denver and then made our way to Alamosa, Cañon City, Colorado Springs and Estes Park.

Even though I will have another blog post specifically about our road trip and the adventures we partook in, I am excited to dedicate this article just to Denver during the winter.

Larimer Square in Denver during winter

Some fun facts about Colorado’s capital is that Denver is actually not in the Rocky Mountains, it’s in the Great Plains.

The city has 300 days of sunshine a year. It is one of the most active cities in America (along with San Diego) and half of the people on my flight to Colorado walked on with a yoga mat.

In addition, Denver is also one of the eco-friendliest cities in the country!

In this blog post, discover the top things to do in Denver during the winter months.

I also had the opportunity to partner with Hotel Teatro during my last two nights in the mile-high city. I cannot wait to share my experiences with you all!

Denver in winter the complete travel guide

Getting to and around Colorado:

A woman standing on top of a Jeep during a road trip in Colorado

If you are traveling to Colorado, it is best to fly into Denver since you could find flights at an affordable cost. (I flew from Newark Airport in New Jersey straight to Denver International Airport within 3 hours!)

If you are looking to fly into Aspen, Telluride, Steamboat Springs or anywhere else in the state, it is going to be much more expensive. So I recommend flying into Denver and renting a car from there.

The Welcome to Colorful Colorado Sign

Getting around the city of Denver could easily be done by walking or taking an Uber. It is easy to drive in Denver as compared to bigger cities like New York, but it could be difficult to find parking.

If you are planning on doing a road trip through the state or even looking to get out of the city in general (which you should if you visit Colorado), I highly recommend renting a car; especially an SUV with 4-wheel drive.

(Click here if you are planning to road trip around the United States and want to rent an RV.)

We had a great Jeep Wrangler that got us through some pretty scary escapades. During our first evening in Denver, we ended up getting into a 50-car pile-up on an overpass that led onto Route 25. (Click here to learn more, plus you could even see our Wrangler in the pile-up.)

Overall, we were extremely fortunate that our Jeep was the ONLY vehicle that didn’t get hit, even though we were stuck there for a couple hours. I will admit that it was pretty scary because so many vehicles were totaled, people were rushed to the hospital and a car even caught on fire.

The Denver police and fire departments did a great job making sure everyone was safe, but it was nerve wracking to think that this could happen to anyone during the winter. That is why I highly recommend renting an SUV or truck during your time in Colorado.

Hotel Teatro in Denver during Winter:

Hotel Teatro in Denver during winter

­­­­One of my top experiences during my time in Denver, Colorado was staying at Hotel Teatro, located in the LoDo area of the city.

I was absolutely impressed and loved how spacious, clean and beautiful my Deluxe Corner King Room was. I had views of the city and nearby Rocky Mountains. Plus, I received the best night’s rest during my entire trip in their cozy Simmons Beautyrest Black™ mattress (of course after watching Hallmark Christmas movies).

The lobby of Hotel Teatro in Denver

The building that Hotel Teatro is located in goes back to 1863 when Denver’s Governor Evans built a brick cottage for his family in the downtown area.

The Evans family continued their quest to build up Denver in the years following that. In 1911, two architects set out to design an 8-story office tower for the Denver Tramway Company. The design combined modern construction and a traditional Renaissance Revival-style architecture of glazed red brick and white terra cotta.

The first-floor lobby led to the offices of the Treasurer and Train Master, while physicians and a legal department occupied the second floor. The eighth floor was inhabited by the president, whose boardroom was lined with oak and marble.

The Denver Tramway trolleys were in service until 1950 and were later used by the University of Colorado at Denver. The Tramway Building was purchased by the Tramway Hotel, LLC in 1994 and in 1999 it became the 110-room Hotel Teatro.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Hotel Teatro was recently voted the No. 3 Best Hotel in Colorado in Conde Nast Traveler’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards.

Hotel TeatroDenver’s original boutique hotel, is located in a modern Renaissance Revival building and it provides its guests with a memorable experience in the mile-high city.

Welcome gifts at Hotel Teatro in Denver

When I checked into my room, I was greeted with a bottle of Champagne, chocolates, a leather notepad and a lovely note from the hotel. It was absolutely wonderful feeling so welcomed at this beautiful hotel.

Inside of my Deluxe Corner King Room was a king-sized bed, pull-out couch, coffee table with two chairs, desk, 50” LCD television, Keurig in-room coffee maker, safe, plush terry robes and more.

I absolutely LOVED the bathroom as it offered two sinks, a rain shower, deep soaking bathtub and a lot of space. Plus, I loved the marble floors and lighting!

In addition to the Deluxe Corner King Room, Hotel Teatro also has a Superior Queen Room, Superior King Room, Superior Queen Room with a Balcony, Deluxe Two Queen Room, Petite Queen Room, Petite King Room, Petite Manhattan Room, Junior Suite and the Chancellor’s Suite.

A woman enjoying her time at Hotel Teatro in Denver during winter

Another reason why I loved staying at Hotel Teatro was that it was located in a prime spot.

It is easily walkable to city hotspots such as the Denver Center for Performing Arts, the Colorado Convention Center, Union Station, Larimer Square and professional sports and entertainment venues such as Coors Field (where the Colorado Rockies play) as well as the Pepsi Center (where the Denver Nuggets play).

Inside of Hotel Teatro in Denver

You also do not need to leave the hotel to have a wonderful experience in Denver!

Hotel Teatro offers a lovely restaurant called The Nickel, which offers exquisite dining and there is also a wonderful bar too called The Barrel Bar.

The reason why Hotel Teatro’s restaurant is called The Nickel is because in the early 1900s, people in Denver would take the streetcars for just a nickel per ride.

The Nickel at Hotel Teatro in Denver

The restaurant offers a seasonal menu with locally sourced ingredients, house barrel-aged spirits, a coffee roasting program and the original vault that once collected the nickel fare from streetcar passengers.

In 2019, The Nickel was named Best Hotel Restaurant in Colorado. After a beautiful day in the mountains, it was nice to come back to Hotel Teatro and grab a drink at The Nickel! (Plus, it was beautifully decorated for Christmas.)

In addition to The Nickel, Hotel Teatro also has The Study, which is a warm and cozy gathering space that hosts breakfasts on Monday to Friday from 6:30am to 11:00am.

It is a beautiful space with stunning decorations, a fireplace, comfortable couches and chairs, plus more. I enjoyed breakfast in The Study on my last morning in Denver and it was the icing on top of the cake with the snow softly falling outside.

The gym at Hotel Teatro in Denver

Other great amenities that Hotel Teatro offers is complimentary WiFi throughout the entire property; same day laundry and dry cleaning services on Monday through Saturday; it is pet friendly; offers a 24-hour fitness center for those looking to work out on their trip; cruiser bicycles that you can ride around Denver on a first come, first serve basis; valet car service; courtesy transportation service within a 2.5-mile radius (this is super convenient when you want to go out at night or even in the cold); 24-hour in-room dining service; in-room spa and massage services and EVBox Electric Vehicle Charging Stations.  

The Study at Hotel Teatro in Denver during winter

Overall, I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Teatro and recommend it as the leading boutique hotel in Denver, Colorado! It is extra special staying here during a Denver winter.

Below, discover the top 10 things to do in Denver during the winter from where to eat and drink to outdoor adventures.

Visit Union Station:

Union Station in Denver during winter

The very first place we visited when we got to Denver was the historic Union Station.

Not only is Union Station Denver’s primary train station, it is also known as Denver’s “Living Room” for dining, drinking and shopping.

Union Station in Denver during Christmas

Since we visited Denver during winter in late November, there was a beautiful Christmas tree with festive decorations surrounding the Great Hall.

This wonderful space is perfect if you are looking to grab a coffee and catch up with a friend, get work done and relax.

This station pays homage to a pioneer spirit while embracing modernity.

A breakfast burrito at Snooze in Union Station, Denver

During our time at Union Station, we grabbed breakfast at Snooze an A.M. Eatery. I had a breakfast burrito and enjoyed a candy cane boozy hot chocolate on the side.

Snooze is a chain restaurant that is based in Arizona, California, Colorado, Texas, North Carolina, Georgia and Missouri.

Stroll through Larimer Square:

You can’t visit Denver and not stroll through the city’s oldest and dreamiest street.

Located a few blocks from Hotel Teatro is the lit-up block that consist of independent shops, high-end restaurants, cozy bars as well as wellness and beauty services.

A woman standing in Larimer Square at night during winter

Not only is Larimer Square lit up during the holidays, it also has its stringed lights hanging all year round. I visited Larimer Square both during the day and also at night and it was so beautiful. This spot is extra special during Denver’s winter.

Enjoy Local Food and Drinks in Denver:

A Tulum-inspired restaurant in Denver

There is no surprise that I love exploring the foodie scene when I travel. I also like going out for drinks at swanky bars where I could enjoy the ambiance as well.

Below are a list of places I ate and drank at during my time in Denver:

A restaurant decorated for Christmas in Denver

The Kitchen American Bistro: Located right off of Larimer Square in LoDo is The Kitchen, a locally sourced restaurant that provides sustainable meals for guests.

Kristy, Hannah and I came here for some wine during our first day walking around Denver. It was a trendy and cozy spot that was decorated beautifully for Christmas.

Beatrice and Woodsley: If you are looking for a Tulum vibe in Denver, Beatrice and Woodsley is definitely the place to go near Washington Park!

We had a tapas dinner at this dreamy spot our first night and I will have to admit that the drinks are better than the food, but I definitely loved the vibe!

During our time at Beatrice and Woodsley, I enjoyed a glass of wine with gnocchi and fried escargot.

Pad Thai from Linger in Denver, Colorado

Linger: For those who love Asian food, I recommend going to Linger when you are in Denver! It was definitely one of the top restaurants we visited during our time in Colorado!

Located in an old mortuary in the Highland neighborhood, Linger is a chic lounge that also offers a rooftop. During our time here, I enjoyed wine with pad Thai and a Korean fried chicken bao bun. It was delicious!

Little Man Ice Cream in Denver, Colorado

Little Man Ice Cream: Also located in the Highland neighborhood of Denver is Little Man Ice Cream.

Now, I knew about this ice cream shop way before I came to Denver thanks to Instagram, so I was excited that we showed up there since it was near Linger.

Inspired by vintage Coney Island hot dog-shaped stands, Little Man Ice Cream is conducted within a 28-foot tall, 14,000 lb. ice cream can. Here, you could enjoy numerous flavors of homemade ice cream, plus more!

In addition, during Denver’s winter, Little Man Ice Cream also has a mini Christmas tree stand right next to it. I loved enjoying my hot chocolate-flavored cone with all of the pretty trees surrounding me.

Avanti in Denver

Avanti Food and Beverage: One of the best places to have fun in Denver is Avanti, also located in Highland.

With two large bars, a lounge and dining area as well as a rooftop deck, Avanti offers something for everyone. There is even a Christmas pop-up bar located at Avanti as well!

During our time here, we just grabbed a beer and enjoyed the rooftop. (Denver is known for great craft beer.) Even though it was colder outside, there were heated lamps surrounding us.

In addition to craft beer, you could also grab French-inspired street food, pizza, Asian food, poke, Venezuelan cuisine, Mexican food, rotisserie and more at Avanti.

A pasta dish from Rioja in Denver, Colorado

Rioja: The absolute BEST restaurant we visited during our time in Denver was Rioja – an award-winning Mediterranean restaurant located on Larimer Street.

We visited Rioja on our last night, which just so happened to be during a snowstorm. It was a short walk from Hotel Teatro, which was super convenient.

From the moment we entered Rioja, we knew we would be in for a great experience! The vibe of Rioja was absolutely comforting and swanky, the staff were super energetic and friendly and the food was amazing.

We both got wine and I enjoyed squid ink tagliatelle pasta with clams and sausage in a white wine sauce. It was incredible! After we were done with dinner, they gave us sugar coated mint leaves.

Walk Around the Beauty at the Denver Botanical Gardens:

Flowers from the Denver Botanical Garden

Whenever I visit a new U.S. city, I always enjoy visiting the botanical gardens. Every city does a wonderful plant display and I never walk away disappointed.

The Denver Botanical Gardens offer living, natural history, library and art collections to admire. During the holiday season, there are also beautiful Christmas light displays as well!

Get into the Holiday Spirit at the Christmas Markets and Ice-Skating Rink:

Denver's Christmas Market

One thing I did not expect to see in Denver was a German Christkindlmarket.

Now, it may not be like the Christmas markets in Europe, but it is definitely a cute place to visit during Christmastime.

Christkindlmarkt in Denver, Colorado during winter

This annual Christkindlmarkt brings German holiday traditions to Denver and it allows locals and visitors to enjoy glühwein (mulled wine), Bavarian-style biers and food, European coffee or hot chocolate. There are charming wooden huts with Christmas lights that sell artisan gifts, holiday treats and even CBD. (When in Colorado right?)

In addition to the Christmas markets, Denver also has a downtown ice-skating rink at Skyline Park. It is the perfect place to go in Denver if you are looking for a fun activity during winter.  

Admire the Talent at Denver Art Museum:

Denver Art Museum

If you are someone who appreciates art and enjoys going to museums, then you definitely have to visit the Denver Art Museum, which is located in the Civic Center.

Known as one of the largest art museums out west, you could walk through the Claude Monet, the Anthony McCall Eyes On, the British Art, the Shantell Martin and The Light Show exhibitions at the Denver Art Museum.

Tour the Colorado State Capitol:

Colorado state capital

After walking through the Denver Art Museum, I recommend walking through Capitol City Park and admiring the beautiful Colorado State Capitol. Throughout the day, you could book a tour and get a U.S. history lesson about the “Centennial State”.

Watch a Denver Ball Game:

Coors Field in Denver

Just like many other U.S. cities, Denver also has renowned sports teams. You could catch the Denver Broncos playing football at Sports Authority Field at Mile High; the Colorado Rockies play baseball downtown at Coors Field; NBA’s Denver Nuggets play basketball at the Pepsi Center in downtown and many more!

See a Concert at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater:

Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater during Denver's winter

One of the top things you need to do in Denver is visit the Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater located a little outside of the heart of the city.

This open-air amphitheater is built into a rock structure where you could catch a concert, watch the stars, go on a hike, shop, do a tour, bike and so much more!

Seeing snow on the red rocks during Denver’s winter is extra special!

Do a Day Trip during Denver’s Winter:

Three women at Garden of the Gods in Colorado

There are unlimited day trips you could take from Denver during the winter. Below are some top recommendations:

    • Taylor Deer on December 12, 2020 at 8:22 pm

      Colorado is beautiful all year long. I want to go back and go skiing. 🙂

  9. Courtney on December 15, 2020 at 2:55 pm

    This is such a great list! I live in Denver and you really touched on a ton of great places that I normally suggest to visitors.
    Also, I about died when you mentioned people boarding the plane with yoga mats! I originally moved here from Florida and was blown away at first by how normal it is for people for wear pieces of workout gear as a normal attire EVERYWHERE here. Mall; workout clothes, out to dinner; workout clothes, grocery shopping; workout clothes, park day; workout clothes. It’s so funny when you’re not used to it.

    • Taylor Deer on December 16, 2020 at 10:10 pm

      Thank you so much Courtney! It was a fun city and I’d love to go back and explore more in the surrounding area. Also yes, I find it awesome how athletic and active people are there. All cities should be like that. 🙂

  10. Kylie on January 2, 2021 at 2:42 am

  11. Catherine on January 2, 2021 at 1:18 pm

    I’ve never actually been to Denver (YET) but love the idea of so many sunny, clear days there – even in the winter. This post about winter travel to Denver, CO is so informative and detailed. I’d definitely want to explore the capitol building – it looks beautiful.

    • Taylor Deer on January 2, 2021 at 5:48 pm

A woman at Union Station in Denver during winter

Denver, Colorado is a fun city to visit anytime during the year, but I had the opportunity to make my way to the mile-high city during winter.

Even though I visited Denver at the end of autumn, it was definitely already a winter wonderland!

A woman in Rocky Mountain National Park during a snowstorm

During late November 2019, I was invited by my friend Kristy of Ventre’s Adventures to do a road trip throughout some of the most beautiful areas in Colorado.

Kristy, Hannah of Don’t Blink Blog and myself started and ended in Denver and then made our way to Alamosa, Cañon City, Colorado Springs and Estes Park.

Even though I will have another blog post specifically about our road trip and the adventures we partook in, I am excited to dedicate this article just to Denver during the winter.

Larimer Square in Denver during winter

Some fun facts about Colorado’s capital is that Denver is actually not in the Rocky Mountains, it’s in the Great Plains.

The city has 300 days of sunshine a year. It is one of the most active cities in America (along with San Diego) and half of the people on my flight to Colorado walked on with a yoga mat.

In addition, Denver is also one of the eco-friendliest cities in the country!

I also had the opportunity to partner with Hotel Teatro during my last two nights in the mile-high city. I cannot wait to share my experiences with you all!

Denver in winter the complete travel guide

Getting to and around Colorado:

A woman standing on top of a Jeep during a road trip in Colorado

If you are traveling to Colorado, it is best to fly into Denver since you could find flights at an affordable cost. (I flew from Newark Airport in New Jersey straight to Denver International Airport within 3 hours!)

If you are looking to fly into Aspen, Telluride, Steamboat Springs or anywhere else in the state, it is going to be much more expensive. So I recommend flying into Denver and renting a car from there.

The Welcome to Colorful Colorado Sign

Getting around the city of Denver could easily be done by walking or taking an Uber. It is easy to drive in Denver as compared to bigger cities like New York, but it could be difficult to find parking.

If you are planning on doing a road trip through the state or even looking to get out of the city in general (which you should if you visit Colorado), I highly recommend renting a car; especially an SUV with 4-wheel drive.

(Click here if you are planning to road trip around the United States and want to rent an RV.)

We had a great Jeep Wrangler that got us through some pretty scary escapades. During our first evening in Denver, we ended up getting into a 50-car pile-up on an overpass that led onto Route 25. (Click here to learn more, plus you could even see our Wrangler in the pile-up.)

Overall, we were extremely fortunate that our Jeep was the ONLY vehicle that didn’t get hit, even though we were stuck there for a couple hours. I will admit that it was pretty scary because so many vehicles were totaled, people were rushed to the hospital and a car even caught on fire.

The Denver police and fire departments did a great job making sure everyone was safe, but it was nerve wracking to think that this could happen to anyone during the winter. That is why I highly recommend renting an SUV or truck during your time in Colorado.

Hotel Teatro in Denver during Winter:

Hotel Teatro in Denver during winter

­­­­One of my top experiences during my time in Denver, Colorado was staying at Hotel Teatro, located in the LoDo area of the city.

I was absolutely impressed and loved how spacious, clean and beautiful my Deluxe Corner King Room was. I had views of the city and nearby Rocky Mountains. Plus, I received the best night’s rest during my entire trip in their cozy Simmons Beautyrest Black™ mattress (of course after watching Hallmark Christmas movies).

The lobby of Hotel Teatro in Denver

The building that Hotel Teatro is located in goes back to 1863 when Denver’s Governor Evans built a brick cottage for his family in the downtown area.

The Evans family continued their quest to build up Denver in the years following that. In 1911, two architects set out to design an 8-story office tower for the Denver Tramway Company. The design combined modern construction and a traditional Renaissance Revival-style architecture of glazed red brick and white terra cotta.

The first-floor lobby led to the offices of the Treasurer and Train Master, while physicians and a legal department occupied the second floor. The eighth floor was inhabited by the president, whose boardroom was lined with oak and marble.

The Denver Tramway trolleys were in service until 1950 and were later used by the University of Colorado at Denver. The Tramway Building was purchased by the Tramway Hotel, LLC in 1994 and in 1999 it became the 110-room Hotel Teatro.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Hotel Teatro was recently voted the No. 3 Best Hotel in Colorado in Conde Nast Traveler’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards.

Hotel TeatroDenver’s original boutique hotel, is located in a modern Renaissance Revival building and it provides its guests with a memorable experience in the mile-high city.

Welcome gifts at Hotel Teatro in Denver

When I checked into my room, I was greeted with a bottle of Champagne, chocolates, a leather notepad and a lovely note from the hotel. It was absolutely wonderful feeling so welcomed at this beautiful hotel.

Inside of my Deluxe Corner King Room was a king-sized bed, pull-out couch, coffee table with two chairs, desk, 50” LCD television, Keurig in-room coffee maker, safe, plush terry robes and more.

I absolutely LOVED the bathroom as it offered two sinks, a rain shower, deep soaking bathtub and a lot of space. Plus, I loved the marble floors and lighting!

In addition to the Deluxe Corner King Room, Hotel Teatro also has a Superior Queen Room, Superior King Room, Superior Queen Room with a Balcony, Deluxe Two Queen Room, Petite Queen Room, Petite King Room, Petite Manhattan Room, Junior Suite and the Chancellor’s Suite.

A woman enjoying her time at Hotel Teatro in Denver during winter

Another reason why I loved staying at Hotel Teatro was that it was located in a prime spot.

It is easily walkable to city hotspots such as the Denver Center for Performing Arts, the Colorado Convention Center, Union Station, Larimer Square and professional sports and entertainment venues such as Coors Field (where the Colorado Rockies play) as well as the Pepsi Center (where the Denver Nuggets play).

Inside of Hotel Teatro in Denver

You also do not need to leave the hotel to have a wonderful experience in Denver!

Hotel Teatro offers a lovely restaurant called The Nickel, which offers exquisite dining and there is also a wonderful bar too called The Barrel Bar.

The reason why Hotel Teatro’s restaurant is called The Nickel is because in the early 1900s, people in Denver would take the streetcars for just a nickel per ride.

The Nickel at Hotel Teatro in Denver

The restaurant offers a seasonal menu with locally sourced ingredients, house barrel-aged spirits, a coffee roasting program and the original vault that once collected the nickel fare from streetcar passengers.

In 2019, The Nickel was named Best Hotel Restaurant in Colorado. After a beautiful day in the mountains, it was nice to come back to Hotel Teatro and grab a drink at The Nickel! (Plus, it was beautifully decorated for Christmas.)

In addition to The Nickel, Hotel Teatro also has The Study, which is a warm and cozy gathering space that hosts breakfasts on Monday to Friday from 6:30am to 11:00am.

It is a beautiful space with stunning decorations, a fireplace, comfortable couches and chairs, plus more. I enjoyed breakfast in The Study on my last morning in Denver and it was the icing on top of the cake with the snow softly falling outside.

The gym at Hotel Teatro in Denver

Other great amenities that Hotel Teatro offers is complimentary WiFi throughout the entire property; same day laundry and dry cleaning services on Monday through Saturday; it is pet friendly; offers a 24-hour fitness center for those looking to work out on their trip; cruiser bicycles that you can ride around Denver on a first come, first serve basis; valet car service; courtesy transportation service within a 2.5-mile radius (this is super convenient when you want to go out at night or even in the cold); 24-hour in-room dining service; in-room spa and massage services and EVBox Electric Vehicle Charging Stations.  

The Study at Hotel Teatro in Denver during winter

Overall, I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Teatro and recommend it as the leading boutique hotel in Denver, Colorado! It is extra special staying here during a Denver winter.

Below, discover the top 10 things to do in Denver during the winter from where to eat and drink to outdoor adventures.

Visit Union Station:

Union Station in Denver during winter

The very first place we visited when we got to Denver was the historic Union Station.

Not only is Union Station Denver’s primary train station, it is also known as Denver’s “Living Room” for dining, drinking and shopping.

Union Station in Denver during Christmas

Since we visited Denver during winter in late November, there was a beautiful Christmas tree with festive decorations surrounding the Great Hall.

This wonderful space is perfect if you are looking to grab a coffee and catch up with a friend, get work done and relax.

This station pays homage to a pioneer spirit while embracing modernity.

A breakfast burrito at Snooze in Union Station, Denver

During our time at Union Station, we grabbed breakfast at Snooze an A.M. Eatery. I had a breakfast burrito and enjoyed a candy cane boozy hot chocolate on the side.

Snooze is a chain restaurant that is based in Arizona, California, Colorado, Texas, North Carolina, Georgia and Missouri.

Stroll through Larimer Square:

You can’t visit Denver and not stroll through the city’s oldest and dreamiest street.

Located a few blocks from Hotel Teatro is the lit-up block that consist of independent shops, high-end restaurants, cozy bars as well as wellness and beauty services.

A woman standing in Larimer Square at night during winter

Not only is Larimer Square lit up during the holidays, it also has its stringed lights hanging all year round. I visited Larimer Square both during the day and also at night and it was so beautiful. This spot is extra special during Denver’s winter.

Enjoy Local Food and Drinks in Denver:

A Tulum-inspired restaurant in Denver

There is no surprise that I love exploring the foodie scene when I travel. I also like going out for drinks at swanky bars where I could enjoy the ambiance as well.

Below are a list of places I ate and drank at during my time in Denver:

A restaurant decorated for Christmas in Denver

The Kitchen American Bistro: Located right off of Larimer Square in LoDo is The Kitchen, a locally sourced restaurant that provides sustainable meals for guests.

Kristy, Hannah and I came here for some wine during our first day walking around Denver. It was a trendy and cozy spot that was decorated beautifully for Christmas.

Beatrice and Woodsley: If you are looking for a Tulum vibe in Denver, Beatrice and Woodsley is definitely the place to go near Washington Park!

We had a tapas dinner at this dreamy spot our first night and I will have to admit that the drinks are better than the food, but I definitely loved the vibe!

During our time at Beatrice and Woodsley, I enjoyed a glass of wine with gnocchi and fried escargot.

Pad Thai from Linger in Denver, Colorado

Linger: For those who love Asian food, I recommend going to Linger when you are in Denver! It was definitely one of the top restaurants we visited during our time in Colorado!

Located in an old mortuary in the Highland neighborhood, Linger is a chic lounge that also offers a rooftop. During our time here, I enjoyed wine with pad Thai and a Korean fried chicken bao bun. It was delicious!

Little Man Ice Cream in Denver, Colorado

Little Man Ice Cream: Also located in the Highland neighborhood of Denver is Little Man Ice Cream.

Now, I knew about this ice cream shop way before I came to Denver thanks to Instagram, so I was excited that we showed up there since it was near Linger.

Inspired by vintage Coney Island hot dog-shaped stands, Little Man Ice Cream is conducted within a 28-foot tall, 14,000 lb. ice cream can. Here, you could enjoy numerous flavors of homemade ice cream, plus more!

In addition, during Denver’s winter, Little Man Ice Cream also has a mini Christmas tree stand right next to it. I loved enjoying my hot chocolate-flavored cone with all of the pretty trees surrounding me.

Avanti in Denver

Avanti Food and Beverage: One of the best places to have fun in Denver is Avanti, also located in Highland.

With two large bars, a lounge and dining area as well as a rooftop deck, Avanti offers something for everyone. There is even a Christmas pop-up bar located at Avanti as well!

During our time here, we just grabbed a beer and enjoyed the rooftop. (Denver is known for great craft beer.) Even though it was colder outside, there were heated lamps surrounding us.

In addition to craft beer, you could also grab French-inspired street food, pizza, Asian food, poke, Venezuelan cuisine, Mexican food, rotisserie and more at Avanti.

A pasta dish from Rioja in Denver, Colorado

Rioja: The absolute BEST restaurant we visited during our time in Denver was Rioja – an award-winning Mediterranean restaurant located on Larimer Street.

We visited Rioja on our last night, which just so happened to be during a snowstorm. It was a short walk from Hotel Teatro, which was super convenient.

From the moment we entered Rioja, we knew we would be in for a great experience! The vibe of Rioja was absolutely comforting and swanky, the staff were super energetic and friendly and the food was amazing.

We both got wine and I enjoyed squid ink tagliatelle pasta with clams and sausage in a white wine sauce. It was incredible! After we were done with dinner, they gave us sugar coated mint leaves.

Walk Around the Beauty at the Denver Botanical Gardens:

Flowers from the Denver Botanical Garden

Whenever I visit a new U.S. city, I always enjoy visiting the botanical gardens. Every city does a wonderful plant display and I never walk away disappointed.

The Denver Botanical Gardens offer living, natural history, library and art collections to admire. During the holiday season, there are also beautiful Christmas light displays as well!

Get into the Holiday Spirit at the Christmas Markets and Ice-Skating Rink:

Denver's Christmas Market

One thing I did not expect to see in Denver was a German Christkindlmarket.

Now, it may not be like the Christmas markets in Europe, but it is definitely a cute place to visit during Christmastime.

Christkindlmarkt in Denver, Colorado during winter

This annual Christkindlmarkt brings German holiday traditions to Denver and it allows locals and visitors to enjoy glühwein (mulled wine), Bavarian-style biers and food, European coffee or hot chocolate. There are charming wooden huts with Christmas lights that sell artisan gifts, holiday treats and even CBD. (When in Colorado right?)

In addition to the Christmas markets, Denver also has a downtown ice-skating rink at Skyline Park. It is the perfect place to go in Denver if you are looking for a fun activity during winter.  

Admire the Talent at Denver Art Museum:

Denver Art Museum

If you are someone who appreciates art and enjoys going to museums, then you definitely have to visit the Denver Art Museum, which is located in the Civic Center.

Known as one of the largest art museums out west, you could walk through the Claude Monet, the Anthony McCall Eyes On, the British Art, the Shantell Martin and The Light Show exhibitions at the Denver Art Museum.

Tour the Colorado State Capitol:

Colorado state capital

After walking through the Denver Art Museum, I recommend walking through Capitol City Park and admiring the beautiful Colorado State Capitol. Throughout the day, you could book a tour and get a U.S. history lesson about the “Centennial State”.

Watch a Denver Ball Game:

Coors Field in Denver

Just like many other U.S. cities, Denver also has renowned sports teams. You could catch the Denver Broncos playing football at Sports Authority Field at Mile High; the Colorado Rockies play baseball downtown at Coors Field; NBA’s Denver Nuggets play basketball at the Pepsi Center in downtown and many more!

See a Concert at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater:

Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater during Denver's winter

One of the top things you need to do in Denver is visit the Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater located a little outside of the heart of the city.

This open-air amphitheater is built into a rock structure where you could catch a concert, watch the stars, go on a hike, shop, do a tour, bike and so much more!

Seeing snow on the red rocks during Denver’s winter is extra special!

Do a Day Trip during Denver’s Winter:

Three women at Garden of the Gods in Colorado

There are unlimited day trips you could take from Denver during the winter. Below are some top recommendations:

  8. cosette on December 12, 2020 at 1:22 pm

    Denver in winter time looks wonderful. We visited Denver in the Summer and did a trip tp Pikes Peak and went on towards Rocky Mountain National Park. I loved the area.

    • Taylor Deer on December 12, 2020 at 8:22 pm

      Colorado is beautiful all year long. I want to go back and go skiing. 🙂

  9. Courtney on December 15, 2020 at 2:55 pm

    This is such a great list! I live in Denver and you really touched on a ton of great places that I normally suggest to visitors.
    Also, I about died when you mentioned people boarding the plane with yoga mats! I originally moved here from Florida and was blown away at first by how normal it is for people for wear pieces of workout gear as a normal attire EVERYWHERE here. Mall; workout clothes, out to dinner; workout clothes, grocery shopping; workout clothes, park day; workout clothes. It’s so funny when you’re not used to it.

    • Taylor Deer on December 16, 2020 at 10:10 pm

      Thank you so much Courtney! It was a fun city and I’d love to go back and explore more in the surrounding area. Also yes, I find it awesome how athletic and active people are there. All cities should be like that. 🙂

  10. Kylie on January 2, 2021 at 2:42 am

    How beautiful!! I’ve heard Colorado is such an incredible state, especially during winter!! Can’t wait to visit someday!

    • Taylor Deer on January 2, 2021 at 10:18 am

      Yes, it is so stunning! You totally have to go. It’s a great state. 🙂

  11. Catherine on January 2, 2021 at 1:18 pm

    I’ve never actually been to Denver (YET) but love the idea of so many sunny, clear days there – even in the winter. This post about winter travel to Denver, CO is so informative and detailed. I’d definitely want to explore the capitol building – it looks beautiful.

    • Taylor Deer on January 2, 2021 at 5:48 pm

      It’s such a great city! I love anywhere that has a lot of sun. 🙂

  12. Megan on January 2, 2021 at 1:51 pm

    What a great post! You really got around to see it all in Denver. I’ll have to check out the Teatro, it looks so charming!

    • Taylor Deer on January 2, 2021 at 5:49 pm

      Thank you Megan! Hotel Teatro was a really cool hotel. I definitely enjoyed staying there. 🙂

  13. Ashlee Fechino on January 2, 2021 at 2:00 pm

    Awww, fun post on Denver in the winter! It is a fun city to visit. We used to live in Grand Junction and Breckenridge 🙂

    • Taylor Deer on January 2, 2021 at 5:50 pm

  14. molly on January 2, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    Denver in the winter is the best! It could snow or be 50 and sunny! I love it! Washington Park is a favorite!

    • Taylor Deer on January 2, 2021 at 8:31 pm

      Yes, I love that! The sunshine is definitely a seller for me. 🙂

  15. Emma on January 2, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    Some great ideas. I’ve only been to Denver in the summer months when it’s been hot so this looks like a totally different experience. What a great city, and I love the look of the Hotel Teatro

    • Taylor Deer on January 2, 2021 at 8:32 pm

      Thank you Emma! Hotel Teatro was definitely one of the highlights during my time in Denver. 🙂

  16. Dhara on January 2, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    We lived in Colorado for a few years and I love Denver! Love this list of things to do in the Mile High City. We’ve only visited Rocky Mountain NP in the summer, but I am sure it is amazing in the winter too.

    • Taylor Deer on January 3, 2021 at 7:53 pm

      It is a lot of fun and Rocky Mountain National Park really is gorgeous year round. I hope to revisit again soon. 🙂

  17. Shelley on January 2, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    I really like Denver, though I’ve never been in the winter. I’ll have to consider a Denver winter trip now, after seeing this blog. It looks quite magical, and OMG that pasta dish from Rioja looks amazinggggg.

    • Taylor Deer on January 3, 2021 at 7:54 pm

      Yes, Colorado in the winter is so fun! I really want to go back and do a ski trip at some point. 🙂 Also, that meal I had at Rioja was one of the best dishes I’ve had during my travels.

  18. Amanda on January 2, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    I love Denver! Been a handful of times but I don’t know that I’ve ever been in Winter, so this is a super cute intro into what to expect. 🙂

    • Taylor Deer on January 3, 2021 at 7:55 pm

      Yes, there are a lot of fun things to do. Colorado was very beautiful in general in the winter. 🙂

  19. Kitti on January 3, 2021 at 3:46 am

    I need to get back to America as soon as it’s safe to do so. Denver looked stunning in winter, and I love your hiking outfit.

    • Taylor Deer on January 3, 2021 at 7:55 pm

      Yes, you totally have to. There is so much adventure here. 🙂

  20. Charlotte on January 3, 2021 at 8:16 am

      Thank you Charlotte and it was a lot of fun. 🙂

  21. Ildiko on January 3, 2021 at 9:16 am

    Denver is very cool.! I was there during the winter, the week before Christmas….passing through to Breckenridge. I did visit a couple of restaurants and the Denver Art Museum. Was very impressed with the city and would love to go back.

    • Taylor Deer on January 3, 2021 at 7:58 pm

      That sounds awesome! I heard Breckenridge is really cool too! 🙂

  22. Coni on January 3, 2021 at 6:05 pm

    Nature always looks stunning in wintertime, but it surprises me when cities also do, and Denver definitely does. Lovely pictures!

    • Taylor Deer on January 3, 2021 at 7:59 pm

      Thank you Coni! It really was a nice time. 🙂

  23. Francesca on January 4, 2021 at 12:04 pm

    • Taylor Deer on January 4, 2021 at 10:33 pm

      Yes, you totally should. I also would love to go back to that area and actually explore Boulder too. I heard there are a lot of great breweries there. 🙂
