If you were a horse in Downtown Denver serving in the Mounted Patrol, the lively voices and noises of the city would be music in your ears.  Your job is to make sure that Downtown Denver remains one of the safest neighborhoods in the city and county of Denver.  If you like people, maybe you could pull a carriage full of them around the central business district, giving the grand tour of the hidden treasures around every corner of Denver.  You would be sure to show off the eleven distinct Downtown Denver neighborhoods, the South Platte River and Cherry Creek, and the marvelous attractions within walking distance. 

“Clop-clop” down the streets of Auraria Campus, Ballpark, Capitol Hill, Central Business District, Central Platte Valley, Curtis Park, Five Points, Golden Triangle, Highland, Jefferson Park, LaAlma/Lincoln Park, Lower Downtown, and Uptown!  The architecture of varied cultures, the great food and hangouts are obvious.  Just ask about the affordable lofts and condos with mere flowerboxes to water or the quaint early 1900s homes on tree-lined streets with plenty to mow. 

The wealth of interesting places makes it fun for residents, second-home buyers and visitors who stay.  From top-notch performing arts to museums and art galleries to sporting events, great mall shopping and tours—the Mile High City does not horse around.  But it does have a bit of flavor!  Downtown is always new, always changing and improving.

Art.  Galleries of all shapes and sizes are tucked into the streetscape and sometimes the alleyways.  The Art District on Santa Fe is a multicultural neighborhood featuring the largest concentration of art galleries and art walks every couple of weeks.  Some galleries feature photography, some vintage shots.  For a hands-on experience, try Ceramics in the City and paint-your-own pottery or mosaic.  Some galleries such as the Howard Lorton offer fine furniture and home accessories; several downtown antique shops happily present the handcrafted goods from yesteryear.  The New Denver Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art with fantastic traveling exihibitions are a must.

Attractions.  Go for the Denver Botanical Gardens, Museums of Nature and Science, the IMAX Theater, Gates Planetarium, the Denver Zoo, Downtown Aquarium, and Six Flags Elitch Gardens.

Comedy.  Be sure to stop by the Bovine Metropolis Theater and Impulse Theater to find out what everyone is laughing about.

Concerts.  The Colorado Symphony Orchestra, Paramount Theatre, Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret, the Pepsi Center and the Denver Public Library host concerts year round.

Dance.  Cleo Robinson Dance, the Colorado Ballet and mid-1900s dance classes at Mercury Café will keep the rhythm going.

Film/Lectures/Education.  The Denver Public Library hosts a DVD club along with wonderful lectures and performances.

Museums.  Take your time browsing through the Byers-Evans House Museum, the Children’s Museum, the Colorado Historical Museum, the Denver Firefighters Museum, and the Molly Brown House.

Sports.  Who are you cheering for?  The Colorado Avalanche, Rapids, Rockies, Mammoth, Crush or the Denver Broncos and Nuggets?  Or all of the above?

Tours.  There are guided tours of the Denver Botanic Gardens, INVESCO Field, Brown Place, the Colorado State Capitol, LoDo Walking Tours and LoDo Historic Tours, the Denver Performing Arts Center and the U.S. Mint.

And as a horse, of course, if you like to get all prettied up, just nudge a youngster and let him know that you are just waiting for 4-H to start.  Or maybe you’d like to march to the music in a downtown parade.  Oh, the life of a horse couldn’t be better!
