Denver travel tips

1) Avoid the Highlands and the Cap Hill when riding a bike in Denver

Despite the location near mountains, Denver is pretty flat to ride a bike. The only two areas that may give bikers problems are the Highlands and the Cap Hill, with their steep slopes and hills. But generally, you can ride a bike around the city without worrying about a 30-degree incline.

2) Rent a bike in Denver and ride around Sloan Lake

Rent a bike with a bike-share program, B Cycle, in Denver. A perfect place to start your ride is Sloan Lake with its big surrounding area.

3) When walking in Denver keep your ice to the 7-meters-high dairy jug

When you see the 7-meters-high dairy jug in Denver, just know it is Little Man Ice Cream cafe. They sell cones of handcrafted ice cream, including vegan options. A classic Chunky Chocolate cone is a must.
