Colorado in the fall, it doesn’t get much better! A few weeks ago I went up to Guanella Pass to check out all the colors, and it didn’t disappoint. From the town of Grant along U.S. Hwy. 285, head north on Guanella Pass Road to the town of Georgetown. The paved road leads you over 11,669-foot Guanella Pass with its stunning views of Mount Evans and Mount Bierstadt. Once you’ve soaked in all the scenery, stop off for a bite to eat and some local shopping in downtown Georgetown.

Ready to go? Keep in mind Colorado leaves turn at different times depending on elevation and the length of daylight, so be sure to check the Smoky Mountains website for interactive maps showing the best spots. Now lace up your hiking shoes and get ready to see some of the most beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains.

Let me know in the comments where y’all are headed or have already been!

I spent the weekend in Vail a few weeks ago, and was so struck by how beautiful it is in the summer! I had only ever been in the winter for skiing, but really shouldn’t have been surprised by how amazing it is in the summer. Lionshead District and Vail Village were packed with great restaurants and shopping. All the villages were impeccably kept, and brimming with beautiful flowers & views reminiscent of a quaint European ski town. The Vail Farmer’s Market was also incredible, hands down the best Farmer’s Market I’ve been to.

Check out this full travel guide by Marie Claire that’s chock full of the best restaurants, shops, where to stay and what to do!

Oh, beautiful Union Station! Located in the heart of downtown Denver, the stunningly restored Union Station is a destination in and of itself. Built more than 150 years ago, it wasn’t until 2012 that a collaborative development alliance sealed the deal on a multimillion-dollar renovation plan. The result, unveiled in July 2014, is a vibrant gathering place bursting with history as well as promise.

At Union Station’s center is the Great Hall, a sweeping room full of elegance and nostalgia. Glistening chandeliers and ornate, white molding emphasize the soaring, 65-foot ceilings, and enormous, arched windows flood the room with sunlight.

Above is just a small glimpse of its offerings, but here’s all what the historic building holds within:

Terminal Bar, the restored old ticket station that is now devoted to dispensing distilled-in-Colorado spirits and regional draft beers. Looking to shop? Lovely boutiques with artsy gifts and local crafts like Bloom and 5 Green Boxes; and a miniature version of Denver’s most beloved bookstore, The Tattered Cover are for you. Get your locally roasted caffeine fix at Pigtrain Coffee; or arrive early to beat the crowd at Snooze for a hearty breakfast. For lunch and dinner, Mercantile churns out some of the tastiest food I’ve ever had, while Acme has down-to-earth on the go items. Meanwhile, Stoic & Genuine has fresh oysters, classic lobster rolls and crispy whole haddock; and modern neighborhood bistro Next Door American Eatery has dishes made with ingredients that are 100 percent sourced from American farmers. Indulge your sweet tooth afterwards at Milkbox Ice Creamery, and top it off with a refreshing drink (while taking in the view from the top) at the Cooper Lounge. Stay the night at the dazzling Crawford Hotel, whose luxurious rooms give a nod to Pullman-era train travel.

Travel on your agenda? This is a train station after all! Hop on the Amtrak and choose a destination that takes you through the mountain ranges, while you relax and take in the wildlife sightings and snow-capped peaks. Or, if you’re here during ski season, take the train up to Winter Park and hit the slopes for the day all while avoiding I-70 traffic.

Hi, friends! How’s your week going? It’s finally starting to feel like spring here in Denver after all the random snow we’ve been getting throughout April. Very much ready for the warmer temps and beautiful cherry blossoms to fully pop!

Wanted to hop on here and share some photos of Congress Park neighborhood. It’s quickly turned into one of my favorite spots in Denver for its small town atmosphere. While the actual park isn’t as grandiose as the surrounding ones like Cheeseman and City Park, the neighborhood itself is quiet and picturesque, with beautiful tree-lined streets home to cute bungalows, and a delightful mix of shops, restaurants and cultural attractions — all just 3 miles from downtown.

If you’re in Denver, here’s your guide to the hood. Be sure to drop me a comment on what you think!

Guide to Congress Park:

Meet friends at TAG Burger Bar for a locally sourced burger (turkey, salmon and veggie options, too) paired with a shake or craft cocktail, or reserve a spot at 12@Madison for small plates from chef Jeff OsakaSweet Cooie’s ice cream shop is a must-stop for fresh ice cream and handmade waffle cones and confections. And Shells and Sauce has excellent Italian. 12th Avenue Market is an adorable corner shop, and Wild Flowers is the perfect place to pick up home, garden gifts and flowers. Tree-lined 7th Avenue Parkway is great for long walks or short bike rides – and you’re also within walking distance of Cheesman Park, Denver Botanic Gardens, Cherry Creek’s shops, East Colfax, neighborhood farmers markets and even a Trader Joe’s.

The color, the architecture! This, my friends, is Baker Neighborhood. Catty-corner to Wash Park and Lincoln Park, Baker has a robust historic and colorful offering that includes a Collegiate Gothic school, Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired library and quirky Arts and Crafts Bungalows. The structures were built in the Queen Anne Style and are prime examples of Victorian Architecture.

It’s also proximity to Broadway’s Main Street, which offers diverse shopping, dining and entertainment options. Definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area! I was so inspired by all the color and design.
