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.

Catch ya on the street next time!
