A story in The New York Times
travel section features Denver as one of the cities in its 36 Hours series -- a collection of stories that highlights what to do in a city when you've only got a weekend.
A video about Denver highlights restaurants such as Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs
at The Source
, as well as the 28-foot-tall Little Man Ice Cream
milk can. It also showcases Great Divide
breweries, as well as the Mayan Theatre
, one of the three Art Deco theaters remaining in the country.
"We call it a city with benefits," developer Paul Tamburello says in the video.
The story, complete with a map describing various restaurants and attractions, provides a Friday through Sunday itinerary that includes the Art District on Santa Fe
, South Broadway boutiques, The Crawford Hotel
at Denver Union Station
and a variety of restaurants scattered throughout the city.
"And there are the inconspicuous marijuana dispensaries that dot nearly every neighborhood, and more stunning public spaces -- from Washington Park to the Cherry Creek bike path -- than one city has a right to," Times
reporter Freda Moon writes.
Other cities the Times
has featured include Memphis, Santa Fe, Seattle, Naples, Fla., and Berkeley, Calif.
