Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Its mild climate and abundant sunshine make Denver, one of Americas fittest cities, a welcoming place for a walk any time of year. Colorados capital is the countrys fifth most walkable city. There is so much to see when out for a stroll through downtown or a hike in the nearby foothills. This exceptional guide explores the best of the city from Dinosaur Ridge and Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre to the Mile High Loop in City Park and public art scattered throughout downtown.

These 30 specially designed urban treks are not only good exercise but are a great way to soak up the history, culture, parks, and vibe of the Mile High City. The walks commentary includes trivia about architecture, local culture, and neighborhood history, plus tips on where to dine, have a drink, or shop. Each tour includes a clear neighborhood map and vital public transportation (where appropriate) and parking information. Route summaries make each walk easy to follow, and a “Points of Interest” section lists each walks highlights.

Insider Mindy Sink guides the urban adventurer from the Mile High Loop, the citys newest footpath in City Park, to the Golden Triangles cultural and architectural gems, and the ever lively Art District on Santa Fe. From the Auraria Campus (home to three universities), to the citys oldest still operating cemetery, this book reveals part of the city even seasoned locals overlook.

About the Author

Journalist Mindy Sink chooses to live in the heart of Denver where she enjoys walking to downtown, the Platte River, parks, museums, libraries and much more that the Mile High City has to offer. She is the author of Moon Denver and coauthor of Colorado Organic: Cooking Seasonally, Eating Locally.

While working as the Bureau Manager at the New York Times Rocky Mountain Bureau, Mindy walked to work downtown, but these days she prefers to explore Denver with her 5-year-old daughter and husband. “I feel as if Ive rediscovered Denver through my daughters eyes,” Mindy says. “A walk to the store is an opportunity to hear the birds sing, smell the flowers, and discuss the public art we pass.”
