Touring Denver: Union Station!

Thursday, April 2, 2015

This past weekend, Denver graced us with 80 degree weather. Blue skies, bright sun and cold beer was on tap for our Saturday. Because it was so nice, Adam and I decided to explore Denver a little bit and we headed down to Union Station. If you live in Denver and haven't been, or are visiting Denver, you must go. Union Station still has its original purpose, used as a station for Amtrack, but now it's been upgraded and has a hotel, tons of restaurants, bars, bookstores and the cutest flower shop. We spent the afternoon wandering around, looking in shops, sipping beer and enjoying our blast from the past.
Our first stop was at the Terminal Bar to get some of that cold beer I was talking about. It felt like we stepped back into time as we chatted with the bartender, sipped our beer and watched people venture in and out of Union Station. The Terminal Bar doesn't have food, but it offers the menu from Acme Burger and Brat. Just do it, order everything.
Isn't that lit up sign incredible? 
The adorable flower shop. 

We spent about 2 hours wandering Union Station and soaking in all the sounds, smell and beer it had to offer. Next time, we're going to eat brunch at Snooze. We've been to the Snooze in downtown, but I cannot wait to sit outside Union Station sipping mimosas and eating eggs Benedict next time!
And make sure, the next time you're in Denver, you go to Union Station. It's worth all the time and energy it takes to park downtown :) I hope you fall in love with this city like I have.
