Girls Weekend Guide: Denver

Denver has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. It seems to fit my outdoorsy personality, so I knew it was a place I wanted to visit. Although, it was a pretty short trip, I know I will be back again to explore more. Denver proved to be a perfect weekend getaway, especially with my friends. It offers so much for you to do and it is such a fun place for a girls weekend trip.

Where to Stay: 
Stay in the Arts District because it is close to everything and it is a quirky place to be. It is close to bars, restaurants, and about a 25-30 minute drive from the airport. Rent out an Airbnb and enjoy the comfort of having a bigger place to yourself. We all know that us girls need lots of space to get ready, so when you have a bunch of girls stuck in a hotel room with only one bathroom, it makes things a lot harder. Just make sure to think of your luggage because just like a hotel the Airbnb does have certain check in and check out times, and unlike a hotel, you cannot have the front desk hold your luggage. My friends and I ran into a bit of trouble with this because it totally slipped our minds, but we totally made it work. Before check in, we just left our luggage at the brunch place we were at, and at check out we went to a hotel and asked them to hold it for a few hours, but hopefully this can be coordinated with your host instead.

Highlights from Boston

It can be hard to find things to do in a metropolitan city sometimes, especially being from Chicago where I get that kind of vibe already. But Boston had it’s own unique charm with a small city feel. The cobbled stone streets with the smaller alleys gave off a European feel to it which I adored. The city is not too big and you can get a lot done in the time being but I narrowed down some highlights for you to check out.


Charlestown and the Freedom  Trail

Charlestown is a historic waterfront neighborhood perfect for those that want to be close to Boston, but not in the hustle of it all. Make sure to go down by the marina for a picturesque view of all of Boston. Better yet, check out Pier 6, for some delicious cocktails and waterfront views.

Parts of the Freedom Trail are also located in Charlestown. The 2.5 miles trail is lined with 16 significant locations running through downtown Boston. The 1797 U.S.S. Constitution warship and its museum are in the Charlestown Navy Yard which I found was a good spot to start your trail. To ensure you stay on the trail the whole time; follow the red-lined path on the sidewalk.
