Thanks for the info and the great pics. that's one thing I like about Denver. They get a nasty or less desirable neighborhood, and they fix them up. Unlike other cities that let them sit there and become nastier and nastier.

I will definitely have to go to Curtis Park and get some shots of these awesome victorian mansions. I really love those. Reminds me of Brush park in detroit except without them being all decayed and abandoned. Job well done (again)

You are most welcome, and my offer to you still stands to show you around if I am not on a business trip. When are you coming here? I think what has really saved these homes and others in Denver is their proximity to downtown.

You are going to be very close to a few more great homes:

The house isn't weird at all, just restored to it's original state, inside and outside. The gazebo is actually the backyard porch, not the front. The owner takes great pride and tried his best to replicate everything down to the last little tea cup. Fortunate for me it was on the home tour. It is located in Curtis Park:

amazing pics once again. I'll be in town from March 22-28th. I won't be able to do any touring on the 22nd though. By the time I get to the hostel, go shopping, and unpack it will probably be around 6 or 6:30 pm. I will get a fresh start on the 23rd.

What i'm thinking about doing, is each day, I head out farther and farther away from the downtown core. I've never had a vacation by myself where I can tour anything I want so I have no clue. I have all of your (and other peoples) suggestions on what to do, and I will print them out and bring them with me. If your available, I'd still like to do the tour. That'd be great.

22nd to Tremont Place.
Tremont Place to Park Avenue West
Park Avenue West to East 20th and Clarkson.
No, I don't mean it's not safe. I was just pointing out that if you choose to walk along 22nd, you'll be fine. The route you've noted above shouldn't cause any problems - just be more cautious of your surroundings after dark.

Thanks for clarifying that. I appreciate your help with this. I feel everything should be fine. I live in a rough neighborhood in Tucson so I am not to worried about walking or staying somewhere that may not be in the greatest area.

Hey, I would check out the Santa Fe arts district as well. Sounds like you will miss first friday, but it would still be a fun area to walk around on a weekend.

Ashamed to say it but I never heard of Santa fe arts District. I looked it up and I think this is it: artdistrictonsantafe.com .

So, did you decide for sure when you are coming? What did you decide to see since I know you mentioned that your trip was cut short?
