If you think living in Denver is ordinary, think again. Plenty of oddities abound in this former mining encampment established in 1858 on the banks of the Cherry Creek and the South Platte. Come with me to delve into the past with a focus on the people who make this city what it is today. We will, of course, begin with the Native Americans, before talking about the influx of miners, cowboys, and cattle ranchers but also jazz legends and Beat poets, railroad barons, activists and craft brewers. We will also explore present-day Denver and some of its best and most unusual locales. Come and learn about wondrous, scary, or just downright odd stories, as well as offbeat places and things to do. It is time to explore new places, including some you may have heard of but might not know the full story. Travel writer and fifth generation Coloradoan Bruce Caughey has uncovered some great places in Denver and beyond while living here and researching his book: "The Colorado Guide". He will be your guide as we share insights and formulate a new way to look at our not-so-ordinary home.
