Coors Field, Denver’s LoDo district demolish expectations

Earlier this year, my girlfriend and I decided on a quick weekend jaunt to Denver, another in a long list of stops in my quest to watch a game at every Major League Baseball park. What I didn’t expect was to discover the coolest city in America. And it’s not just because they have a ...
