"Travel By Train"

ShareThis
Westward Ho the wagon train...to Denver and it's expanded and rennovated Union Station!  According to the Sunday, May1 New York Times, Denver's Union Station is its "Living Room" and is the hub hub of this dynamic city that is topping the charts in every category from fastest growing metropolis to best place to live on the continent.
 
The transition from a run down Amtrak station to a chic conglomeration of artisanl style restaurants, craft beer spots, unique shops, iconic bookstores, boutique hotel and elegant cocktail lounges in harmony with a major rail line is nearing completion.  The light rail service, known as the University of Colorado A Line, opened last week and will service travelers to and fro Denver's International Airport, DIA. Running every 15 minutes. The renovation of the 1914 vintage Union Station is accoriding to the NYTimes...impressive!

The 12,000 square foot lobby is coplete with Beaux-ARts reproduction chandeliers hung from 65 foot high ceilings all visible from The Cooper Lounge, an elegant cocktail lounge with signature cocktails and overstuffed chairs.  The reservation required lounge is the trendiest spot in the city for the expanding moving and shaking it up in the Queen city.
It is contiguous to the Crawford Hotel, 112 rooms with railroad and  vintage themes.  The Terminal Bar serves Colorado crafted beers from the original ticket windows.  Even if you are not travelling by train, plane or automobile, Union Station is a gathering place for residents and visitors.
It is located a few blocks from Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies and a few blocks the other direction from the arena for  the Colorado Avalanche and Denver Nuggets.

Did I mention that it is also located directly across the street from my office at Kentwood City Properties?  Come on down and join me for a quick lunch at the Mercantile or cocktails at the Cooper after we browse the Tattered Cover bookstore or pick up a quick posy at Bloom.  As a fourth generation true native, legacy to several Colorado Hall of Famers and overall trender of Denver, I will show you where to go, where to live and how to enjoy life at a Mile High.
