3 Day Food Scene Itinerary For a Weekend in Denver, Colorado | The Traveling Quirk

The Traveling Quirk | Quirky, Brown Love
As much as I love going on vacation, there is nothing more that I hate than being hungry and not knowing where to eat. Matt and I are the most indecisive couple when it comes to choosing what and where to eat. Before I took him on a surprise trip to Denver, Colorado, I literally spent weeks figuring out the best places to eat in the city. Denver is a foodie's paradise so there was no way that I could conquer all that Denver has to eat on this list. If you decide to book it to Denver for the weekend like we did, feel free to use our 3 day food scene itinerary below that is based on cost efficiency, variety, unique food and a little bit of splurging (we can all live a little!).
