Who would’ve thought that putting yourself on a tight budget might be the best thing that ever happened to your travel plans? Well, as a matter of fact, George would. In this episode, George takes us on a tour of some of Denver’s most interesting and creative places, an adventure guided by the names of Denver’s illustrious sports teams—the Broncos, Rockies, Avalanche, Nuggets and Rapids. Each of which points George in the direction of cool things to do.
First, you’ll visit Denver’s world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater. You’ll next join George as he tours the legendary Buffalo Bill Museum, including riding a fake bronco and visiting the grave of Buffalo Bill himself.
Then, guided by the name of Denver’s basketball team, the Nuggets, George visits the Arapahoe Bar Gold Panning Park, where George pans for gold and discovers what it took to be an old west prospector. Keeping up with the Nuggets’ theme, George tries Denver’s famed Fool’s Gold Sandwich. A treat so good, Elvis flew to Denver in 1976 just to get one, and this is a guy who knew his way around a sandwich.
From there, as an homage to Denver’s hockey team, the Colorado Avalanche, George takes us to the Snobahn Indoor Skiing Center, where he races down a slope in what turns out to be his most fun ski trip ever.
Finally, inspired by Denver’s baseball team, the Rockies, George visits the famous Buckhorn Exchange Steakhouse where he tries the delicacy Rocky Mountain Oysters, which turns out to be surprisingly delicious. (We’ll let you discover that one for yourself.) All that’s just some of the unexpected Denver you’ll experience with George. Turns out that limiting yourself to $100 can get you an adventure even Buffalo Bill would envy.
