Our Critics' Picks

Even though the Colorado Rockies have never won a World Series, catching an evening game at Coors Field – the great ballpark on the edge of downtown Denver that opened in 1995 -- is something every Colorado resident and visitor should experience. The famous Rockpile seating section can always be counted on for cheap tickets (less than $10), plenty of Coors-induced rowdy fans. The stunning views of both the mountains and downtown should keep your eyes diverted from the scoreboard; a walk around the concourse, with its many food and beverage vendors, is always amusing. Weddings, holiday parties and corporate meetings can all be arranged at the field. And if you’re lucky, the Sand Lot brewpub on Blake Street will be open, giving you a real taste of two of our favorite pastimes: beer and baseball.
