Photos: Ten weird Denver-area places -- an alternative tour

The TBEX North America conference, billed as the world's largest travel blogger convention, kicks off today at Keystone Resort, and VISIT DENVER's Rich Grant has a big role in showing off the area. But which local landmarks would he prefer the writers skip? We asked, and he (unwisely?) made a suggestion we've included on our own top ten list of places they should check out to get a sense of Denver's quirky side. Count them down below.
