Denver District
Want to experience the hippest places Denver has to offer after presentations at NFPA’s 2011 Backyards & Beyond Wildfire Education Conference?  Then head over to the Lower Downtown Historic District, also known as the LoDo District by locals. 

The LoDo District is one of Denver’s most unique neighborhoods combining history, culture, and retail.  Take a walking tour of the 25 square block area to learn about the history of Denver’s birthplace and some of Denver’s most beautifully preserved buildings.  You won’t believe how well the district’s saloons and brothels have stood the test of time.  If grabbing a few drinks with friends is on the agenda, the LoDo District has over 90 brewpubs, sports bars, restaurants and rooftop cafés to choose from.  Groove to some jazz at El Chapultpec, named one of Esquire Magazine’s 50 best bars, or enjoy a handmade beer at the Wynkoop Brewing Company, Denver’s first brewpub.  Of course, conference attendees can’t learn about wildfire without looking snazzy, so be sure to browse around the fashionable Larimer Square, located between 14th and 15th street.  There’s never a shortage of fun things to do in the LoDo District – it’s the perfect destination for a night out with friends or colleagues!
