Travel Guide: Denver

Some people have been asking me for more information about what I did in Denver so I thought I would compile a list of some Denver highlights just in case other White Cabana readers are heading that way.

1. Denver Art Museum : A great selection of American Indian art, very family friendly, and architecturally interesting.

2. Corner Bakery Cafe : The traditional Swiss oatmeal was a perfect breakfast for me and it reminded me of Switzerland. Truly.

3. The Market : A friendly, open-concept restaurant on Larimer. So much selection. I went with a capicola sandwich while I was there.

4. TAG:¬†Continental Social : ¬†Such a delightful little restaurant. Had a yummy meal during happy hour…a friend and I ordered the full menu and shared. Perfectly delightful!

5. Tattered Cover Book Store : I could have spent hours, if not days, here. So comfortable and warm. Not to mention Рa great selection of new and used books.

6. The Cruise Room Bar at the Oxford Hotel : Chatted with friendly bartenders at this Art Deco bar. Ordered the La La Cosmo. Delish!

7. Bookend Cafe in Boulder, Colorado : A friend and I stopped in here for a treat. Love the feel of this cozy cafe.

8. Cherry Creek Mall : I hate to admit that I spent some time indoors while I was in Denver but this mall was quite amusing. I had a fun time at Tiffany & Co., Anthropologie and Martin + Osa. And my made-by-me yogurt at Cherry on Top was delicious. Bus number 83L gets you there from the downtown Civic Center station in about 15 minutes.

9. Colorado Convention Center : All in white. So bright and airy. The blue bear is kind of cool too.

10. Cheesecake Factory : I know it’s a chain. But the cheesecake is oh. so. good. I enjoyed a piece of the original cheesecake with fresh strawberries on the side. Yum!

Paris: Institut du Monde Arabe

On my last trip to Paris, I went to the Institut du Monde Arabe for the very first time. What a sight for the eyes! The architecture is intricate and so geometric.

How many squares do you see?

From the inside out.

The outside of the building is gorgeous and from the cafe terrace one has a beautiful view of the buttresses of the Notre Dame.
