Downtown Denver Past and Present Walking Tour
*Hosted by the Denver Architecture Foundation 

About the tour: The city of Denver was founded for gold, its rough-and-tumble beginnings near Cherry Creek not always that promising. Perseverance and a less focused mindset would bring the city seemingly miraculous growth by the end of the 1800s. Sadly, much of that early city would be lost in the mid-1900s, and today, we're reimagining and reenergizing all of it, whether old or new. Join us for a look at the history and the modern expression of Denver. No cowboy boots needed.

About the tour guide: Kevin Snow originally marched to good grammar and punctuation. Marrying into history, he learned through exposure. Later, he saw a great need — a great need for fascinating and enriching tours given in impeccable good grammar, pronunciation and inclusion of words like prelapsarian and sedulous. Kevin's goal is not to travel with clients, but to travel with friends. Dedicated, attentive and occasionally irreverent, Kevin is our experience worth having.

Union Station Walking Tour
*Hosted by the Denver Architecture Foundation 

About the tour: Please join Annie Levinsky, Chief of Staff at History Colorado and former Executive Director of Historic Denver, to learn the storied history of Denver’s iconic Union Station, among the most storied buildings in the western United States. This walking tour will describe the importance of the building to the railroad and mining industries in the late 19th century, and its different building phases and architectural styles. We will also learn about the deterioration that occurred after rail travel declined, and the remarkable restoration and revitalization by placemaker Dana Crawford’s coalition of architects, hospitality professionals, construction firms, and retail operators, who undertook a $38-million-dollar revitalization in 2014. Ten years later, the beautiful structure stands proudly in its architectural glory, well adapted in its uses for today’s travelers, residents, and tourists including the stunning Great Hall, the Crawford Hotel, the Cooper Lounge, and more.
