Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Super fun and informative! The tour was great and we learned a lot about the distillery’s process. I’m not even a whiskey fan, but I had a great time and my bf loved their whiskey samples.

    We took the guided tour. It was great. The guide was very informative. We not only learned the history the house in Denver,but also her history from when she first came to Colorado.

    Amazing - well documented variety of transportation. This museum has diecast collections and bicycles to motorcycles, tractors, cars, delivery vehicles, fire trucks, railroad engines and airplanes. It was a real treat to walk through and see all the different means of transportation.

    I went to see the Frank Lloyd Wright exbibit. It was well worth the visit, and I found the permanent collection rooms equally interesting. The collection is well-curated and the building is architectually interesting. The staff were pleasant and helpful.

    Worth your time! Such a wonderful experience. Right near Coors Field and some great sport bars to eat at.

    The museum was very impressive with two centuries of art to modern painting. There are three floors of works of the old west.
    The museum is very good for the handicap or senior citizens. Elevators for all floors.
    Very old building located in the heart of Denver.
    A must stop if you are in the area.

    Balistreri Vineyards is a hidden gem north of Denver in the middle of the industrial area. It is a gorgeous venue. It is used for weddings and other events. It also does wine tastings (they make their own wines) and is open for lunch as well. It is open to the public from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily. The executive chef is fantastic and the wait staff is professional. The lunch menu changes with the seasons and sources much of its produce locally even growing some of their own. Our choices this time were: house-made ciabatta and bacon-wrapped dates and the antipasti for starters. All were wonderful. We followed that with delicious small plates fried Brussels sprouts and house-made whipped ricotta. Then some of us had the beet salad (amazing), the preserved lemon gnocchi and the butternut squash risotto. One of our party has a dietary restriction so Chef Sumichrast went off menu for him. Fantastic! The kids (ages 11, 9 and 7) had the kids' butter noodles and fruit cup but they all had had plenty of the appetizers and small plates, too. The kids were impressed. We spent three hours at table. (We let the kids go out in the grassy area between courses and that was fine with the staff.) The entire afternoon was magical. If you are looking for a long Sunday lunch for foodies and family, this is it. Magnifique! We did try the wines doing the featured wine flights. My favorite was the Petit Verdot.

    I've been to this museum before for a child's birthday party (it was great for that!) and brought my visiting brother's family back when we were exploring the town. It was interesting and fun and it doesn't take too too long. There is a good gift shop and firetruck on which kids can dress up and play.

    Stem Ciders is a nice place. My husband and I tried the fruit ciders. I have had better they were pretty bitter more like beer/ipa taste. It has a nice patio and indoor seating. There are board games to use as well. The inside is cooler. The part of the city it’s nearby has a cool vibe.

    We pulled off the freeway and parked in the lot on the left facing the Buffalo (Bison) Overlook. There were no bison at the time near the parking area, but we did see the bison up above in the trees (maybe 500 to 1,000 feet away). We did not do any trails in the park, but we did drive from this area to Lookout Mountain which has Wild Bill Cody's grave and a great view of Golden, CO and Denver (if it is clear).

    Small brewery and a bit off the main road. However, bartenders were friendly and it wasn’t too crowded. Really enjoyed their Mexican lager with prickly pear cactus and lime. I like to try lots of different beers and hadn’t seen anything like it!

    We had a blast! The story was creative and unexpected. There were hidden panels and…well, I’d better not give it away. 😉 Ando was awesome! She was so helpful and made the storyline a lot of fun. My son (15) wanted to go back the next day and try another room. The price for a private room was excellent! Definitely recommend!!

    So much fun! Very nice axe throwing facility. Our coach spent a lot of time with us showing us techniques and critiquing our throws. He taught us different games we could play and we had a blast! They had a nice selection of beer and the space was clean and large. Highly recommend!

    Myself and my 3 kids (14,12,9) have done over 30 escape rooms and this was one of our favorites. There were mini puzzles (unique to this company) as well as the room puzzles. They were just different enough that we hadn't seen them before and kept everyone thinking. Love the ambiance of the house and Lucas was super friendly! Will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone.
