1. The Western Heritage is vibrant in Denver. You can still see cows walking through downtown.
This is only true one day a year — during the annual National Western Stock Show kick-off parade. The other 364 days you are more likely to see a Vespa, a unicycle, or a segue than you are a cow. It is still possible to ride with your sweetheart under the flickering snow in a horse-drawn carriage, but be prepared to be the target of some friendly snickering and finger pointing by the locals.
