An Afternoon In Denver at Union Station

An afternoon in Denver - hanging out at Union Station!

Last week we dropped a friend off at the Denver airport and had an afternoon to wander around Denver. Union Station has been on my Denver to-do list for some time now. Partly because of the wonderful history (I’m a sucker for historical adventures) and the rest because I knew it was a cute, hip place with food! We found ourselves instantly mesmerized with the big windows flooding the room with natural light, the gold, the flowers, and all the history.

The first thing to do was explore – we made our way through the halls, past all the restaurants & shops, and around the building. We watched travelers come & go, looked up tickets to San Francisco after we saw that one train was heading there, and also looked up the hotel (because you can stay there?!!?) We grabbed ice cream at Milk Box (and it was creamy & delicious) and regretted that we were not there during eating hours because there were so many fun places to eat. We watched kids play in fountains, talked about city life (and regular life), and played around with Snapchat (because we just learned how to use it! haha) We also read every sign around that talked about the history! #nerds.

If you find yourself in Denver for the afternoon, you might just want to pull up google maps and make your way to Union Station! It is such a gun little gem in Denver. Pretty sure I’m going to make my husband take me back – for dinner. and maybe also the hotel too! haha!

  • Beautiful pictures! I was there last spring but it was in the evening after some of their little shops were closed. We just sat out in the main area & had a few drinks so it’s neat to see what it looks like in the day time!

    • Oak & Oats

      Oh fun! Yes, I am sure it is very different in the evening – possibly more crowded too with all the bars and restaurants! It is so light and airy during the day!

      I know right?! And it just sits there beautifully in the middle!

  • I’ve wanted to go so bad. When I moved to Denver it’s one of the first places I went, but it was closed for construction. Didn’t open till it was harder for me to get out and do things.

    I miss Denver A LOT.

    • Oak & Oats

      Yeah! I know they were reworking it for awhile! Dever is so fun! I don’t mind not living there but it is fun to visit!!

  • I love the signage! This looks like a place I definitely need to visit. 🙂

    • Oak & Oats

      Oh girl! It is definitely a fun place!
