Around Castle Marne, the Wyman Historic District is lined with Victorian and post-Victorian mansions. The neighborhood borders the lawns of Denver’s City Park, which also houses the year-round Denver Zoo, a historical menagerie composed of naturalistic habitats. A 10-minute walk to the northwest reveals Denver’s lower downtown district, known as LoDo, which has formed the heart of the city since the 1850s. Today in LoDo, cheers from the Coors Field ballpark rise over blocks of grill houses, pubs, and shops.Though they reside outside the city, the mountains hold the true heart of the locals. In all seasons, herds of Denverites make the weekend exodus to bike and hike the majestic Rockies. Visitors to Rocky Mountain National Park can cross-country ski, snowshoe, and sled among 14,000-foot peaks—occasionally crossing paths with mule deer, elk, or sentient snow angels.
