Whilst Union Station is the main train station of the city, it actually feels like a small city.

There are even cart vendors selling flowers making it a really enchanting place to go.

Denver Colorado Capitol
The Denver Capitol and surrounding area is fantastic area to walk around in which there are free tours Monday-Friday. The Capitol dome is covered with 200 ounces of 24-carat gold leaf. An interesting fact is the Capitol sits one mile above sea level. There is an engraving on the 15th step but the 13th step is actually the one-mile high step. A true photo opportunity for tourists.
