History Colorado’s 29th Annual Cemetery Crawl <p>Voltaire, the great French historian, once defined history as “a trick we play on the dead.” Tom “Dr. Colorado” Noel and a cast of star CU-Denver students will explore that idea with a walking tour of Colorado’s biggest boneyard. Come and meet the unusually lively occupants of subterranean dwellings. Students will portray notable occupants, from mayors to madams, including the good (Dr. Justina Ford), the bad (Grand Dragon John Galen Locke) and the ugly (John Chivington). It’s time to dig into some history!</p> <p><em>Provide your own transportation to starting point.

Wonderful RiNo: Denver’s River North by Bus <p>It’s natural for neighborhoods to go through changes over time. Prosperous areas fall on hard times, perhaps to be discovered and reimagined anew. Few of Denver’s neighborhoods epitomize this like River North, nicknamed “RiNo.” Once industrial, then peopled by artists and empty spaces, today this trendy spot close to downtown has energy bursting from its seams, with epic changes in store. Join us as we explore RiNo by foot and by bus, learning what once was, what’s been lost and what’s coming up for downtown’s rhinoceros next door.</p> <p><em>Includes bus transportation and a break for lunch on your own dime.</em></p> 3611 Chestnut Pl.

Museum Sampler: Broomfield by Bus <p>Once confusingly divided into four separate counties, Broomfield has followed Denver’s century-old example, becoming a city and county of its own. Strategically located between the hubs of Denver and Boulder, Broomfield is charting an energized course—proudly showing off its historical legacies while creating an attractive and modern city for those who call it home. We’ll explore the city and visit two of its most iconic offerings: the Depot Museum and the Veterans Museum. After we point out some other hotspots along the way, you’ll soon be heading back to Broomfield.</p> <p><em>Includes bus transportation, admissions and box lunch.</em></p> America/North_Dakota/Center

Cocoa on Historic Wazee Street <p>You may have crossed it, perhaps even driven along it, but now it’s time to hear the stories of one of our original downtown streets: Wazee. Join historian Bill Convery to discover the history of its name and learn about western shirts, supper clubs and even viaducts lost to the ravages of modernization. Discussing icons such as the Oxford Hotel and Rockmount Ranchwear, we’ll focus on what makes this street stand out from the rest. Wazee’s shimmer might have dimmed with the fortunes of downtown, but it’s brilliant again. Join us for the wonders of Wazee!</p> <p><em>Space is limited.

A Confluence of Another Kind: American Indians of Early Denver <p>Enjoy a fall walking tour of Lower Downtown, learning about interactions between Arapaho people and white settlers in early Denver. Our LoDo tour highlights both, showing how the world around the confluence of Cherry Creek and the Platte River was changing in 1858&#8211;64. Imagine tipis at 15th and Blake or native delegations visiting Governor Evans at 14th and Arapahoe. After the tour, you’ll have the option of hopping onto an RTD bus to Tocabe, a traditional American Indian restaurant, returning downtown afterward. The stories are there to find, so let’s find them together.</p> 1536 Wynkoop St., Ste. 108 Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Christmas Splendor: The Broadmoor Hotel <p>Among elegance expressed in architecture, our stay at the Broadmoor includes a sumptuous dinner and overnight accommodations.
