Go local
Looking for the perfect souvenir to bring back from your Denver business trip? Check out Rockmount Ranch Wear for an array of snap button shirts, cowboy boots, western belts and other supplies that will let you bring home a taste of the Wild West. The jam-packed store, located in the same LoDo storefront since 1946, has sold its snap button shirts to a long string of celebrities, from Elvis Presley to Paul McCartney.

Don't do this
Despite its image as a starting point for ski vacations, do not come to Denver expecting to see much snow – or any form of moisture for that matter.  Denver has more sunny days than any other major US city, including those in Florida, California or Hawaii. So instead of packing an overcoat, bring your sunglasses, lip balm and sunscreen. The sunny, dry weather and access to outdoor activities is one key reason why Colorado has some of the fittest, least obese residents of any US state.
