Two parkgoers enjoy the view from Ruby Hill.
Ruby Hill
Most locals identify Ruby Hill with winter days spent sledding down the steep hills, but this south Denver park also offers a magnificent view to the northeast. The park, which borders the South Platte River, overlooks Overland Golf Course; scattered throughout are interesting pieces of public art. In the summer residents enjoy the swimming pool and BBQ areas -- as well as that view!

Best view of Denver, hands down, is from Mt. Falcon.

You're a balding white douche from the Midwest that adheres to pseudo-libertarian psychobabble and spends countless hours playing video games in the comfort of your elders' basement How is it even possible for you to be dumbed down even further?

I feel like the articles Denver Westword puts out are making me dumber-which I clearly cannot afford. I must dislike this site. Sorry and good luck.
