Big Blue Bear at the Colorado Convention Center - located just two blocks from Hotel Teatro, you can find a big blue bear standing tall at 40 feet peeking into the Colorado Convention Center. He represents the nature of Colorado in the midst of the city and the curiosity of what’s happening inside the convention center. He even has his own Instagram account, so be sure to tag him in your photos! Want to take home your own blue bear? Find mini figurines at the I Heart Denver Store on 16th Street Mall
