Although Denver is over 800 miles from the Mississippi River there is a massive riverboat replica in South Denver. To add to the wacky factor it’s actually a car wash where the only water is internal, not external. And you can’t reach this nautical monument via a river. It’s at 3480 South Poplar Street just off of Hampden Avenue. GIven the height and immensity of the structure you’ll have no trouble sighting it from Hampden. Now someone needs to show this to John Fogerty of “Proud Mary” song fame.
