Creature Does Copenhagen the American Way

Gravette, Childress, Partanen and Mathews take us on a culinary tour of Denmark’s capital city.
By Sam McGuire

For many years Copenhagen has been a globally-important place for skating. Every year they host the CPH contest and pros from all corners of the world attend.

You can bike everywhere. There is good food. You can drink to your heart's content at any hour.

The architecture is amazing and perfect for skating and they are always building new spots. Even newly-constructed basketball courts have ramps surrounding them. It’s as if the city planners are skateboarders themselves. The summer weather is perfect, the women are beautiful and the spots are plentiful. What more could you want?

Watch the clip of this journey next Tuesday.
