Visit Denver.

Visiting Denver means spending quality time in one of the country’s most scenic cities. To make the most of your visit, consider spending as much time as possible engaging in activities that put you in the great outdoors. Whether you enjoy a casual stroll through a park or a tough hike through the mountains, outdoor adventure abounds in Denver. Take a short drive outside the city for the ultimate skiing experience. There are plenty of slopes to explore when you take in one of the most popular activities in Colorado. If you visit during warmer months, find your way to one of Denver’s beautiful trails. Visit Red Rocks Park for the opportunity to wander through meadows and admire spectacular views of the city from over 6,000 feet above sea level. This open-air amphitheater is a hot spot for concerts throughout the year, known for its unique red sandstone structures. If you’d prefer to bike your way through Red Rocks, you can do that too. Cycle, walk, hike, or catch a concert at one of the best spots in the city.

After your adventures on the trails, spend some time exploring Denver’s downtown area. The LoDo district, Denver’s oldest neighborhood, has galleries, boutiques, and delicious local foods in which to indulge. Denver’s downtown area has a one-mile radius, making it super walkable. Consider kayaking on the Platte River in the heart of the action or take a brewery tour to experience local beer culture. Shoppers can visit 16th Street Mall and take a free shuttle throughout the area, or head to Larimer Square for additional vibrant local shops and businesses.

For popular attractions in Denver, consider visiting the Denver Art Museum. This unique structure is comprised of two buildings that boast unmatched architectural designs. The first building mimics a fortress, while the second resembles a titanium crystal with large peaks. Here, you’ll find one of the world’s largest collections of Native American art and history to commemorate the large presence of Native Americans in this western state. Explore Old West history and more when you visit this landmark attraction.
