Denver Attractions

Denver is a multi-faceted city; visitors can enjoy a day at a museum, a game of the Denver Broncos, shopping for one of a kind piece of jewelry, savoring great food, sampling some of the best locally brewed beer or having fun at a nightclub or theater. And these are just some of the many activities of this great city.

Wild Denver
People of all ages enjoy one of the most popular Denver attractions, the Denver zoo. With more than 4,000 animals in their natural habitats, recreated rainforests, and paths surrounded by tundra wildflowers, it’s a sure bet for day filled with activity and fun. With 300 days of sunshine, this is the perfect place for a picnic with the family.

The Denver Botanic Gardens, another favorite Denver attraction, is among the top ten public gardens in the nation, housing magnificent arrays of tropical and rare plants and flowers, as well as varieties of wild species. This is a true nature lover’s paradise.

A Trip to the Past
A trip to this city would not be complete without one of its unique Denver attractions, Capital Hill’s Molly Brown House Museum, which pays tribute to this “unsinkable” Titanic survivor, Molly Brown, one of Denver’s own ladies. Docents will greet you in period costume; you don’t want to miss it.

Culture
The Denver Performing arts complex, also known as “The Plex” is the largest of its kind in the Western hemisphere. It is one of many important Denver attractions, one not to be missed. This is the home to a Tony award winning Theater Company, modern dance and ballet, a major symphony orchestra, internationally acclaimed opera, Broadway touring shows and much much more.

Another staple of Denver attractions is the love for mystery. At the Adams Mystery Playhouse, one can dine and get involved in the plots or help solve the mystery. This is definitely a great form of entertainment for adults and children.

Did you know that the U.S Mint opened in Denver in the 1800s? You can now tour this interesting place for free. It was originally used for changing the gold and silver found by prospectors, into coins and lingots. They began minting coins back in 1906. History buffs will love this place.

Tip:
When visiting Denver’s Art Museum, make sure you don’t miss the wing of the museum that was built by world renowned Architect Daniel Libeskind.

Trendy LoDo
The lower downtown area, also known as LoDo, is at the top of popular Denver attractions. It’s a historic district with red brick Victorian houses, which was completely revitalized in 1988. It is now the place for chic restaurants, a center for nightlife, jazz clubs, techno and retro dance clubs plus much more. At the North edge, you can’t miss the Coors Field, home to the Colorado Rockies, a Major League baseball team, and the only sports stadium that sits one mile above sea level.

With all these great Denver attractions at your fingertips, the only difficulty you’ll have is in choosing which attractions to fit in your busy schedule.
