Denver | Best of Denver

Denver Art Museum
  • Denver Art Museum
  • From a distance, the Denver Art Museum can intimidate. So futuristic, metallic, and sharp-edged, it's more like a giant shard of glass than a haven for historic artwork.

Downtown Aquarium
  • Downtown Aquarium
  • Where's the best place to see a tiger in Denver? The Downtown Aquarium. Don't let the name fool you, this is no ordinary aquarium.

  • Hiking
  • Hiking in Colorado can be a breathtaking, heart pounding experience. Literally. Already nearly a mile above sea level, Denver and surrounding areas have thin air, so if you're not used to the altitude, you can quickly become short of breath and fatigued.

Inspiration Point Park
  • Inspiration Point Park
  • The view from atop Inspiration Point Park is grandiose. Standing at the west-pointing fingertip of the 25.5-acre park, you can see the sloping green hills of Ken Caryl valley to the south all way north to the spinning wind turbines along Highway 93.

  • In the foothills west of Denver, towering, red sandstone monoliths dominate a valley once known as the Garden of Angels and the Garden of Titans. Today, this picturesque area is known as Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre
  • Red Rocks Amphitheatre
  • Light and sound stream from center stage, striking "ship rock" and "creation rock", two 300-foot monoliths, before cascading down upon an inspired, frenzied crowd.

Rocky Mountain National Park
  • Rocky Mountain National Park
  • The rutting call of an 1100-pound bull elk pierces the crisp air of another fall evening. Scattering spectators search prime photo locales, while fly-fishermen, hikers, and horseback riders blend among the wildlife.

Six Flags Elitch Gardens
  • Six Flags Elitch Gardens
  • As the saying goes, "Not to see Elitches is not to see Denver." Elitch Gardens, located in downtown Denver, is one of the main attractions of the Mile High City and stands as a 70-acre amusement park that has been in business for more than 100 years.

Skiing and Snowboarding
  • Skiing and Snowboarding
  • It happens every year in similar fashion, creating a similar sense of urgency and anticipation. A heavy October snow leaves summer mentalities suddenly scorned, with the muddy mindsets that developed over six months of rubber treading swamped beneath two fresh feet of snow.
