Denver showing cbd

Flanked by majestic mountains, which attract skiers in winter and hikers in summer, this city is full of outdoor adventures as well offers many cultural attractions. 

Denver, the capital of Colorado, has a rich cowboy history but is no longer the Wild West. A former mining town, this city has long since shaken off its frontier reputation. These days visitors can enjoy all the museums, galleries and theaters you'd expect of a modern state capital along with outstanding outdoor activities.

A great way to get a feel for this city is to head to the Golden Triangle Museum District and explore some of the city’s most-visited exhibition halls. These include the Denver Art Museum, the History Colorado Center and the Art Institute of Colorado. Afterward, take a stroll through the nearby City Park or check out the district’s shops, clubs, cafés, salons, studios and performing arts centers.

Denver’s family attractions are also worth visiting. The Denver Museum of Nature & Science and the Children’s Museum of Denver are very popular and so is the Denver Zoo, which was founded in the late 1800s. Many visitors say it is among the best zoos in the country. Catch a breeze on Water World’s Mile High Flyer ride or on the Lakeside Amusement Park roller coasters. Look for shows at the Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre to enjoy a concert among amazing canyon formations. At Dinosaur Ridge, do the Triceratops Trail and marvel at the 1,600 butterflies in the Tropical Conservatory of the Butterfly Pavilion.

Denver and its surrounding areas also offer plenty for those with a love of the great outdoors. In the warmer months, hike the trails of Rocky Mountain National Park or jump on a bike and tour Colorado's Wine Country.

Rent a car and head for the hills. Just 30 minutes' drive away you’ll find Golden, home to the Coors Brewery and the gateway to the Rocky Mountains. To the south, the Garden of the Gods has breathtaking rock formations. In winter, hit the ski slopes at nearby Vail, Copper Mountain or Beaver Creek and discover why Denver is such a popular destination.
