Denver, the capital city of Colorado, combines a modern city with the spirit of the Old West. The city, which sits in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains to the west, is home to a diverse collection of art museums, major sports teams and a vibrant music scene. The region is also home to Coors beer and its own cuisine, with specialties like Rocky Mountain oysters and the Denver omelet.
There are so many fun things to do in Denver; you won't know where to start. Some of the most popular Denver attractions include the Colorado State Capitol Building, the Molly Brown House Museum (home to the "unsinkable" survivor of the "Titanic"), Denver Botanic Gardens and the 16th Street Mall, a 1.25-mile-long pedestrian street in downtown Denver.
Of course, your trip to Denver would not be complete without a trip out of town to see the wonders of the Rocky Mountains. Denver day trips include visiting Pikes Peak, enjoying a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater and browsing the bookshops and other boutiques in quirky Boulder. You can also take one of the Denver to Rocky Mountain National Park tours and explore the varied plant and wildlife there. There are several ski resorts within a short drive of Denver, including Vail, Winter Park and Beaver Creek. These resorts aren't only for winter fun; they are beautiful places to hike during the summer.
Whether you're new to Denver or you've visited the "Mile High City" a dozen times, there's always something new to discover.
