The Best Things to See and Do in Denver

With 300 days of sunshine and a flourishing cultural scene, Denver is one of America’s favorite playgrounds. At the base of the Colorado Mountains, Denver is known as the “Mile High City.” Fabulous accommodations, award-winning dining, upscale shopping and seven professional sports teams combine with spectacular views and natural beauty to make Denver a choice vacation spot. The list of things to do in Denver is about as long as the city is high so to help you make the most of your visit, here are the 10 must-do things to experience while in Denver.

1. The Denver Art Museum

The Denver Art Museum is a part of the Civic Center of Denver. One of the largest art museums between Chicago and the West Coast, it houses collections of over 68,000 works from around the world and across several centuries, but it’s the collection of American Indian Art that it’s best known for. In addition to exhibits, the museum has activities for all ages every day. These hands-on activities are included in the general admissions fee. A Fun Things for Families to Do brochure can be downloaded from the museum’s site in English and Spanish. This brochure lists the activities happening on every floor of the museum. Everyday activities include the Just for Fun Center, Kid’s Corner, Gallery Games and Art Making and a Studio for sculpting. Weekend and school holidays bring even more interactive involvement with programs such as Backpack & Art Tubes and Create-n-Take.
