’s capital is a culture capital, with all the natural beauty you’d expect from a city at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Although it’s cold in winter, Denver (and the rest of Colorado) actually gets a lot of sunshine, and there’s more to this city than snow. Check out the art galleries and museums, the food and shopping, the sport, the gorgeous scenery and the other little-known wonders of Denver when you book one of our Denver hotels.
Things to do
Denver is full of interesting and fun activities both for kids and adults. Love museums and culture? Explore the mysteries of the universe at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Check out galleries like the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art and the Clyfford Still Museum. Catch a show or a live band at one of Denver’s theatres.
If you need a thrill, take a spin on a rollercoaster at Elitch Gardens Theme Park.
Are you a sports fan? Then watch the famous Denver Broncos play a game on their home turf, the Sports Authority Field at Mile High stadium. But get in quick – every home game since 1970 has sold out!
Don’t forget to chill out in the Denver Botanic Gardens, a garden with heaps of Rocky Mountains native plants. You might recognise it from Woody Allen’s movie Sleeper.
Shopping and dining
Cherry Creek is the sweet spot for shopping in Denver. It has Cherry Creek North, a district on Milwaukee Street full of independent shops and boutiques, and The Cherry Creek Shopping Centre, the place for big name brands. But there’s great shopping in several parts of this city. Larimer Square has the latest offerings from the runways of New York and Paris, and 16th Street Mall is a tree-lined pedestrian-only promenade.
On top of its cool bars offering things like cocktails, cocktails and craft beer, Denver has many must-try restaurants with fresh locally-grown food and cosy atmospheres. One of Denver’s most interesting restaurants has to be Downtown Aquarium, where you can have a meal surrounded by a 150,000-gallon tank of marine life and coral.
