The “Mile High City,” and the capital city of Colorado, Denver is one of the most exciting cities you can tour in the US. It’s surrounded by surreal sceneries and is a perfect place for people who love outdoor adventures.

There are many amusement opportunities, places to visit, and things to discover in Denver that warrant sticking around. Denver is home to world-class parks, museums, the best music venue, and all four major US sporting leagues.

The city has entertainment for travelers of all ages. Let’s briefly discuss some things you can do in Denver to spice up your touring experience.

Experiencing Red Rocks

Of all the exciting attractions in Denver, Red Rocks is something special. The city park and its outdoor amphitheater are the best places for hiking, biking, and live music. Concerts at Red Rocks are mesmerizing as the stage is set between two giant sandstone rock formations.

It’s not only stunning and beautiful, but this naturally formed amphitheater has incredible acoustics. Many great acts come to this venue, and many yoga classes or even movie nights are hosted here.

The park consists of several different biking and hiking trails for you to experience breathtaking mountain views. You can also check the Colorado Music Hall of Fame while you’re in Denver.

Denver contains plenty of museums; the best one of these is the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. There are excellent exhibitions of dinosaurs, mummies, gems, and more that make the trip one of the most memorable and educational adventures, especially for kids.

Other than the exhibitions, this museum is also an IMAX theatre and one of the best planetariums in the US. There’s also a T-Rex café here where you can grab a bite and a drink. There’s so much to do and observe here that you’ll easily spend an entire day taking in everything that the exhibitions have to offer.


Relaxing In The Local Parks

After visiting some museums, City Park is another place you`ll want to go. This is the largest urban park in the city and a prominent place for tourists and locals alike. There are free concert series in the City Park during the summer season, so check the schedule to see what’s playing.

Another great choice is Washington Park which is situated just south of downtown. It’s worth visiting if you’re a fitness enthusiast and love visiting large green spaces for hiking, biking, or some water sports.
