Denver is home to the Rocky Mountains, over 300 days of sunshine a year, and a culture that mixes rich history with a young, vibrant and active population. In other words if you ask us, it’s the perfect place to be. So whether you’re traveling to Denver for business or leisure, or you are simply looking for a way to get out and about this weekend, these are a few of the places you must check out in order to get that true “Mile High” experience.
Public Art. The city of Denver has some incredible and highly unique pieces of art displayed around town. We suggest that you explore the city by foot or bike to see what you can discover.
16th Street Mall. Running directly through the center of downtown Denver, this pedestrian mall offers a variety of historic buildings, shops, retail stores, outdoor patios, restaurants, and scenic views with it’s trees, art and fountains.
The Molly Brown House Museum. Home to “the unsinkable Molly Brown,” a survivor of the Titanic disaster, this gorgeous stone 3-story home is located right on Capitol Hill. The Molly Brown house is one of Denver’s best reflections of history and architecture.
The Capitol Building. Built as a replication of our nation’s Capitol, the Capitol Building in Denver displays a gorgeous gold dome with the city’s skyline directly behind it. You can also find a brass plaque at the entry way stair that indicates you are exactly 5,280 feet or one mile above sea level.
Washington Park (Wash Park). Wash Park is the largest parks and recreation area in the Denver Metro area with a countless number of picnic spots, a 2.6 mile running trail, and two lakes—and that’s just scratching the surface. This area has become a staple to Denver’s young and unique culture.
