If you’re preparing for a visit to the Mile High City, you may be struggling to narrow down a list of worthwhile activities. Should you stick around Downtown or spend the afternoon exploring Washington Park? While you can always stop by our concierge desk during your stay, The Brown is also happy to take the guesswork out of planning by providing our list of the top five things to do in Denver.
Tour a Brewery
Dedicated domestic beer drinkers won’t want to skip a trip to Golden, Colorado and the Coors Brewery. If you prefer to stay within the city limits, there are also several noteworthy breweries nearby with guided tours available. The Great Divide is located less than a mile from the hotel and pours a variety of delicious brews.
Attend a Sporting Event
Denver boasts a thriving sports scene with local fan favorites including the Rockies, the Nuggets, and the Broncos. Depending on the time of year, you can catch a game alongside the spectators at Coors Field or Pepsi Center. And if you happen to get tickets to Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium during football season, you can also visit the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame.
Visit a Museum
Many major cities boast exceptional museums and the Colorado state capital is certainly no exception. Get your cultural fix at the renowned Denver Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, or bring the kids along for an afternoon of hands-on learning and playing at the Children’s Museum of Denver.
Rent a Bike
Locals are known for staying active and the best way to follow their lead and explore your surroundings is by renting a bike. The city is a strong proponent of cycling, with a bike share program and current initiatives to expand and improve the metropolitan bike lanes. In addition, there are over 85 miles of paved and dirt trails for you to travel.
Explore the Outdoors
The Denver Botanic Gardens will give you a taste of the natural beauty of the western United States. However, you may want to travel a bit further for some truly unforgettable scenery. Rocky Mountain National Park is located within a 2-hour drive of The Brown, while Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre is a visually breathtaking venue that hosts big name performers just a half hour away.
