    Denver Art Museum

    28 reviews

    The Denver Art Museum looks like a cross between a paper weight and a space ship. You can't not love something so irresistibly gaudy. There are a number of outdoor cafes that have decent views of the museum.

    Denver Botanic Gardens

    31 reviews

    Went for the special Christmas lights and it was absolutely amazing! The moment we walked in it started snowing adding to the magical feeling. We decided to buy the extra 3D glasses and it was so worth it! It sounds silly but seeing all those little sparkling candy canes was really fun and added that extra bit of whimsy. Highly ...

    Denver Performing Arts Complex

    15 reviews

    The Performing Arts Complex is where many classical concerts, ballets, operas and plays are held. It reminds me somewhat of the Galleria in Milan with its barrel vaulted glass ceiling. The balconies have excellent views of downtown and the mountains.

    16th Street Mall

    42 reviews

    I really consider this area Denver. Take a stroll down 16th Street Mall, or take the free bus that stops at each block if the weather is cold or wet. People are everywhere and you will truly get a sense of what the city is all about. 16th Street is the host to hundreds of shops, both local and nationwide ...

    Put on your sequins, knot that bow tie, and indulge in the grandeur of theatre at the DCPA. Imagine yourself pirouetting in the ballet, or with perfect comedic timing on stage in period costuming as you watch the world-class productions that come through the facility. Just watching isn't enough? The DCPA offers classes across the board including stage acting, impov, ...

    Downtown Aquarium

    21 reviews

    The Denver Aquarium is situated on the east side of Lodo near the REI and Coors Field. When my wife's family came to visit a few years back we split up one day with some of us going on a hike and others going to the Aquarium. My niece and nephew remember the sharks to this day.

    The Church

    2 reviews

    The Church nightclub in downtown Denver was actually a Presbyterian church for over a hundred years. One of the managers showed me through the cathedral room and pointed out memorial plaques along the walls (one commemorating the dead from WWI). In 1998 the Church became a nightclub after its current owners bought it from the church and paid to have ...

    Union Station

    8 reviews

    Western Cities like Denver only survived because of their railroads. Union Station is one of those grand old stations that evokes a time when train travel was the dominant mode of transportation. These days you can still take a sleeper to San Francisco through the Rockies.
