A favorite for many visitors to Denver, Washington Park is an ever-popular public urban park located just south of central Denver. Home to fascinating displays of historic and contemporary styles of architecture, the Park also features lakes, tennis courts, flower gardens, and more.
Pick a sunny morning or afternoon to stroll through the Park – you’ll be glad you did!
Stop in to learn something new about the natural history of Denver, Colorado, Earth and the universe! Chock-full of exhibitions, programs, and activities for all ages, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science houses over one million objects – there is much to be discovered!
In particular, be sure to check out the dinosaur bones, Egyptian mummies, and the wildlife exhibit (offering 90 habitat scenes and information about animals from around the world).
Named after Denver’s popular beer, Coors Field is the home turf of Major League Baseball’s Colorado Rockies. With capacity to hold over 50,000 people, watching a ball game has never been so exciting. And if you’re not able to make a game, it’s still worthwhile to take a tour of the stadium (guided tours are available for about $9 each).
A public botanical garden situated in the Cheesman Park neighbourhood, the Denver Botanic Gardens are a stunning sight to see, including gorgeous garden displays, outdoor art exhibits, gardening classes, and more. Take your pick of multiple gardens, including York Street, the Mordecai Children’s Garden, Chatfield, and more.
Brewing since 1873, Coors is a beer well known to many. Located about 15 miles outside of Denver, if you can make the trip, the Coors Brewery is an iconic attraction. Take a tour through the facilities, and learn everything there is to know about how the beer is produced, from the malting and brewing processes to how it’s bottled and packaged.
