Top 10 things to do in Denver
By Joe Wong
It took a while for Mother Nature to bring us snow enthusiasts the much awaited fresh white powder here in the Rocky Mountains this winter. Three feet of snow later, the slopes are more than ready to be enjoyed at its fullest at any resort in the area.
If you like snowboarding or skiing then I’m sure you are probably salivating for what I just described. If you like either groomed or fresh powder snow, the ski resorts near the Front Range feature first class mountains where you can practice your favorite winter sport.
In case you are wondering what to do in Denver besides what I just mentioned, then you have to know that Mile High City will amaze you and your family on your next visit.
The top 10 things to do in the Denver area are:
If you come during winter time, ski resorts give extreme sports enthusiast the perfect terrain conditions. They attract thousands of tourists from all over the world every winter season. However, a few times I have skied during late season as late as May.
State Capitol Building:
Visit the places where decisions are made on behalf of the local residents. You can either take an inside tour or just take pictures in the surroundings
Denver County and City Building:
Right across from Civic Center Park you will see a building that if you visit during holiday season will give you a perfect background for a Christmassy postcard.
Museum of Nature and Science:
Several amazing expositions that will entertain you and the young ones in the family for a good part of the day.
If you like theme parks then this is the right place for you. Thrilling rides and a water park are just a few of the attractions that will make your day a fun one to remember.
For those of you that cannot leave a city without visiting a shopping center Denver has plenty of excellent options to choose from. Anywhere from a street level mall in the 16th Street Mall to the Park Meadows and Cherry Creek malls will satisfy your shopping needs.
Just a few miles northwest from Denver there’s a college town where you find an interesting cultural diversity among residents and tourists. Pearl Street Mall is where you want to get started exploring this town.
We continue by taking advantage of the unique terrain conditions this area has to offer. There are several activities for the outdoor enthusiasts. Thousand of trails for walking, biking or hiking are among people’s favorites. Don’t forget the breathtaking camping sites all over the Rockies.
This stands for Lower Downtown and it is basically the heart of Denver‘s nightlife. Several bars and nightclubs wait for you at this electrifying area.
Black Hawk, CO:
About 45 minutes west of town there’s this gambling town that features numerous casinos of different types and sizes. Slot machines, roulette, poker and blackjack tables will keep you entertained for hours.
So there you go, if you had the idea that Denver attractions were just about winter sports now you know there’s lots more to do in the Mile High City.
