Denver

When it is time for an escape, plan an adventure in Denver.

The population of this area of North Central Colorado is nearly 600,000.

Treat the kids and enjoy some quality time at Elitch Gardens Theme Park and the United States Mint. For more family fun, head onwards to Water World and Lakeside Amusement Park.

An afternoon investigating the beautiful aquatic displays of Denver's Downtown Aquarium is the perfect way to get acquainted with the incredible creatures of the deep.

Snap a few photos, admire the educational displays and learn all about our fragile environment at the Denver Zoo. Be sure to ask at the entrance about feeding times and where to find the zoo's favorite specimens.

Spend an afternoon learning all about the fine art of brewing at one of the area's breweries. Both the Coors Brewery and the Lone Tree Brewing Company make for quite a refreshing day of sightseeing.

Motorheads are sure to enjoy the fast and furious action at the Speed Raceway.

From budding young botanists to weekend gardeners, everyone is sure to be impressed by the plants on display at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Many visitors also like to wander around the Hudson Gardens and the Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms.

Pack a picnic basket and take it easy for a while in the quiet, green surroundings of City Park and Civic Center Park. Washington Park and Robert Clement Park are two more pleasant spots to while away a lazy afternoon over a good book.

Admire the sight of cascading water as it topples down into the frothing pool below at Maxwell Falls.

Aurora Reservoir is a lovely place to spot local wildlife and skim some stones.

Want to get away from the noise of the city? Make your way over to Cherry Creek State Park and Roxborough State Park. Red Rocks Park and Red-Tailed Hawk Park are also recommended by nature-loving locals.

Grab a friend and explore some of the many cultural institutions in the area. Enjoy the cool and quiet interior as you admire the displays at the Forney Transportation Museum and the Colorado Railroad Museum. Another two to look at are the Astor House Museum and the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum.

Study a fascinating collection of scientific history objects, models and exhibits as you wander through the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, a renowned science museum.

Examine the various specimens that are on show as you walk around the packed collections of the Morrison Natural History Museum.

Denver is a frenzy of artistic activity, with gallery and exhibition spaces galore. Immerse yourself in the cool atmosphere at the Denver Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. If you have time afterwards, the Clyfford Still Museum and the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art are also well worth a look.

Nostalgics can rediscover the past at the Molly Brown House Museum and the Black American West Museum. Do you like the sound of those? There's even more to be seen at the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave and the History Colorado.

To learn about the area's rich and colorful past, pay a visit to at least one of its many historic structures and monuments. Commence your history tour at Colorado State Capitol Building or the University of Denver. When it comes to bygone times, the stories are countless. Dinosaur Ridge and the Manor House are two more insightful places to stop by.

The region's spiritual side is evidenced at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and Mother Cabrini Shrine. St. Elizabeth of Hungary and St. Patrick Mission Church are two more recommended holy sites.

Before you pack your bags and head back home, make sure you stop at a few of the lesser-known attractions here. The Denver Performing Arts Complex and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts might catch your interest. If you have the time, also check out the Buell Theatre and the Town Hall Arts Center.
