Many adventure seekers who want to explore the Colorado Rockies see Denver as a viable starting point. But truth be told, there’s plenty to see and do in the Mile High City that you may want to plan your entire trip around it.
Here’s how to get a jumpstart on your travel planning and turn your trip to Denver into an unforgettable experience.
Where to Stay
Luxury brands like the Four Seasons, the Ritz Carlton, and the Grand Hyatt have made a home here, offering stunning high rise views of the city and close proximity to shopping and dining. If you’re looking for some of Denver’s more unique properties, consider staying at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco or the Art, both of which offer a boutique experience with inspiring decor at every turn.
Things to See and Do
Denver is brimming with activities for families, couples, sports enthusiasts, and anyone who’s always up for adventure. Consider indulging in the following for the complete Denver experience:
Take in a Sporting Event
Home of the Denver Broncos football team and the Colorado Rockies baseball team, the city offers tons of sporting events year round. Many travelers choose to plan their trips around their favorite team’s schedule so they can enjoy the action up close.
Explore the Denver Zoo
Families can spend an entire day at Denver Zoo and may not make it all the way through. The zoo has been modeled after a Kenyan nature preserve and is home to more than 4,000 animals.
Visit Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre
One of the most iconic live music venues in the country, Red Rocks Park is a postcard-worthy paradise that has hosted some of the world’s most famous musicians. There are tons of hiking trails throughout the 700-acre park, along with the natural amphitheater that is fun to explore even if there isn’t a concert on the books.
Best Time of Year to Visit Denver
Denver has something to offer everyone year round, but most people prefer to visit in either March and April or June through October. The summer high season is June through August, where hotels tend to be a little pricier, but the weather is warm enough to enjoy without sweltering heat. Spring and fall months also tend to be warm, but crowds are fewer and luxury hotel suites are more affordable.
If you want to avoid crowds altogether, the winter can be ideal if you don’t mind sticking to indoor activities. Most travelers to Colorado are busy skiing the Rockies and tend to keep out of Denver. This is when hotel prices are the best, and if you don’t mind not being able to enjoy all your favorite outdoor activities, this could be a prime time to visit.
