1. Red Rocks
Just southwest of Denver proper lies one of the most famous event venues in the world: Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Both visually and acoustically stunning, Red Rocks is a favorite setting for event attendees and performers alike. Offering events ranging from rock concerts to movie showings to yoga classes, Red Rocks has something for everyone.
2. Avanti F&B
If you’re looking for a trendy place to whet your whistle and/or satisfy your hunger, look no further than Avanti. At Avanti, you can grab a drink while looking out over the gorgeous view of downtown Denver or get some food from one of the multiple restaurants - they offer everything from Italian to sushi, arepas to shawarma.
3. Wash Park
While there are many beautiful parks in Denver (City and Cheesman made our honorable mention list), Wash Park is where you should head if you’re only in the city for a short time. Take a stroll around the park on the well-maintained trail, play some volleyball with the locals or simply stretch out on the grass and take in the beauty of the trees and lake.
One of Denver’s most historic buildings, Union Station was recently given a beautiful face lift, turning it into a current hotspot. Union Station features a number of restaurants, bars and shops, along with amazing architecture and is not to be missed when you’re in Denver.
5. Coors Field
Located in the center of Denver’s popular and easily accessible Lower Downtown (LoDo) neighborhood, Coors Field is the perfect venue to watch a baseball game. When in the stadium, visitors will be awed by great views of both the Denver skyline and the Rocky Mountains. Go Rockies!
