The Mile High City, so named because it sits at 5,280 feet above sea level or one mile high, Denver has been rocking since the late 1850s when gold was discovered around Cherry Creek. Today, it is one of America’s hottest cities to live and play in and a great place to visit. With the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop and more than 300 days of sunshine per year, Denver is a visually appealing metropolis, filled with a variety of sights and attractions for everyone, from families to couples. Whether you are wandering the Denver Art Museum, doing some shopping and gallery hopping in Cherry Creek North, or visiting animals at the Denver Zoo, day or night, there is no shortage of things to do.

The city also home to several parks, including Civic Center Park in the heart of downtown, Washington Park, Cheesman Park, and City Park in surrounding neighborhoods. Just outside the city limits is Denver’s most famous park: Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater, which is one of the top outdoor concert venues in the U.S. Learn more about the best places to visit in the city with our list of the top attractions in Denver.

Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater

Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater is about 15 miles from the city center but is well worth the commute as this is the most revered attraction around Denver — and there is a shuttle to get you here should you not have a car. Red Rocks is both a live music venue and a city park owned by Denver. The name comes from the striking red sandstone rock formations found along the trails that also form the walls of the outdoor amphitheater.

The venue attracts major live music talent weekly in season and is most famous for its acoustics. Music buffs will want to stop by the Colorado Music Hall of Fame, which tells the stories of Colorado’s music greats.

Denver Museum of Nature & Science

The Denver Museum of Nature and Science sits in City Park’s southeast corner and is one of Denver’s top cultural attractions. Among the most notable exhibits are the imposing dinosaur skeletons, remains of Ice Age animals, the collection of minerals presented by the Coors family, and one of the largest nuggets of gold found in Colorado. The museum features changing exhibitions, so there is always something new to see. An IMAX theater and a Planetarium are also on-site. When you’ve finished wandering this museum, take time to check out City Park, which is popular with locals, and hosts a free summer jazz concert series.

Denver Art Museum

The massive, fortress-like Denver Art Museum has a vast collection, which includes American Indian, African, European, Asian, and Oceanic Art. Collections also include Spanish colonial and pre-Columbian works.

The remodeled Native American galleries are particularly impressive, covering a broad range of cultures and tribes from the United States and Canada. This extensive collection has gained a reputation throughout North America, with pieces that span 2,000 years of history. Also of note is the museum’s African art collection. The modern and contemporary art collection features both well-known names and emerging talent in a variety of media. There is also a separate gallery dedicated to photography.

The Denver Art Museum began in a building now known as the North Building, designed by Italian Architect Gio Ponti and opened in 1971. In 2006, the 146,000-square-foot Hamilton Building, an expansion designed by architect Daniel Libeskind, was opened to the public. The new building captured attention with its unique design, inspired by the peaks of the Rocky Mountains.

Denver Zoo

The Denver Zoo is beautifully laid out, with enclosures adapted to different species, from the polar bears’ den to monkeys island.

Some of the newer exhibits at the Denver Zoo include Primate Panorama, Tropical Discovery, and Predator Ridge. Today, the zoo is one of Denver’s most popular attractions.

On a low hill on the east side of Civic Center Park is the classical-style State Capitol, crowned by a gilded dome 250 feet high. From the viewing platform on the drum of the dome there are magnificent views of the city’s imposing skyline and the Front Range. The 13th step on the west side of the Capitol is exactly one mile above sea level, thus the name “mile high city.”

Larimer Square

A successful example of urban refurbishment in Denver is Larimer Square, with well-restored buildings of the Civil War period. In 1971, Larimer Square became Denver’s first historic district. Today, it is a major entertainment district. The area is home to art galleries, shops, cheerful restaurants, and gas lamps. It continues to evolve and is popular with both locals and tourists. During the day, most people come here to shop. In the evening, this is a great place for dining or seeing some live entertainment, such as comedians or bands. This area is also famous as the place where Buffalo Bill lived at one time.

16th Street Mall

Running through the city center, the 16th Street Mall is a European-style pedestrian precinct, with shady trees, flowerbeds, and park benches. The only traffic here is a free shuttle bus.

Near the south end of the street are numerous modern and Post-Modern skyscrapers.

United States Mint

Immediately beyond the City and County Building is the U.S. Mint, one of the United States’ six facilities. This is where the American currency is created and part of the country’s gold reserves are stored. Visitors can take a free guided tour of the facility to learn about the history and process of making money. There is a small gift shop on-site selling commemorative coins, souvenirs, games, and other items. Reservations for the tours are always required and can be scheduled online through the website.

Civic Center Park

In the heart of Denver is the green and, in summer, agreeably shady Civic Center Park, laid out in Classical style with numerous monuments. Principal administrative buildings of the state of Colorado are scattered around the outskirts of the park. Along its north side is Colfax Ave, which is the longest street in America, running for 26 miles east to west through Denver.

Cherry Creek North

Located just south and east of the Downtown, Cherry Creek North is Denver’s best known shopping district, especially if you’re looking for luxury and boutique shops and art galleries. Covering some 16 blocks laid out in a square, the leafy and flower-strewn neighborhood is also home to numerous restaurants, offering cuisine from around the globe. Cherry Creek hosts a number of different events throughout the year, the most famous of which is the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, held around July 4th, which attracts national and international artist vendors in mediums ranging from painting and jewelry to ceramics. The district runs along 2nd and 3rd Ave between Steele Street to the east and University Boulevard to the west.

Clyfford Still Museum

Part of the first generation of Abstract Expressionist artists, Clyfford Still is considered one of the 20th century’s most influential painters. The museum, which opened in late 2011, is home to an archive of more than 3,000 artworks by the late artist and showcases his life’s work and legacy in exhibits in a minimalist-style building.
