Things to do in Denver

Museums & Historical Attractions

Historical Tours.jpg

Since its Wild West beginnings, a rich tapestry of cultures have molded Denver into its modern form. Learn more through world-class museums and attractions like the Black American West Museum and Museo de las Americas. Get your hands on history at the History Colorado Center and Colorado Railroad Museum. And Denver Art Museum’s Indigenous Arts of North America collection includes more than 18,000 art objects, representing the heritage of cultures and tribes across the United States and Canada.

Denver Mint

US Mint.jpg

Learn how to make money, literally. Denver has one of two U.S. Mint  facilities in the country that offers free tours. The Colorado gold rush that began in 1858 brought thousands of miners and settlers to the territory, resulting in the founding of towns like Denver, Auraria, Breckenridge, and Golden. It also created a need to turn that newly discovered gold into currency, as the closest U.S. Mint facilities were in San Francisco to the west and New Orleans to the east — both a long, often treacherous haul by wagon.

Denver Brewery & Distillery Tours

The 84-acre campus is an enchanting urban field station, where 3,000+ wonderful wild animals serve as ambassadors for their wild counterparts all over the world. 

Denver Street Art

Denver street artists have been busy brightening (and enlightening) the urban landscape for decades by making canvases of the city’s alleyways, building exteriors, warehouses, garage doors, and storefronts. Now with local news source Westword reporting a proliferation of more than 100 new creations in just one summer, there’s more Denver street art to see in Denver than ever before. 

Denver Union Station

Sit back, relax, and take in the view inside one of Denver's most iconic historic landmarks, Denver Union Station. Located in the heart of downtown Denver, the renovated 1914 Beaux-Arts train station is home to 10 chef-owned restaurants and bars, boutiques, and the 112-room Crawford Hotel. Union Station is also the transportation hub for The Mile High City, offering access to RTD's front-range bus route, the free 16th Street Mall shuttle, the free Downtown Denver Circulator, the FasTracks light rail line and Amtrak trains.

16th Street Mall

Designed by famed architect I.M. Pei, the pedestrian promenade is made of red, white and gray granite in a repeating pattern that, seen from above, resembles the skin of a diamondback rattlesnake. Free shuttle buses, dubbed the MallRide, travel up and down the 16th Street Mall, stopping on every corner. Hop on and hop off as the shuttles come and go every few minutes and make everything downtown easy to reach.

Downtown Aquarium


Colorado may be landlocked, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have plenty of marine life for you and your family to gawk at. The Downtown Aquarium features fascinating sea creatures, sharks, and more. All in all there are more than 15,000 fish, mammals, and plants, including an exhibit of Sumatran tigers who love to swim. And if you're left with the urge to get a little wet yourself, you're in luck: the Swim with the Fish and Dive with the Sharks programs let you swim alongside giant groupers, Moray eels, guitarfish, sand tiger sharks, green sea turtles, and 400 of their closest friends.

Colorado High Plains Adventure.jpg

Plot your journey to where hoof meets road. Come face-to-face with the big-eyed gaze of amazing alpacas and farm critters just waiting to meet you. Say “howdy” to the folks who work the land, and get hands-on field trips at farms and ranches. Fill baskets with just-picked freshness. Get a taste fresh from the fields or have a sit-down with plenty of options.

Urban Hikes.jpgDenver is a city with boundless outdoor fun and has an ideal location next to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. While The Mile High City is conveniently close to major peaks for hiking, there’s actually no need to head into the mountains when Denver’s regional trail system encompasses hundreds of miles for all ages and abilities to explore.
