Outdoor adventurers will relish in all Denver has to offer, from renting one of the city’s shared B-cycle bikes to enjoying one of the many parks. Visitors can also head to Red Rocks, the only naturally occurring, acoustically ideal amphitheater in the world, where locals flock for concerts and morning workouts. Even though the Mile High City is consistently ranked one of the best for outdoor activities, there’s plenty for culture or food aficionados. Often nicknamed the Napa Valley of Beer, a microbrewery tour is a must for any suds-loving enthusiast, and Denver’s museum scene is worth seeing. From rotating exhibitions at the well-curated Museum of Contemporary Art to the internationally renowned collection at the iconic Clyfford Still Museum, the city’s uncrowded museums will satisfy even the most discerning art lover.
