As a large city, Denver has much to offer in the way of entertainment and recreation. The state of Colorado has a reputation as a paradise to those who love the outdoors, and has plenty of options for nature lovers to take in the scenic beauty of the West in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains.

The Denver Art Museum contains over 68,000 pieces and displays a stunning collection of Native American art, displaying works from many different tribes of the North American regions. The museum also houses classical work from noted European artists, relics from the old West, and contemporary travelling exhibits.
