Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

 

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.

For a stroll through the city replete with shopping and people-watching, visit the 16th Street Mall. A pedestrian mall featuring hundreds of trees, thousands of flowers, and a pathway designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei, the 16th Street Mall is a must-visit destination for an afternoon walk or a stop at one of the numerous area cafes. Train and history buffs can make a short trip outside the city to the town of Golden to visit the Colorado Railroad Museum, which features over 100 locomotives and cars, as well as photos and historic artifacts, on display in a setting reminiscent of an 1880s rail depot.

Living in Denver offers plenty of access to the great outdoors. If you’d like to take in some of Colorado’s natural beauty, start with the Denver Botanical Gardens, a 24-acre park conveniently located right in the city. The site includes 50 different gardens, including many filled with plants native to the area, as well as gardens inspired by a variety of international locales with similar climates. The Botanical Gardens also features indoor plant displays which rotate according to season. Of course, no visit to Colorado would be complete without a trip to the famed Rocky Mountain National Park. Just a short drive outside the city, the park is a world-famous destination encompassing 415 square miles of awe-inspiring scenic beauty. The park has hundreds of miles of hiking trails, informational visitor centers, fantastic scenic overlooks, and many options are wheelchair accessible.
