What to Do In Denver
Denver raises more public art funding per capita than any other city in the USA, making it a world-class destination for museums, galleries, and the performing arts. You’d need weeks to see it all, but save time for the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys, The Kirkland Museum, and a show at the Denver Center for Performing Arts.
Lovers of the outdoors can choose from a paradise of parks in and around the city for sports, hiking, whitewater rafting, and cycling. Afterwards, pencil in a visit to a microbrewery and quench your thirst: we recommend the award-winning Great Divide, but there are dozens.
With so much to do, you’ll need a place to relax after exploring Denver. Skyscanner’s hotel price comparison tool is completely free, and it’s a great way to find a cozy place to relax after each adventurous day.
Travel Tips for Tourists Visiting Denver
Visitors pour into the city year round, but September through October are peak times for foliage and dry crisp weather, while November through March is Denver's world-famous ski season.
Nestled up to the foothills of the majestic Rockies, Denver takes its scenery very seriously: you can see mountains for 140 miles, and it’s actually illegal for new buildings to obstruct the view from the State Capitol.
