Our Favorites

Denver might be known for our world class hotels, restaurants and breweries, but there is so much more to Denver than great accommodations, great food and great beer. Considering the city boasts more than 300 days of sunshine a year, there’s no shortage of things for you, your friends and your family to enjoy.

  • The Wild Animal Sanctuary is located about 30 miles outside of the city’s limits, and the 320-acre rescue and educational facility boasts more than 300 large animals who spend their days roaming free. It’s one of the only places in the US where visitors can see lions, tigers and bears living in a natural habitat.
  • Red Rocks  is the world’s only completely natural Amphitheatre.  In addition to hosting an epic, blockbuster summer concert series, those who aren’t wanting to catch a live show are able to enjoy the park year-round. If you’re in the mood for a hike, the 1.4-mile Trading Post Loop Hiking Trail has some incredible views of area valleys and rock formations.


  • If you fancy yourself as a bit of a beer aficionado, Denver and its surrounding areas will not disappoint. The Mile High City is home to dozens of microbreweries; if you’re looking to tour something a bit larger, you can do that, too. The Coors Brewery is located about 29 miles outside of Denver. Coors has the ability to brew up to 22 million barrels of beer each year, which makes it the largest single-site brewer anywhere on the planet.

Award Winning Restaurants

  • Foodies rejoice! Denver is home to some amazing restaurants, so if you’re trying to decide which ones you’d like to visit, you may not need to narrow things down too much. There are several tour groups within the city that offer a few different food tour options. Or, if you’re more interested in a cocktail tour, those are available too!

Rafting & kayaking

Water enthusiasts have long known that some of the best rafting and kayaking in the state is just a short drive from the city. Remember, if you’re visiting from out of state, you’ll need to plan for the extreme water conditions present during much of the summer. Stay safe out there!
