Denver has plenty to see and do all year round. As a vibrant city that is growing all the time, the variety of things to do grows along with it. The people of Denver come from all over the world, bringing their own culture and identity to the mix. That’s why you can see just about every flavor of the world within this one city.
Each of the city’s many neighborhoods has its own take on shopping, dining, music and entertainment. That means you get the opportunity to experience the widest range of cultures possible, all within the Denver city limits. We celebrate our diversity as it makes the city richer and more colorful. We want you to enjoy it too.
The outdoors is a big part of Denver life given the climate here and the variety of things to do. With the Rocky Mountains on our doorstep, it’s no wonder we like being outside. There are 22 mountain parks around the city, national forests and plenty of parks within the city to choose from. There is something here for every taste and mood.
There are hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails, some of the best in the world. There is also plenty of skiing, sledding and snow sports of all kinds during winter. Colorado is one of the richest states for outdoor space and we take advantage of as much of it as we can!
We also have a range of city parks, for spending time with the family, jogging, walking, exercising your dog or just enjoying the sunshine. As city’s go, Denver is well served with outdoor space.
In a city as full of life as Denver, there is plenty here to see and do whatever your tastes and appetite. We have art, culture, history, shopping, dining and music galore. There is never a quiet moment if you know where to look!
