Denver, Colorado is a great place to live. We get plenty of sun, have the mountains a short distance away and have more National Parks than we could ever wish for. That isn’t all, our city is blessed with plenty of other attractions too. Here are just some of them.
The Denver Art Museum is a juxtaposition of the new and old in the architecture and in the exhibits it displays. The museum has the largest collection of international art in the West and also has lots of Native American and Spanish-inspired work too. [YELP]
Red Rocks Park is a natural phenomenon that has to be seen to be believed. A geological marvel with a natural amphitheater that is often used for concerts and performances. The park also has miles of trails and plenty of nature to enjoy too. [GOOGLE]
