The largest in the Rocky Mountains and one of the main cities of the American West, Denver is also among the country’s most interesting destinations. Known as the Mile High City, it combines impressive natural scenery with an innovative spirit that’s emphasized by a busy cultural scene and one of the highest concentrations of microbreweries anywhere on the planet. Thanks to its central location, Denver can also serve as a hub for exploring the rest of Colorado. These are three of the most interesting attractions in and around it:
- Denver Botanic Gardens. Colorado is home to an almost unparalleled natural beauty and a lot of it can be easily accessed from Denver, but it’s also possible to enjoy nature's calming effect within the city. Located in Cheesman Park, itself a public green area, the large Denver Botanic Gardens is where you can see thousands of flora species that are both local and from faraway places around the world. The gardens are also home to an amphitheater that frequently hosts cultural events.
- Breweries. Denver can only be described as a craft beer mecca and interesting brewery tours are one thing that the city has absolutely no shortage of. The most famous of them, Coors Brewery, is actually in the Denver suburb of Golden which is about a 30-minute drive to the west, but many microbrewery tours can also be found right in the heart of the city — including Great Divide Brewing, one of the pioneers that helped put Denver on the craft beer map. (Colorado is actually also one of America’s prime wine-growing destinations and consequently, there are also many wine tours in the area).
- Ski Resorts. Denver is your gateway to skiing in Colorado, as many of the fantastic resorts are located within a few hours' driving distance. Check out Breckenridge, Winter Park, Vail, Aspen, Keystone, or one of the many other amazing skiing options Colorado has to offer.
- Rocky Mountain National Park. Made up of stunning snow-capped peaks, highland lakes, and thick forests, Rocky Mountain National Park is what for many people Colorado is all about. The famous national park is 75 miles (125 km) northwest of Denver and can be reached in about 90 minutes, making it one of the best day trips from Denver. The road network inside the park is in good shape and you can explore most of it by car, though traffic can be quite heavy, especially during holidays.
