Denver is one of the most unique cities in the USA and is packed with things to see and do. The mile high city is known for its incredible mountain views, buzzing sports culture, fascinating museums and so much more.

It’s walkable, has some of the friendliest and happiest people in America, and is surrounded by the mesmerizing Rocky Mountains and Colorado River – my favourite place to explore in the US.

Things to Do in Denver, Colorado

Whether you’re looking for outdoor adventures, relaxing bars and restaurants, or something fun and unusual, you’ll find all this and more with the follow attractions in Denver.

Dine at Stout Street Social

We LOVED this restaurant on 14th street across the road from the Convention Centre, mostly for the delicious roasted brussel sprouts and the gluten free beer.

Drink Coffee at Pigtrain Coffee

I can’t say the coffee is as good as Australia, but it was way better than I remembered and most places had almond milk!

Attend the Chalk Art Festival

Artists come out and create their designs on the roads around Larimer Square. There was music and food and drinks and once again everyone is civilized and the vibe upbeat and happy.

Hire a bike and tour Denver

Denver is a flat city so perfect for bike riding. The city makes it easy for you with their share bike program, Denver Bcycle.
