The best things to do in Denver

Looking for fun things to do in Denver? Here are eight great spots we love to visit:

  • Ball Arena: Home to the Denver Nuggets, the Colorado Avalanche, and the Colorado Mammoth, plus concerts and other events, this downtown Denver arena always has something to see.
  • Empower Field at Mile High: Appropriately shaped like a horseshoe, this stadium hosts the NFL’s Denver Broncos and is known for having some of the loudest fans in the league.
  • Red Rocks Amphitheatre: One of the most distinctive open-air venues in the country, Red Rocks stuns with its sandstone monoliths and only-in-Colorado acoustics.
  • Comedy Works South: This comedy club in Greenwood Village is a fun place to see well-known comedians on national tours, as well as up-and-coming acts from the local scene.
  • High Line Canal Trail: Winding through Denver’s southern suburbs, this multiuse trail — pedestrians, cyclists, and equestrians welcome — follows a canal for more than 70 miles. Hop on at the Belleview Trailhead near the hotel.
  • Marjorie Park: With dozens of works from the Museum of Outdoor Arts, this park on the north side of Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre is worth a stroll. It’s currently open only for scheduled events and tours, so check the calendar before visiting.
  • Levitt Pavilion Denver: Another great amphitheater in town, this one hosts free all-ages concerts during the summer. Head to a grassy hillside in Ruby Hill Park with a blanket and a picnic meal and enjoy the show.
  • Mount Blue Sky: Drive to the summit of 14,130-foot Mount Blue Sky (formerly known as Mount Evans) on the highest paved road in North America. Along the way, you’ll see jagged peaks and glacier-carved valleys — and you may even spot mountain goats, bighorn sheep, and marmots.
