It’s all about the outdoors in the Mile-High City. Explore expansive parks like Washington Park, the Cherry Creek Bike Path and City Park. Bike and hike in the summer or snowshoe and ski in the winter at any number of nearby mountains. Or take a day trip to Mount Evans, just 50 miles from town.
Beer aficionado? Check out top breweries like the Great Divide, Denver Brewing Co. and Breckenridge Brewery – all renowned for crafting award-winning IPAs, Stouts and Scotch Ale. There's lots for foodies, too. Denver has fantastic restaurants that focus on locally sourced cuisine, skillfully paired with local brews. Denver's performing arts scene is tops in the mountain region. Ballet, opera and lots of theater companies perform year-round. The Museum of Nature & Science is hugely popular, with activities for all ages. The Denver Art Museum features an eclectic collection including Native, modern and Asian art.
Legal marijuana is another draw, with companies offering tours of grow rooms and dispensaries, and even cannabis cooking classes. Rocky Mountain High, indeed.
