Denver in the Summer

Here are some of my favorite things to do in metro Denver in the summer:

  • Catch a baseball game at Coors Field watching the Colorado Rockies perform
    “mile high magic”
  • Experience the history of Colorado at the new History Colorado Center
  • Spend a day at Elitch Gardens one of the oldest theme parks in America (in 2010 Elitch Gardens celebrated it’s 120th year)
  • Listen to world famous musicians play at Red Rocks Amphitheater
  • Take a ride down the Alpine Slide at Heritage Square
  • Watch an outdoor movie with over 10,000 people at Red Rocks Amphitheater (“Film on the Rocks”)
  • Visit the new Toyota Elephant Passage and the animals at the Denver Zoo
  • Go to the art galleries on Santa Fe for the Art Walk (the first Friday of every month)
  • Read a book under a tree in any park in metro Denver
  • Go shopping on the 16th Street mall, Cherry Creek or Aspen Grove
  • Of course any activity in the mountains (biking, driving, hiking) is always fun!
  • Spend a day on a boat at Chatfield Reservoir or Cherry Creek Reservoir
  • See coins being made at the Denver Mint (one of only two mints in the U.S.)
  • Visit the Free Parade of Homes around metro Denver
