Bear Creek Lake Park
Whether you want to fish from the shore, take to a boat, or simply take a dip in the water, make Bear Creek Lake Park your number one destination for outdoor activities. There are several trails around the area, plus an archery range and bridleways.
Fifty-Two 80’s is a kooky antique shop takes you back to the 80s and early 90s. The whole place is dedicated to bygone pop culture, so here is where to go for toys, clothes, and memorabilia. From vintage Pepsi cans to New Kids on the Block posters, you’ll be inundated with nostalgia.
16th Street Mall
There’s something a little magical about 16th Street Mall. The wealth of shopping opportunities and 42 outdoor cafes already make it one of the best Denver activities, but the place really comes alive at night. Under the lights twinkling in more than 200 trees, shoppers are taken up and down the mall in horse-drawn carriages and pedicabs.
Visit One of Denver’s Art Districts
Denver has seven Art Districts. The Art District on Santa Fe is Denver’s artistic hub, with over 30 galleries, artist’s studios, and restaurants to check out. Culture vultures can explore everything from contemporary paintings to sculpture, photography, graphic art, textiles, and mixed media. You’ll also want to check out the Denver Art Museum, Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, and the Molly Brown House Museum within the Golden Triangle Creative District.
Denver Sports Teams
You can visit the Sports Authority Field at Mile High to see the Denver Broncos triumph. Or why not head to the Pepsi Center to see the Colorado Avalanche take to the ice or the Denver Nuggets take to the hardwood?
