Denver is a bustling metropolis in the Rocky Mountains and also the capital of Colorado. The Mile High City has a lot to offer residents and visitors alike from outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, and rock climbing. Denver is also the cultural epicenter of the region offering visitors access to world-class museums, performing arts, and award-winning cuisine.
If you’re not into the outdoors, the city offers many opportunities for exploring unique neighborhoods like The Art District on Santa Fe (where you can enjoy the monthly First Friday Art Walks), Cherry Creek (the destination for anyone who loves to visit high-end retailers), and the River North Arts District, nicknamed RiNo (featuring contemporary art galleries and hip concert venues).
The high altitude can take some adjustment if traveling from sea level. It’s important to stay hydrated—dry skin is a very common problem here. To combat this, visitors can treat themselves to a spa service at one of Denver’s many spas for rest, rejuvenation, and pampering. With its sunny, high-desert climate, Denver is a destination for any time of the year. Check out our Colorado spa guide to discover the best spas in Denver.
