A Wild West town turned hub for outdoors activities, music, sports, and beer, Denver’s done quite a job of reinventing itself throughout the years—although that doesn’t mean it’s lost all of its Old West charm. There are plenty of glimpses of the wilder past of Denver (especially its amazing 19th century architecture), but there are also plenty of modern touches, too. While you may be drawn to the charm and history of this amazing city, the chic gastropubs to the huge number of breweries, cafes, and boutiques could be the reason you stick around.
On top of all the amazing things to do inside Denver, there’s also plenty to do outside of the city—especially when it comes to the great outdoors. With mountain towns (and accompanying ski resorts) galore, and an equally impressive number of parks and natural areas within day-trip range, you’ll do well to pack your boots and outdoor gear for a day (or more) of outside sublimity. And when you’re done exploring, kick back with a drink at the watering hole of your choice. Just be warned: you might have a hard time trying to not do the same thing the next day.
