Are you always on the move looking for your next adventure? Or would you rather spend your days enriching your mind? Living in Denver provides the best of both worlds for everyone, because this city provides entertainment for every interest.
Denver provides quality entertainment for families with kids. Kids tend to want to go, go, go all the time, and this city’s beautiful parks offer more than just pretty scenery. There are opportunities to bike, run, hike, fish, rock climb, camp, boat and more all over the city and the outdoor fun is sure to keep older and adventurous kids entertained. If you’re looking for parks for younger children, check out Commons Park, Alamo Placita Park, or Melvin F. Silverman Park for playgrounds, picnic opportunities, and gorgeous scenery. Denver boasts over four thousand acres of city parks, so go out and explore them all! Don’t forget Fido, because Denver is ranked as the most dog-friendly city in the country, with tons of restaurants, coffee shops, and parks that are certifiably dog friendly.
In addition, you can cross grocery shopping off your list by checking out Denver’s farmer’s market by picking up some fresh produce and flowers.
Another form of obvious outdoor entertainment in Denver are, of course, the Rocky Mountains. Not many cities can brag about having a major mountain range in their backyard, and the Rockies are perfect for hiking, skiing, snowboarding, and other outdoor adventures.
Looking for indoor activities? Check out the Museum of Natural History and Science, Denver Art Museum, or Museum of Contemporary Art for an enriching day for all ages. Most museums offer free admission days throughout the year as well, so that you can plan your day of entertainment for free.
Speaking of entertainment, whether or not you’re a fan of Denver sports, these teams will always put up a good show. Check out the Rockies, Spurs, Broncos, Nuggets, or Rapids for some high-energy action. And hey, if sports aren’t your thing, Denver tailgates will bring you to the games anyway. It’s always a good day to be a sports fan in Denver!
