Denver is known as the Mile High City because it’s a mile above sea level (how convenient is that?), making it one of the highest cities in the entire United States. The city sits in the South Platte River Valley, surrounded by the Rocky Mountains to the west and the High Plains to the east. For those who prefer to be more reflective, there are numerous museums and other activities to choose from.
Mile High Stadium
Mile High Stadium has always been famous and well-known for hosting the Broncos – and even more so now that they’ve won another Super Bowl. In fact, the Broncos not only won back-to-back Super Bowls in 1997 and 1998, but also had the most wins in two seasons (33), the most playoff wins in two seasons (seven), and the most wins at all time. Also set pro football records. Three seasons (46, 1996 to 1998) playing at Mile High Stadium.
Stroll through Larimer Square, one of Denver’s most historic neighborhoods. It dates back to the 19th century when Colorado was all about gold and the famous gold strikes that helped put this beautiful state on the map. The square was once home to many ‘firsts’, including the city’s first bank, first dry goods store, first bookstore, first theater, and first post office! Some of the old buildings remain, but the newer buildings are just as nice and have some wonderful restaurants and shops selling unusual and one-of-a-kind gifts.
Denver Public Library
I’m always happy to recommend good libraries. Nothing beats losing myself in an hour or three of literary entertainment for me. You’ll feel the same way when you visit this extensive library, which includes more than 2 million items such as books, movies, DVDs, references, and photos. There are many informative avenues to explore for family members interested in Western history and genealogy. And don’t forget about the little ones; With a range of children’s storytime activities and a wonderful and well-designed kiddies area, everyone will be happy.
It is an ideal destination for the whole family. With one million gallons of water and over 500 species, an interactive stingray reef touch tank, a dive lounge, an aquarium restaurant, a Nautilus ballroom, and more, there’s plenty to keep you busy. The aquarium is very well designed and is a great way for young and old to learn about marine life while having fun together.
Children’s Museum Of Denver
Since its humble beginnings in a converted school bus in 1973, this wonderful museum has come a long way. Originally intended for children from birth to eight years old, it has evolved into a “must-see” destination for all ages, with the museum offering a variety of hands-on, unique, and engaging interactive opportunities such as That woodworking, rocket launching, and nature. Climbing and caves, and a grocery marketing station. For more information visit here:
