Denver is an outdoor lover’s paradise and makes a great starting spot for travelers venturing into the Rockies. Anyone seeking a mountain experience can spend a day driving along the Mount Evans Scenic Byway. Denver is also home to several museums, galleries and restaurants. Sports fans are drawn to the lights of Coors Field and Sports Authority Field at Mile High, while families can spend hours exploring the Denver Museum of Nature & Science or the Denver Zoo. For a taste of old-time Denver, spend some time in Larimer Square – also a good place to sample some of the city’s cuisine and, of course, beer.
