Things to do in Denver and Nearby
Headed to the Mile High City and wondering what to do?
There are plenty of cool places and things to do while in Denver and we are going to share some with you.
Take a seat and maybe some notes for your next trip.
Red Rocks Amphitheatre
By far the place you don’t wanna miss while in Denver! Red Rocks Amphitheatre is an open-air amphitheatre built into a rock structure, 10 miles west of Denver.
The giant sandstone walls of the theatre are higher than the Niagara Falls! Many notable performances and recordings for film have taken place here. So, I think it’s safe to say that this may be the place where you’d like to see your favorite band play. Just imagine how epic that would look like.
Check out the next events at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
Colorado State Capitol building
Constructed in the 1890 with real gold gifted by the local gold miners, this is one of the most emblematic and definitely must-visit buildings in Denver.
It is a massive building, but with a very elegant combination of marble, oak, brass and murals.
You can do free tours of the inside of the building or just take a walk to admire and be inspired by its beauty.
Sports Fan? Go see a Sporting Event
Good news, you have some options here and it will be an amazing experience!
If you are into baseball Colorado Rockies at Coors Field is something you don’t wanna miss! The Rockies have entered the 2007 World Series as winners of 21 of their last 22 games.
If you prefer american football, get a seat and watch the Denver Broncos at Empower Field.
How about Hockey, get your seat in a seat and watch the Colorado Avalanche at Ball Arena.
Maybe NBA is your jam, check out a Denver Nuggets game! Denver truly has it all for whatever sports you’re in to!
Go to The Ball Arena for a Concert

Rino Art district
River North Art District (named Rino) features contemporary art galleries in revamped industrial buildings. You can also find a bunch of colorful food markets and tons of craft beverages.
This is the place to visit if you are looking for some street art / instagrammable places with lots of vibrant murals and hip cocktail lounges.
But whatever you do, don’t forget to taste the Colorado Style Pizza! The savagely thick, cheesy and soft pizza is also known as the Mountain Pie. You’ll thank us later!
