Things to Do in Denver, Colorado
Dining and Shopping in Denver
Denver restaurants, galleries, and shops pepper 20 diverse neighborhoods. From the stately Victorian mansions of Capitol Hill and the rich African-American culture of historic Five Points, to the quaint, tree-lined streets of Old South Gaylord and Old South Pearl. The area’s laid-back attitude and class are exemplified in the art districts and communities surrounding downtown.
Meanwhile, the heart of downtown is still the 16th Street Mall, a mile-long pedestrian promenade lined with restaurants, shops and seasonal programming. Free hop-on-hop-off shuttle buses leave either end of the Mall every 90 seconds, making everything downtown easy to reach. Check out Colfax Avenue, the Golden Road history. At 26.5 miles long, it’s the longest commercial street in the U.S.
At the end of the Mall is LoDo, a hip historic district with a vibrant nightlife. LoDo is overflowing with more than 200 bars, lounges, brew pubs, jazz cafés, restaurants and music clubs. In 2007, the neighborhood welcomed the stunning new Museum of Contemporary Art. Attracting some of the nation’s top talent and offering a staggering rooftop view of the beautiful skyline.
Nearby, the Cherry Creek Shopping District is a village within the city, filled with nearly 500 shops, independent boutiques, cafés, restaurants, and galleries.
The Denver Music Scene
Check out the music scene, with some of the best sounds – from top acts to independent artists – that can be heard nationwide. The world-renowned Red Rocks Amphitheatre welcomes a new music season each summer, along with weekly outdoor films from late May to mid-August.
For the more sports-minded, MLB’s Colorado Rockies, play at the centrally located Coors Field in LoDo. Denver hosts seven professional sports teams in total, including the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche, the NFL’s Denver Broncos and the NBA’s Denver Nuggets.
