    Very good botanic garden. Lots of variety, but some of our favorites were the Tropical dome and Japanese Garden (with Bonsai exhibit.). We got there right at opening, so it wasn't too busy, however we noticed it was quite busy when we left. Plan on spending 1 1/2 to 2 hours easy.

    Mount Evans is a beautiful view, I believe it's a "14er", but not positive. The good thing about this trip is you can drive all the way up, so you get all the benefits of a 14er without the strenuous hike that usually goes along with it.

    The station itself is truly gorgeous and historical. It was a nice way to end an afternoon of touring the city. We got a burger and beer and rested our feet and bodies amid the historic walls. Parking was a nightmare so we ended-up just doing Valet. Pricey, but worth it.

    We try to visit MLB parks when we are in a city and this one is really good. Good sight lines and a great variety of food (which, I felt was reasonably priced for ballpark food.). Good place to see a game.

    We drove up. It was scary, but the views are unbelievable along the way. My husband did the driving and he’s a very good driver and grew up with narrow roads , but he got really nervous at som of the switchbacks and steep stretches.

    Overall, this is a good experience, there's a lot to see and truly something for everyone. Especially strong section on design and indigenous Americans. A little weak on great European art from its peak period - particularly compared to giants like Getty, Art Institute of Chicago, National Gallery, Boston, et al. Same with Asia - China, Japan, Korea, SE Asia. Arms and armor far too crowded to enjoy - tried it twice several hours apart. However, if you really wish to take everything in, you can spend the entire day and won't be bored. Signage at some points left me feeling like everyone has forever been oppressed, generally by white men - who knows, maybe that's been the case for 2000 years - or this is a singular impression of a mood on one specific day - please don't let an observation as an aside deter you from this wide ranging experience - you will find things you haven't seen or thought of before, and that, after all, is the point.

    Had a great tour and tasting with Katie Sue and her faithful companion Henry Butters. She was personable, funny, and knew her whiskey! The tour takes you through the whiskey making process and you get to taste a variety of Stranahan’s offerings along the way. If you want to go make sure to get a reservation. Afterwards stop

    We are zoo/aquarium people, and we were not disappointed at all with this one. Very good habitats set up for the various animals. If you like zoos, make this a must-see.

    Loved the do-it-yourself tour. The number of people in the house was limited by timed entrance, so one could meander through the tour and read things that were of interest. The house is beautiful and the history of Mrs. Brown is well told. The tour is long enough, but not overwhelming.

    Really cool place - great collection of classic cars (many in original condition) but also lots of other cool vehicles - from trains to planes to motorcycles. Docents are very knowledgeable and friendly.

    Head to elegant Larimer Square for shops, people-watching, and dinner. Larimer Square is the city’s oldest and most historic part of town where the first gold prospectors from the Old West era staked their claim.

    There’s a relaxed vibe and it’s the perfect part of town to chill into your weekend in Denver. You’ll find hip coffee bars, urban boutiques and exclusive stores, and maybe some street performers. For dinner, take your pick from a great range of chef-led restaurants or one of the many different cuisines available.

    I went with my partner who is a huge Broncos fan. It was actually really interesting and I had a fun time touring the stadium too. The tour guide was really cool and had some great facts. Would recommend

    This is an excellent park with a lake, play areas, large fields, jogging / biking trail, and small botanical garden. My only gripe would be the port a johns need to be serviced more frequently and the jungle gym, which was apparently vandalized, needs to be repaired.

    While we found that the museum was a bit Denver-centric, we did enjoy learning about Colorado history. The best exhibit was the telling of Colorado history in 100 objects. A very creative approach to telling the broad story of Colorado history through individual stories and objects.
