Denver offers the perfect blend of sports and arts. Impressive public parks such as Washington Park and City Park offer lakes, gardens, playing fields and more. During warm weather months, the Lakeside and Elitch Gardens amusement parks are open for fun. The U.S. Mint, Denver Art Museum, Children's Museum of Denver, and Denver Museum of Nature & Science are just some of the museums to check out during your stay. Denver does have a public transportation system to take advantage of, but the easiest way to see the city is to rent a car in Denver.
