Things to Do in Denver

Downtown, you’ll find a host of choice Denver attractions vying for your attention. You’ll surely get your money’s worth at the century-old Denver Mint, the largest coin producer in the world. True numismatists will especially love the tour: Hear the thud of stamps on coils and the hiss of hot coins straight from the furnace. Peruse uncirculated coins and rare collections in the gift shop, then take your newfound treasures to historic Larimer Square. You won’t be able to use them for your evening revelry, but surrounded by the Square’s opulent boutiques and five-star restaurants, you won’t mind.

Many a Denver vacation has been planned around the great outdoors—and it is indeed difficult to resist its pull. Join your fellow intrepid explorers for a tour of the rugged landscapes of Rocky Mountain National Park, with 415 square miles of stunning peaks and forested vistas. Or perhaps you’ll sojourn a bit closer to your new home away from home with a journey to Red Rocks Park. Ponder the history and mysteries of mankind among the 250-million-year-old red sandstone cliffs, and stay for a night of entertainment at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre, if the mood strikes.

You may be a bold and gallant traveler, but you know how to wander wisely, too. Browse hotels in Denver on Travelocity, and you’ll undoubtedly be inspired to seek out the unique experiences that will make this getaway your own.
