Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge

Reviewed By Sarah S - Denver, Colorado, United States

This is a cool attraction I don't think a lot of Denver citizens have visited. It's actually one of the largest urban wildlife sanctuaries in the country, with over 330 species of wildlife. There are great hiking trails, bird-watching opportunities, and even bison. We did Lake Ladora Loop, which is 1.8 miles. It goes by lakes, marshes, and ponds and has a floating boardwalk! We hiked for quite a while, and then took about a half hour drive around the outside to see more animals. There are also kids' activity pamphlets available outside the main building in boxes with maps.

Dick's Sporting Goods Park

Reviewed By A TripAdvisor Member

We booked tickets for the LA Galaxy vs Rapids game in order for our son to see LA, his favorite team. We had seats directly behind the LA bench. There were many open seats and unruly fans started moving down. Their language and actions toward their own team and refs was atrocious. There were other younger children in the area as well. There was no sportsmanship from the fans. We come from a town with terribly critical fans but our fans paled in comparison.
Contrary to the fans, the stadium, employees and ease of entrance and exit were terrific - no fee for parking was a nice surprise!

This is one of our favorite weekend destinations in Denver. It's a beautifully kept, fascinating place with various types of gardens, fantastic flowers, tucked-away corners with benches, reflection pools, fountains, ponds, and a jaw-dropping tropical greenhouse. There are regular sculpture and art exhibits, concerts, a couple of great little restaurants, some great permanent exhibits. There is a children's garden that is fun for kids under 10, the gift shop has really nice things, and the annual plan sales are great.

Goldstrike Adventures

Reviewed By KevinInColorado - Centennial, Colorado

I spent a half day with Goldstrike and had a great time. Both Don and Ryan were fun, patient teachers. They have a whole variety of well maintained prospecting gear for you to try out too. They also know a lot about the mining history of the area and seem to love telling stories about the old timers who first discovered gold here, etc.


If you visit and want some hands on, family friendly outdoor activity where you pan out your own souvenir sign up for an adventure!!

Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art

Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art has relocated to a new golden building in Denver’s Golden Triangle Creative District. The museum’s new building offers visitors an enhanced experience with more display space while staying true to the salon style and intimate atmosphere for which the Kirkland is known. The museum’s three collections are: • International Decorative Art—A celebrated collection including notable examples of every major design period from Arts & Crafts to Postmodern. • Colorado & Regional Art—The largest repository of art showcasing the state and region’s talent, concentrating on the 1840s through the 1990s with about 7,000 works more than 700 artists. • Vance Kirkland Retrospective—Kirkland (1904–1981) is generally considered Colorado’s most distinguished modern painter. About 550 paintings and about 600 drawings and prints are held in his estate collection. Note: Due to the fragile nature of the collections children must be 13 or older to be admitted.

Coors Field

A modern stadium with an old-fashioned feel, this is one of the National League's first new parks built exclusively for baseball since 1962.

Reviewed By Jake V - Denver, Colorado

Newer construction allows for people to flow freely. You can still get good tickets cheaper than places like Yankees stadium or Wrigley field. Beer is predictably expensive and the food is predictably greasy. HOWEVER!!!!! You can bring some of your own and buy them out front. That’s a nice treat in my opinion

The Denver Mountain parks include a variety of locations, though all within the mountains. I never let visitors to Colorado go without seeing Red Rocks Amphitheater. In addtiion to its one of a kind setting, it has fabulous views of the city of Denver.
