Bull & Bush Pub & Brewery

Reviewed By A TripAdvisor Member - Sidmouth, United Kingdom

Visited on a Saturday night and sat at the bar. The locals are very friendly!

13 different beers brewed by Bull and Bush brewery and another 25+ available from other brewers.

Steak special on Saturday night - very good and the jacket potato was undoubtedly the largest single potato I have ever seen in my life!

Sport available on TV as well if you want to watch.

Definitely recommended

Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour

Reviewed By Kevin M

We really enjoyed the tour and the tastings! Just not come on an empty stomach or you may get a little loopy! Really a great place to bring a date. We thought the bar was well priced for their flights of whiskey. Staff really makes it a memorial experience!

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.

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

This museum felt so comfortable and relaxing. We found something that interested everyone in our six-member group. The children's ages are 6, 11 and 13. The food court offers alternative options, with sustainable cutlery, a generous salad bar and lovely desserts. The coffee was great, too. I highly recommend you sent aside an entire day to visit this museum.

Denver Art Museum

Known for its wide range of Native American art, this museum also contains the only major Asian art collection in the Rocky Mountains.

Reviewed By tadriva - Fresno, California

The Denver Art Museum is very good museum with a great Degas exhibit right now. To go into the Degas exhibit you'll need to pay an additional fee (about $15 each, well worth it). The museum's architecture is spectacular. I would recommend this museum for anyone, including families. Plenty to do for kids.

Washington Park

Reviewed By Erin G - Denver, Colorado, United States

Join the joggers, walkers, and cyclists in this popular (and crowded) city park for your daily exercise or just admire the views of the mountains. There's a big pond where you can rent paddle boats. It's a great place for photography at sunset. Grab coffee at Wash Perk two blocks down on Iowa. It's many residents' go-to place for their exercise.

Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception

Reviewed By AdrienneSip - Englewood, Colorado

We attended a Sunday mass and I expected to spend the sermon staring at the gorgeous windows featuring a radiant Mary... but I was pleasantly surprised to be totally absorbed in Fr. Fransico's sermon! The group of parishioners was fairly diverse and the choir was lovely.
If you are in town, this will be a wonder worship experience.
