Ah, good old Denver. The Mile High City. The Wall Street of the West. The illustrious, booming capital of Colorado. There remains so much to see and do in this area of Mid-West America; you’d be hard pressed to conquer it all in a single lifetime. Indeed, the title of the Andy Garcia movie "Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead" suggests that it may even be worth temporarily returning from the afterlife to experience some more of the joys that the city has to offer.
Despite the way in which the city provides enjoyment for its residents all year round, many Denver citizens will have no qualms about telling you that summertime is when the Mile High City really hits its peak. Whoever first said that "the best things in life are free" probably had sunshine on their mind at the time. In Denver you don’t have to have a fistful of cash to enjoy the sizzling heat. All you need is an open mind - and plenty of energy.
Music, Art, Nature... & So Much More
Live music shimmers out from City Park whenever the sun comes out to play, with many bands congregating in the area. A staggering amount of festivals also pop up over the summer, including Cherry Blossom Festival and the Elway’s Tastes & Tunes Summer Music Series. For culture-vultures, the Art Walks that take place between July and September on Santa Fe Drive offer an inspirational experience complete with music, whereas those with an appetite are free to wander the fresh-smelling farmers’ markets all across the city.
Elsewhere, a day out to Denver Zoo costs as little as $12 and is perfect for keeping the kids happy, while the 88 Drive-In Theatre offers an old school-style slice of summer in the city. Excitement can also be had just a few miles south of the city at Roxborough State Park, where visitors can venture deep into the heart of wild American nature amid the glorious sunshine.
