Dine in style, appriciate modern works of public art, experience the Old West vibe and play in the Rockies on holidays to Denver

Life in Denver revolves around the outdoors with red rock al fresco entertainment venues, over 5000 acres of public parks and gardens, and the year-round playground of the Rocky Mountains right on the doorstep. The city has a thriving cultural scene too with more museums, galleries and public art works than you could dream of, eclectic performing arts venues and an incredible number of world-class restaurants. This is very much a 21st-Century city, but one with a Old West edge. You can shop for cowboy hats and brass buckles at Rockmount Ranch Wear – a Denver institution since 1909 – see cattle being driven through the Downtown streets each January and visit the resting place of one of the the country's most famous cowboys, Buffalo Bill.

  • Lower Downtown (or LoDo), the city's oldest neighbourhood, is a entertainment, shopping and dining hub
  • The Rocky Mountains are everpresent and a great place for outdoor adventures
  • Denver is the capital of craft beer. More beers are brewed here than in any other city in the country
  • There are over 200 parks including the 330-acre City Park
  • An eclectic range of museums, galleries and performing arts venues such as the impressive Red Rock Amphitheatre
