This is a typical itinerary for this product
Pass By: Union Station, Wynkoop St, Denver, CO 80202, USA
We wanted to call this The Selfie Tour, given all the great photo opportunities we will pass along our route; from the Colorado state flags spanning across Larimer Square to the Iconic Blue Bear, four-storey Dancing Aliens (okay, they’re called "The Dancers"), the D&F clock tower and the eclectic sculptures along the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall, your Instagram account will thank you for taking this tour. Your tour launches from Union Station, a focal point in the rapid growth of Denver during its early years.
Pass By: Confluence Park, 2250 15th St, Denver, CO 80202
We’ll move towards Cherry Creek; one of the two rivers which flow into Confluence Park and site of the original settlements around what would later become the Denver we know today. Cherry Creek used to be a dumping ground but it has been transformed in recent years into a family playground and kayaking paradise. The river flows alongside the main commuter path that attracts most of Denver’s local bikers and joggers.
Pass By: Larimer Square, 1430 Larimer St, Denver, CO 80202-1739
Weaving back into town, it’s time for a snack and we think our favorite French creperie is the perfect solution no matter whether you’re looking for something sweet or savory. From there it’s a quick walk to the original site of Denver City (St. Charles), which eventually merged with the encampment on the opposite side of Cherry Creek (Auraria). Here we explore the back alleys, pointing out a speakeasy or two you might want to try later. Once we are fully acquainted with the best of Larimer Square, it’s time to get your selfie sticks ready.

Pass By: Sculpture Park, 1848, 1736 Speer Blvd, Denver, CO 80204
Next up is a stroll through Sculpture Park, home to Denver’s famous 50-foot sculpture “The Dancers.”
Pass By: The Denver Center for the Performing Arts, 1101 13th St Theatres are located at 14th & Curtis streets, Denver, CO 80204-5319
After we’ve exhausted all possible angles, we’ll cut through Denver’s Performing Arts Complex, where we’ll check to see what’s playing tonight on any one of the multiple stages.
Pass By: The Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th St, Denver, CO 80202, USA
The selfie opportunities are not over, not by a long way! Our next stop is an epic selfie with “Big Blue,” the three-storey blue bear, which peers into the Colorado Convention Center. This giant and universally loved artwork is officially named, “I see what you mean.”
Pass By: 16th Street Mall, 16th St, Denver, CO 80202
From here the tour makes its way over to the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall (not really a mall, despite the name), which spans downtown and is lined with eclectic art, street performers and public entertainment. A tour of Denver wouldn’t be complete without showcasing the works of some of our most creative local artists. We’ll make a stop at the I Heart Denver store; everything inside was created in Denver, funnily enough.
Pass By: Colorado State Capitol, 200 E Colfax Ave, Denver, CO 80203-1776
Another must-do during your stay is a visit to the US Geological Survey’s official geological pinpoint of 5,280 feet, which confirms the city’s location, one mile above sea level.
Pass By: Daniels and Fisher Tower, 1601 Arapahoe St, Denver, CO 80202-2015
Once everyone has the perfect selfie at exactly one-mile-high, the 16th Street shuttle will scoot us down to the famous Daniels and Fisher clock tower.
We finish our tour with a quick shuttle ride back to Union Station, where you can continue your exploration of Denver’s great food, drink and entertainment offerings.
