    There was so much to see here, different trees, plants and other things. These gardens are well worth a visit but wear comfortable shoes. The car park gets full very quickly but we were able to find street parking a short walk away

    Red Rock Amphitheater is a majestic outdoor concert venue nestled amid towering red boulders. The brilliant idea of placing the stage in this natural desert setting creates an unparalleled ambiance. Each seat offers a breathtaking view not only of the performers but also of the vast valley stretching out behind the stage. As the music echoes through the canyons, you can't help but be awestruck by the stunning backdrop. Red Rock Amphitheater leaves you mesmerized by the seamless fusion of music and nature.

    This is a top notch zoo with an outstanding, passionate staff who are very visible and knowledgeable. So frequently, I search for someone to answer questions but not here. Volunteers and keepers alike readily engage guests, even while doing clean up duty.

    Admission is timed and cost is in line with most zoos. Admission does include access to the Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun. Parking is free.

    The zoo has beautiful grounds but is challenging hiking both due to altitude and grade. Be prepared to get a work out and take your time getting around. Be aware, there is current ongoing construction for expansion/new habitats so there is some noise and the bears aren't visible at this time. As they say, 'pardon our dust while we grow'.

    There are many unique opportunities to experience different enrichment and educational presentations. Check the schedule for the day. Not to be missed is the giraffe feeding. This is unique in that no one's constantly saying 'Don't touch the giraffe' or telling you how to feed them. Some even appear to crave a little head scratch. Don't miss the opportunity to feed snacks to Jumbe, the black rhino, or Lucky, the elephant. (Just remember you're not paying for the lettuce and carrot. You're supporting the conservation effort here at the zoo and around the world). These are just a few of the experiences you can partake in.

    The meerkats and their meerkittens are always fun to watch...they have two litters of youngsters right now. You also might get a look at two 'new' joeys in Australia Walk About. Expansive elephant yard and state-of-the-art barn. Rocky Mountain Wild is an awesome section devoted to area wildlife. Don't miss the mountain goats. Maybe Blanca will be posing at the top of the mountain for you. All in all, an outstanding zoo to spend the day at.

    This was an amazing one for many reasons. One, the sections were good, well distributed and we even had an Egyptian Artifacts section. Two, the two shows (Additional) that I saw were amazing namely Cities of Future and Destination SOlar System. They are recommended. Three, the museum shop was good and had very good options. Four, they had a very nice food court to enjoy. Five, they had a workshop on for "how do they create replica of real artifacts" and preserve them forever. I could go on and on but its worth visiting. You would need >3 hours to cover all of it and in some cases >5 hours if you want to see everything in detail. Going early in the morning is recommended so you can cover as much before the school tours come in. Tickets are available online and there was some discount for off peak hours which is a bonus. Overall, Highly recommended.

    This is a museum where old aircraft has been reconstructed to the point where they actually can fly. At least that's what have been told during the guided tour.. More interesting for me was the extensive coverage of all regions of the war.

    Coors Field is home to the Colorado Rockies. Like many modern MLB teams, the venue is located near the downtown hub. Concessions are good. Stadium is very easy to access (we did the RTD - local bus line). If you are in the Denver area and the Rockies are playing this would be a great visit.

    Make sure you know about the timed entry permit system , be prepared to pay $30, and check for road closure ( depending on the time of year). We were visiting at the end of September so we had to be careful that the road was going to be open. It closed for a few hours the week before we arrived but we were blessed with unusually warm weather. We went to Beaver meadows entry station around 8:10am and it was a 10 minute wait to enter. The road is well paved and with good visibility it was not dangerous or concerning in any way. We were able to park at all the places we chose to stop although some were getting busy.
    The views of the mountain ranges are beautiful but my favourite stop was the Tundra Community Trail near the Rock Cut. This short trail was difficult for me as I was feeling wobbly due to the altitude but I loved the bleak, exposed landscape. It was pretty chilly up there too! Bring warm clothes. Alpine Visitor Centre is a a great stop with good views, nice merchandise, a cafe, rest rooms etc. We reached the Colorado River Trailhead around 12:30pm where we had a picnic and a walk along the river before heading to GrandLake.

    Union station is gorgeous but they are doing updates inside. But you can see the beauty. It was timeless and I will definitely come again.

    Visited the Biophilia "Nature Reimagined" at Denver Art Museum. The exhibit explores the transformative role of contemporary architects, artists, and designers play connecting us to the natural world. Fantastic exhibit well worth your time to visit. One of the features is the new Populus Hotel just down the street from the museum. The exterior of the hotel is almost complete with one of the last exterior panels being placed today.
