First there's the city itself. There are multiple art, history and science museums or centers with programs for all ages. There's a zoo and an aquarium and miles of bike paths, too. Seven, count 'em, seven professional sports teams call Denver home. Whether you're a fan of baseball, football, basketball, hockey, soccer, rugby or lacrosse there's a team to root for and a game to watch almost any time of year. Shopping is one of the most popular activities on the planet and Denver has opportunities for the consummate or casual shopper, from one-of-a-kind boutiques to top-drawer malls. And of course, no mention of attractions and activities in the Mile High City is complete without noting that Denver's city park system extends into the mountains, providing a rich dimension to the attractions list that few metropolitan areas can match. Winter Park, among other towns, offers superb skiing that can be as challenging or laid back as you like, and Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre has one of the world's most dynamic outdoor concert venues, to say nothing of hiking and biking amid a landscape of dramatic ancient formations. What's your pleasure?
