First Friday Artwork in the Santa Fe Arts District, the city's first major art district, features art galleries, studios and creative spaces. South of downtown, the district is bordered by 13th Avenue on the north, Alameda on the south, Kalamath Street to the west and Inca to the east. Most galleries are walkable from one to another between 5th and 11th avenues. Gallery exploration can make you hungry and thirsty, so look for food trucks and many of the area's restaurants along 7th and 9th streets. Not every business stays open between 5:30 and 9:30 p.m. when the Art Walk takes place, but many do. No car? No problem. Take the light rail to the 10th and Osage stop. Because traffic can be heavy, public transportation or ride sharing are highly encouraged. A few free parking area are available on First Fridays only. Locations are on the district's website.
- Free Things to Do: "If you plan to bring a dog, check first with each gallery you want to visit. Some allow dogs in but others do not."
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: Art District on Santa Fe's First Friday Art Walk is a fine way to spend an evening and support Denver artists and food trucks.
