What to Do In and Around Denver

what to do in denver guideMile High Delights

Stretching across Colorado is the Front Range - a prelude to the Rocky Mountains. This gathering of forests and streams dominates the northern corner of the state. Sandstone curls against the base, granite veins run deep, and shale formations are embedded with ancient fossils and designs. It's a collection of undeniable wonders, but not undeniable miles.

Travelers wishing to conquer streets instead of cliffs can journey to Front Range vacation rentals (refusing nature for concrete), because Colorado offers more than mere beauty. Instead, it provides variety.

Explore the Wild With the Denver Zoo

Centered on the Front Range is Denver - Colorado's capital and most populous city. Near Denver vacation rental houses, are endless attractions and events, but few can rival the Denver Zoo. Established in 1896, this facility spans 80 acres (which must impress, since it originally began as a way to house a singular bear cub who had been orphaned). Over 3,000 animals can be seen here, as well as 10 distinct eco-areas.

Discover Predator Ridge, with its African cats and hyenas. The Emerald Forest mimics gorilla environments. Experience face-to-face interactions at the Bird Propagation Center. Catch a show at the Encounters Outdoor Amphitheater. There is much to do, and the zoo is open daily. Group reservations are strongly recommended, however, due to the attraction's popularity.


Seek the Arts at the Fort Collins Lincoln Center

The Front Range twists along Colorado, and tucked at its northern border is Fort Collins. This university town offers spectacular scenery and a thriving cultural community - which is embodied in the Lincoln Center. This massive organization was built in 1978 and boasts a 1,810 seat Main Theater, three art galleries, multiple exhibition halls and a sculpture garden.

Within it guests can immerse themselves in music, film and dance. It's home to the Fort Collins Opera, the Larimer Chorale, the Children's Theater and the Pops Band. Every season offers a diverse collection of performances (both live and for the screen). Visitors are encouraged to consult with the box office for ticket information and hours, since reservations are required.

Indulge in Flavor at Black Forest Meadery

Nestled on the southern edge of the Front Range (in the shadow of Pikes Peak) are Colorado Springs vacation rentals. This picturesque city features a bustling downtown and endless park acres, but within it travelers will also find Black Forest Meadery. This winery provides exquisite flavors and breathtaking views. Explore the vineyards, learning how each grape is cared for. Sample one of the local brands, such as the popular Melody in the Meadows, which is honey-sweet and sure to please. Picnic on the grounds or enjoy a romantic evening in the tasting room. Black Forest will delight. No reservations are needed; however, all tours are reliant upon the weather.

See the Sights With a Denver Tour

The city of Denver is uncommon. Its history is matched only by its modern appeal; its charm is surpassed only by its variety. There's much to discover, and Colorado Adventure Segway Tours is best suited for that discovery. Explore the capital like never before, because routes are customized for you.

Glide through the districts and visit famed sites, such as the Avenue Theater, the Wells Fargo Center, the Molly Brown House and Sakura Square. Knowledgeable guides will explain the evolution of the city and lead you through its many streets. The views will be uncommon; the rewards will be many. All Segway Tours require reservations and individuals must be 12 or older to participate.

The Front Range is more than a collection of peaks. It's instead the gateway to variety. Seek Colorado for a true vacation.
