Enjoy mountains of fun in the Mile High City

Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Denver features a majestic backdrop of craggy and snow-capped peaks. Surrounded by natural wonders and more than 20,000 acres of pristine parkland, a Denver vacation rental is a great jumping-off point for those in search of outdoor adventures and year-round recreational activities. But at its core, Denver is a bustling metropolis, whose downtown plays host to a slew of major cultural institutions, from renowned museums to heralded theaters. No matter your interests, you're sure to find plenty for your crew to do in this city.

Going downhill fast—skiing (and walking) adventures

Nature enthusiasts will love with the 330-acre City Park, where they can view wildlife at the Denver Zoo and play with interactive exhibits at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Want to exercise more than just your brain? The park also features tennis courts, playing fields, and 2 lakes with walking trails. Give your credit card a workout at the 16th Street Mall, a 1.25-mile outdoor shopping center with 300 stores and over 50 restaurants. If you can pull yourself away from your Denver vacation rental, make the 1-hour drive to the nearby ski resorts in the Rocky Mountains.

From culture vultures to tykes, there's fun for everyone

Theater lovers have something to sing and dance about at the enormous, 16-block Denver Theatre District. Take in an opera, ballet, or Broadway show at the 12-acre Denver Performing Arts Complex and end the night with a drink at a late-night hotspot. Little ones will have fun at the Children's Museum of Denver and come face-to-face with wildlife at the Downtown Aquarium. If you book a Denver vacation rental from May through October, make sure you carve out time for Elitch Gardens, a 65-acre amusement park with a water park and more than 50 rides.

Let there be light! When the sun shines even in the snow

While it might have a reputation as a winter wonderland—and it does get more than 60 inches of snow each year—Denver also offers 300-plus days of annual sunshine. Heavy snow usually falls between October and April, but daytime highs in the winter often hover around the relatively mild mid-40 range. Things heat up in the summer but, even then, pleasant temperatures rarely exceed the mid-80s. Late spring and early fall also feature cozy conditions with daytime highs in the 60s and 70s. The city doesn't get a lot of rain, but the wettest period is between April and August.

Rocky Mountain high! Denver's wild world of nature

Tucked away in the lush South Platte River Valley, with the Rocky Mountains to the west and the High Plains to the east, Denver is known for its breathtakingly beautiful natural landscape. The city features countless trails, giving you the chance to soak up the majestic scenery, famously set 1 mile above sea level. If you're feeling adventurous, make the 90-minute drive to Rocky Mountain National Park, where bighorn sheep, black bears, and moose make their home amid a land filled with snow-capped mountains, glaciers, rivers, streams, and lakes.
