Things to Do in Denver

Updated: Jan 16

Nestled against the majestic backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, Denver, often dubbed the "Mile-High City," is a vibrant metropolis that seamlessly blends urban sophistication with the rugged beauty of the great outdoors. From its diverse neighborhoods and cultural attractions to its thriving food scene and outdoor adventures, Denver offers a unique experience for locals and visitors alike.

Denver's elevation of exactly one mile above sea level is more than just a geographical quirk; it's an integral part of the city's identity. To truly feel on top of the world, head to the Colorado State Capitol and climb the steps to stand exactly one mile above sea level while enjoying breathtaking views of the city.

Immerse yourself in Denver's rich cultural scene by exploring the city's numerous museums, galleries, and theaters. The Denver Art Museum showcases a diverse collection of art, while the historic Larimer Square offers a glimpse into the city's past with its charming architecture and vibrant atmosphere.

Denver's culinary scene reflects the city's eclectic vibe. Whether you're savoring creative brunch dishes in the trendy LoDo district or exploring the diverse offerings of the food trucks at Civic Center Eats, Denver's dining options cater to every palate.


Some of our favorite brunch spots are:

  • Snooze, an A.M. Eatery: Known for its creative and delicious breakfast and brunch options.

I visited Denver in October and went to Mimosas for brunch. It’s Black-owned and DELICIOUS! Loved the service as well. Saucy’s Southern BBQ & Cuisine was tasty and Black-owned as well, but not a brunch spot. 🫶🏽
