Denver is enjoying a moment in the spotlight as a major destination for families and people looking to relocate somewhere affordable with a ton of amenities. And it makes sense with 300 days of sunshine per year, a reasonable cost of living, and gorgeous sweeping views of the Rocky Mountains!
If you’re considering a trip or maybe even a move to Denver, here are three amazing ways to experience Denver during your visit.
1. Enjoy the Great Outdoors
If you want to get outside and get moving, Denver has you covered! Venture just outside the city for world-class fishing, hiking trails, and 85 miles of bike trails. Not super into hiking? Take in a concert or try a yoga class at Red Rocks Amphitheater and enjoy all the beauty of the mountains without the hike!
Prefer to stick to the city? Check out the 24-acre urban oasis at Denver Botanic Gardens, or walk the Mile-High Trail in City Park. True to its name, the Mile-High Trail follows the city’s 5280 contour line, so you’re exercising at exactly a mile high!
2. Cheer on the Local Teams
If you’re a sports fan, Denver might be a little slice of heaven! WalletHub ranked it the 8th best sports city in the U.S. in 2022, yet it’s the smallest city to have all five major league sports franchises represented. In fact, Denver is one of only 10 cities in the country to have NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, and MLS teams, so locals can enjoy sports year-round.
Whether you love attending games in person or prefer cheering your team on from a sports bar or pub, you’ll find a ton of options. Plus, Denver has more breweries than any other city in America, so you can root for your new home teams while you try out some fantastic food and local craft beers. And speaking of food…
3. Check out the Food Scene
Denver isn’t just sports and outdoors! The city is also known for its incredible local cuisine and major support of farm-to-table initiatives. Local favorites every newbie should try at least once include the green chile, Denver omelets, and Palisade peaches.
For some of the best green chile and burritos in town, check out The Original Chubby’s, a family-run staple since 1967. Looking for a breakfast spot? You won’t want to miss the legendary Denver omelets at Sam’s No. 3 diner in the heart of downtown. And for some of the sweetest, fresh peaches in the country, head to the Metro Denver Farmer’s Market and pick up some Colorado-grown Palisade peaches.
