Denver Series: Favorite Things To Do



I’m keeping my Denver Series going strong! I started the series off by sharing my favorite places to eat, then not long after that, I shared the best places to stay whenever you’re visiting! And now it’s time to chat all about the best things to do when you’re visiting Denver. This should actually say Colorado series because there is obviously A LOT to do outside of just Denver itself since we have the Rocky Mountains nearby, but I made sure to give you a little bit of both. And I also tried to give you an estimate of how far some of the places are from Denver! In this post, I tried to figure out all the things I like to do the most here in Denver, while thinking of what I like to do when I travel! I’m not huge into hiking or museums, but I still tried to add in a couple of those for people who are! Hope this helps you plan your own trip when you’re traveling to this wonderful state!
