Denver CityPASS

Top Things To Do In Denver

Ah, Denver: the Mile-High City. (It really is one mile high - the thirteenth step of the State Capital Building puts you squarely at 5,280 feet above sea level.) It’s surrounded by mountains and boasts over 300 sunny days per year. Tourists and residents alike revere it for its snowy peaks in winter and unfathomably beautiful trails in summer. What’s even better? Along with its enviable weather and mountainous landscape, it also happens to be a cultural and activity mecca. Turns out there are plenty of things to do in Denver besides ski and hike.

Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus

Don’t be fooled by the word "children" - the Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus is an intriguing adventure for all ages. Its mission is for everyone to relish the joy and wonder of childhood.
