With Denver’s proximity to the Rocky Mountains and walkable neighborhoods, the Mile High City is an awesome destination for city lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike. With a passionate sports fan base, lively music scene, and beautiful views of the Rockies and its natural wonders, the opportunities for adventure are endless. With so much to do and see, StorQuest has put together a list of places you can’t miss while exploring Denver this summer.
Catch a Ball Game at Coors Field
Home to the Colorado Rockies, Coors Field is Major League Baseball’s highest-altitude ballpark and one of the best places to watch America’s pastime. Because it sits nearly a mile above sea level, you are almost guaranteed to witness a home run as hitters take advantage of the field’s thin mountain air. If you are looking for incredible summer sunsets, Rocky Mountain views, and a VIP terrace featuring 53 craft beers on tap, Coors Field is a must-see this summer.
Drive the Mount Evans Scenic Byway
Mount Evans Scenic Byway, just 60 miles west of Denver, is the highest paved road in North America. This epic adventure is different from others. The Mount Evans Scenic Byway isn’t about the destination – it's about the journey. Known as the “road to the sky,” it will take you an incredible 14,130 feet above sea level. As you make your way up Mount Evans, expect to witness breathtaking views, alpine lakes, enormous granite walls, and mountain goats and bighorn sheep. If you came to Denver to experience the Rockies, plan a day trip to Mount Evans and experience Colorado's natural beauty.
Attend a Concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre
Red Rocks Amphitheatre is considered one of the best concert venues in the world. Sit among towering sandstone rock faces that provide an epic acoustic experience for musicians and fans. Be prepared to hike up a few stairs, but when you get to your seat, you will realize that it was all worth it as you get to soak in gorgeous panoramic views of Denver. This summer, make Red Rocks Amphitheatre the centerpiece of your Denver vacation and enjoy the magical atmosphere that this venue delivers.
Soar Over Denver with Rocky Mountain Hot Air
What better way to cap off your Denver summer than with a birds-eye view of the Rocky Mountains via hot air balloon. Most rides launch in the morning when the winds are calmer, providing the perfect conditions to feel the cool breeze as you soar over beautiful Colorado landscapes. Many hot air balloon companies offer private rides, so you can create the ideal outdoor adventure for family and friends. When you land, most companies will treat your group to a champagne toast to celebrate a check off your bucket list. Experience the Rockies from a different perspective this summer in Denver, CO.
