Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs) and Boulder (Pearl Street Mall, Flagstaff Mountain, & more). There's still lots to do: admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, meet the residents at Denver Zoo, and examine the collection at Molly Brown House Museum.
