Denver is known for parks, zoos & aquariums, museums, childrens museums, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, explore and take pictures at Coors Field, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, and get a sense of history and politics at Colorado State Capitol.

Plan a trip to Denver easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

There's much more to do: soar above the sights with a balloon tour, do a tasting at Domaine Carneros, indulge your taste buds at Mumm Napa, and stop by Oxbow Public Market.
