This one is not like the other city parks. It's actually a historic attraction-a house and ground combo. Built in 1859, it is 'oldest standing residential structure in the metropolitan area'. It used to be a 600 acre farm, now only 12 of those acres remain. The best way to view the park and house is by the docent led guided tour, which are extremel...

This is not a soft drink factory tour. The Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, and Colorado Mammoths (basketball, hockey and lacrosse respectively) call this multi-purpose arena their home. As such, there is a lot of fervent fan energy during home matches. The atmosphere is uproarious and infectious. But with over 200 events a year, the arena deliv...

Inside, at the front of the service, is a very impressive looking organ of many pipes. The stained glass is nice. Architecturally, the building symbolises the holy trinity in various elements, such as three arches on the entrance
