  4. Pepsi Center

    Tags: Arena

    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 delivers a lot more than mere sports, such as concer...Read more

    Designed in French Gothic style, it is the cathedral of the Archdiocese of Denver of the Roman Catholic Church and is one of the few cathedrals to be honoured as “Minor Basilica”.

  7. Four Mile Historic Park

    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 extremely informative. Outside of the house you'll see ...Read more
