    We had an amazing day wandering around the gardens. One would never know you are in the heart of Denver as there is a peaceful solace felt. There are too many sections and unique areas to explain them all. Suffice to say there are representations of various plants/trees/climates from around the world. Flowers and trees bud/flower at various times so you are guaranteed for various colorful sights and smells. Well worth a visit!

    Beautiful views, unless the clouds descend to cover the mountain. Nice easy paved drive to the top. However, I ran it as part of the Mount Evans Ascent race. But that gives you even more time for better views on your way up. And if you're lucky, there will be a mountain goat waiting for you at the top!

    The shops close up pretty early, so don't go after 7p on a Sunday. It is a revamped train station. Very nice. The inside and chandeliers are so authentic. Beautiful interior. Make sure to stop in at the bar, brings back the old days. You really do take a step back in time.

    Great fun and entertaining evening of sports! Go Rockies. Easy and safe entrance, very well organized.
    Civil and orderly conduct and service. Good food and beverage.
    Good seats throughout.
    Food a bit expensive for the quality and amounts compared to the rest of the city but considering being at a ball game.
    Good experience.

    This isn’t for the faint at heart, but if you want a fantastic view of the area and the ability to say you have driven the highest road in North America, this is a great choice. The road is fairly narrow and has no guard rails, so make sure you can handle this. There are very few places you can turn around on your way up. We enjoyed seeing the tundra style plants and wildlife. We saw a lot of marmots, a herd of Bighorn does, and a mountain goat. Beware: the top is COLD and windy. Wear pants and a jacket.

    This museum was in my opinion, very similar to the Field Museum in Downtown Chicago, and even so, from the outside, The Museum looks crowded in the midst of a vibrant view of Denver's City Park that overlooks Downtown from a distance. While from the inside, it is very historic and wide, met with a large atrium expanding 3 floors of attractions. All of the attractions in particular are informative and very good to see, out of the 7 I saw, my favourite was the Colorado gemstone collection which not only showcased specific metals found in Colorado mines, but went far and above with informative descriptions and origins of metals.

    Overall, this museum is a very great way to spend time in Denver, especially when it comes to identifying more of the state's Natural History and World Science. I, for one will be trying to returning once per year.

    Love this museum. Incredible installations and truly crazy wonderful architecture. A funny thing to beware of: walking around inside the museum can make you a bit dizzy due to the trippy architecture.

    The tour guide (Jason) was very informative and made the tour very fun! He was very good about explaining the process and why they do it the way they do.

    You can’t beat the zoo for the price of admission! We spent 3+ hours touring the zoo and could easily have spent a couple more. Many of the birds were off exhibit due to the bird flu (as is the case in many other zoos) but there was still plenty to see. One feature that we haven’t seen at any other zoos was the Animal Hospital where you can view procedures happening live. We also liked how many of the animal exhibits were spread out to control crowding.

    Vivian provided a rich and in-depth picture of a courageous woman who never stopped being a supporter of the down-trodden, unrepresented, and under-privileged. Made me proud, and yet called me to continue to be strong and courageous in my own small corner.

    The museum has a fantastic selection of mechanical marvels to mystify one’s mind. The staff are very knowledgeable and so welcoming. You have to see the locomotive Big Boy’s humbling size up close. Hidden gem of Denver, definite must!

    Larimer Square in slightly bigger than a city block so we were disappointed in its size. It was under construction at one end also. It's worth the time if you have extra time to just mosey around!

    Had an awesome time taking the tour of Empower Field and the Mile High Stadium. Was able to visit the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame, the suites, the various lounges, broadcasting booth, press box, visiting team locker room,as well as go on the field. Our tour guide was wonderful and the group that I was on the tour with were very nice. I think it's awesome that the everyday person can get the experience to see the inner workings of an NFL stadium and see what the field looks like from the best views in the house. Definitely highly recommend for any NFL or American football fan.

    This is a great place to meet friends, walk your dog, skate, bike, etc. The outer loop is 2.7 miles, paved, and divided into walkers, skaters & bikers which allows each group to do their own thing without having to dodge each other. You have a lake to walk around, tennis courts, basketball court, etc.

    There are four floors of exhibits depicting the history of Colorado. We spent several hours looking at the exhibits and reading about Colorado. We parked in a pay parking lot about one and a half blocks away and there is an admission charge.
