Denver, Colorado, the host city for this year’s AMTA National Convention, offers exciting activities to entertain you during your free time! Whatever experience you seek, from culture to adventure, Denver has something for you.
For some adventure, take a day trip to Rocky Mountain National Park, the most popular attraction in Colorado! Just an hour and a half drive from Denver, this scenic park has hundreds of miles of hiking trails, waterfalls, lakes and even horseback riding.
Discover Nature and Science
Explore the cosmos, marvel at ancient Egyptian Mummies, and watch an IMAX movie at Denver’s Museum of Nature & Science. This highly rated museum is situated in City Park which also boasts the Denver Zoo, golfing, biking and walking paths.
Enjoy the Greenery
Visit the Denver Botanic Gardens! Located just a short bus ride or drive from the Colorado Convention Center, this urban oasis will transport you out of a bustling city and into greenhouses and gardens filled with gorgeous plant life. You won’t want to miss the blown glass exhibit by the artist Chihuly that will be displayed during our time in Denver.
Bike Around Denver
Easily explore Downtown Denver while enjoying the sunshine by renting a B-cycle! VisitDenver.org has great tips on the ins and outs of renting a B-cycle, and some suggested routes around Downtown.
If a guided bike tour is more your speed, Bikealope offers a variety of tours around Denver to learn more about the city while you get some exercise.
Experience it All
If you’re planning a full vacation in Denver, one great way to see multiple attractions on a budget is through Denver’s Mile High Culture Pass. You can save up to $25 when you bundle three to five popular attractions including some above, plus you get additional discounts on many activities. Learn more about the culture pass.
