Denver is an Active City – A List of Things to do in Denver

Denver, CO

Denver is an active city. There are hundreds of activities to do in the Mile High City. No matter what activity you prefer, you know Denver will have it.

Here are the 5 best things to do in Denver:


Recently, micro breweries have flocked to the West. Rocky Mountain water gives every beer brewed in Denver a crisp, clean taste straight from the tap. The Coors Brewery tour in nearby Golden is free to the public and provides free samples for anyone over 21 to enjoy. If you are looking for smaller breweries, check out the tour at New Belgium Brewery in Ft. Collins. In the middle of Denver, there is an official Denver Microbrew Tour, with stops near the Ballpark and in the LoDo neighborhood — perfect for the beer connoisseur.

Book Readings

Denver is also home to many authors and poets who like to present their works in local bookstores and coffee shops. On Sunday nights, there is a poetry slam at Mercury Cafe, where anyone can sign up to present their poem or just come by and listen to the poems. There are also book signings at the Tattered Cover, a local book store specializing in local, independent authors.

Trivia Nights

Are you looking for something to do in Denver where you can showcase your knowledge of random information? Check out the trivia nights hosted by many bars in the Denver area. Geeks Who Drink is popular in Denver, hosting a pub quiz night most nights of the week. On Wednesdays, the Irish Rover hosts a quiz and Stoney’s Bar and Grill has a trivia night on Thursdays.

Opera House / Plays / Ballet

Denver is home to the world-renowned Colorado Ballet, featuring world-class ballet dancers at various theatres throughout Denver. Some of Broadway’s most famous plays, like The Lion King and The Book of Mormon, have performed shows at the Bellco Theater. Next door to the Bellco Theater is the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, where opera enthusiasts will be delighted that every seat tilts backward in the theater.


The new trend for entertainment venues are puzzle rooms. Teams from 2 to 8 players congregate in individual rooms where the team has one hour to unlock the door. Each room has a theme, and there are puzzles, clues and codes spread out in the room, ready to be solved by each team. Because the clues are unique to each room, some clues might lead to another clue, a way out of the room, or even a hidden room! The fun keeps going until the timer runs out, creating a sense of urgency and entertainment as the night wears on.
