Plan Your Day in Denver

Plan Your Day in Denver

Whether you’re a lifelong resident of the Mile High City or are just visiting Denver for a few days, you may be looking for some unique and memorable activities with which to fill your days. While Denver (like most other cities of its size) boasts an aquarium, art museums, botanical gardens, and a robust and charming downtown shopping district, you may be interested in pursuing some activities that are a bit off the beaten path.

Read on for some ideas on how to entertain and amuse yourself while spending a day in the city of Denver.

Become An Escape Artist

If you enjoy puzzles and tend to work well under pressure, you may be able to become a full-fledged escape artist during your time in Denver. At EscapeWorks, you’ll have the opportunity (along with 1 to 11 of your closest friends) to solve a series of mysteries allowing you to secure your escape from a locked room.

If you’re able to solve each puzzle and unlock the door within 60 minutes, you’ll gain bragging rights about your problem-solving skills for weeks to come. Those who aren’t able to make it out within the hour may want to try their hand at another room instead!

EscapeWorks lets you choose from one of several plot themes, from finding treasure in an ancient Egyptian tomb to attempting to pull off a large-scale casino heist. Each escape room is decked out to transport you back in time (or across the globe), with clues hidden inside secret panels or hiding in plain sight through coded writings or even hieroglyphics. Visit EscapeWorks to plan your visit and pick out your favorite scenario.

Check Out A Skate Park

Whether you’re a skater yourself or just an interested observer, you’ll be thoroughly entertained (for free) by visiting one of the city’s famous skate parks. Denver’s high altitude and laid-back atmosphere is the perfect place for budding skaters to thrive, and its parks have produced the likes of Kyle Clark (who recently broke the world speed record), as well as other talented skateboarders, roller bladers, and roller skaters.

Those who are interested in being part of the action will want to suit up in protective gear (including knee pads and a helmet) before hitting the pavement, since nothing can put a crimp in your Denver entertainment plans like an unexpected trip to the hospital.

See How Your Money Is Made

The tiny “D” that appears on the face of many coins indicates they were minted at the Denver Mint, a branch of the United States Mint. Free guided tours of the facility are available year-round, with experienced tour guides available to answer your questions and give you a unique insight into how coins are made and put into circulation.

Although this tour unfortunately doesn’t offer any free product samples like some other factories, the Mint does have a one-of-a-kind gift shop where you can buy collector coins, postcards, and other memorabilia to commemorate your visit.
