So, if you find yourself in Colorado on business or vacation, our local Vaconians have the top five places to Free Yourself in Denver.
Looking for a concert, hiking or even yoga? Red Rocks is what most Denver natives believe to be the greatest, not only outdoor amphitheater, but amphitheater of all time. Anyone who is anyone has performed at Red Rocks, including John Mayer, Journey, Heart, Florence and The Machine, and many more. During the day, the amphitheater is open to the public. Hike one of the many trails, run the stairs, or view the website’s calendar to see when the next exercise class is being held.
Batter up! Head to Coors Field to watch a Colorado Rockies’ game. Even if you’re not much into baseball, The Rooftop has a fun bar atmosphere and tickets for the Rock Pile are dirt cheap. Indulge in beers, hot dogs and Dip n’ Dots galore. Most recently, Coors hosted The Eagles and Jimmy Buffet concert.
River North Art District or “RiNo” is known to be, “where art is made.” RiNo was nicknamed by the neighborhood which inspired the rhino to be its official logo, so keep an eye out for artsy rhinos hidden within the galleries, pubs, restaurants, jazz bars, and more as your grace the streets. You won’t want to miss this scene, as it has been ranked as a Top 10 Neighborhoods to Visit in the U.S by Lonely Planet.
Larimer Square is one of the most historic streets in Colorado. The street is decorated with streaming lights and interchanges between the Colorado flag and holiday décor. Munch on baked goods and coffee from The Market, shop at one of the many boutiques, or buy tickets for Comedy Works which has headlined acts like Nikki Glaser, Dave Coulier, Chris D’Elia, and more!
Denver’s recently renovated Union Station has become a hub for transportation, award-winning cuisine, local retail shops, and the swanky Crawford Hotel. As soon as you touch-down at the Denver International Airport (DIA), hop on the RTD line, Denver’s public train system, and arrive directly to Union Station. It’s a classic sight with entertainment for both locals and visitors.
