Some of the best national parks in the country are located within minutes of the city center including Rocky Mountain National Park and Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater.

Take a hike in the mountains, kayak on the river or the lakes, or have a picnic in a grassy meadow with only the wildlife for company.
Denver is also a historic city with ties going back to the Wild West.
