Expats living in Denver will find that it offers plenty of activities to keep them occupied in their spare time. Whether one prefers interacting with the animal world at the city's zoo or aquarium, or just spending the day lazing in the sunshine at one of the city's parks, the Mile High City has something to suit everyone.

Attractions in Denver 

Denver Zoo

The city’s zoo covers an area of about 80 acres and is located in City Park. It is a popular attraction in Denver with over 1.6 million visitors each year. The Denver Zoo houses more than 4,000 animals from across the globe and is a fun-filled outing for the whole family.

Denver Botanic Gardens

Expats with green fingers will find lots of gardening inspiration at the Botanic Gardens. Despite the dry climate found in Colorado, visitors will find over 32,000 types of plant species. The gardens also provide a fabulous setting for a picnic or family day out, particularly in the summer when outdoor concerts are held in the amphitheatre.

Colorado State Capitol Building

A spectacular example of 19th-century classical architecture, complete with its distinctive gold-leaf-covered dome, Colorado's state capitol is a must-see. The building is situated a full mile above sea level, lending Denver its nickname of the ‘Mile High City’.

Denver Art Museum

Expats who appreciate art will get the chance to admire collections from throughout history, though the museum is especially well-known for its excellent collection of Native American art. There are also imaginative hands-on exhibits and games to keep the little ones entertained as well.

Downtown Aquarium

A trip to the aquarium is a delight for the whole family. Young visitors enjoy interactive experiences such as the touch pool and the old shipwreck. Afterwards, families can enjoy a meal at the aquarium restaurant seated beside a 150,000-gallon tank filled with all sorts of sea creatures.
