Denver Botanic Gardens. The Denver Botanic Gardens is one of the must see locations for anyone who’s looking for a peaceful, relaxing walk.This gorgeous oasis spans 24 acres and is covered in stunning sights, including numerous sculptures, pools, and different garden types.
For the coolest sculptures, check out the huge, spiky red-and-yellow piece entitled “Colorado” made by glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, or the Deborah Butterfield piece depicting a horse stripped bare.
Clyfford Still Museum. The Clyfford Still Museum is situated right next to the arguably much more popular Denver Art Museum, but it is just as worthy of stopping by while you’re in this Colorado city.It houses a whopping 3,200 pieces created by Clyfford Still, who is world-renowned as an abstract expressionist artist. Originally opened in 2011, the Clyfford Still Museum celebrates some of Still’s most loved works, beginning from his early sketches from the 1920s to his more well-known canvas masterpieces made back in the 1950s.
Witness the bright bursts of colors, supplemented with a variety of informational placards that keep things concise yet interesting.
Mount Evans Scenic Byway. The Mount Evans Scenic Byway is a stunning spot for sightseeing that is located on Colorado Highway 5. It’s a great way to take in some stunning views without exerting yourself in a hike if that’s not something you feel like doing. The concept is simple: pay a simple car entrance fee and drive up from Echo Lake’s Highway 103 to the top of the Summit Lake road. The road is only open at certain times of the year, but it’s one of the best places to visit in the area.
