Diverse Denver

Since its Wild West beginnings, Denver has attracted all kinds of people.

The rich ethnic history and diverse cultural heritage of the city are celebrated with a number of events throughout the year, from the nation's largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in the spring to the Longs Peak Scottish Irish Festival in the fall. Summer brings the Colorado Gay Rodeo and Denver PrideFest, a celebration of community and culture. The historically rich African-American Five Points neighborhood is home to the Black American West Museum (3091 California St.), while the Museo de las Americas (861 Santa Fe Dr.) hosts some of the world's top contemporary artists from Latin America. A trip to The Mile High City will find no shortage of year-round cultural activity.

LGBT

Sure, "Brokeback Mountain" made a neighboring state famous, but the laid-back, welcoming nature of the locals and a vibrant nightlife makes Denver the true gay and lesbian center of the West, with many hotels and restaurants catering to LGBT visitors. For shopping and nightlife, check out the Capitol Hill neighborhood. You may also want to plan your trip during one of the nation's largest PrideFests or the Colorado Gay Rodeo. For more resources, go to the websites of Denver Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Colorado.
