We'll pass by world-class museums like the Denver Art Museum, an ultramodern complex known for its indigenous works collection. Hear about well-known Denver residents from centuries past, including founding father General William H. Larimer. Denver is known as a jumping-off point for skiing in the nearby Rocky Mountains, so take in the city’s beautiful natural setting as you gaze out at the snow-capped peaks.
Continuing on through Denver’s definitively walkable downtown, check out the window displays of locally owned shops along the pedestrian-friendly 16th Street Mall. Stand outside the Denver Mint, which produces 10 billion coins annually, and hear about the plethora of entertainment options in town, from a river offering whitewater rafting to the country’s only downtown amusement park. Your tour wraps up at one of Denver's most famous spots: Union Station.
