Denver, the largest city of Colorado, is a colorful cultural melting pot. From a lush green parkway to a row of large, double-roofed houses perched high on their roofs, Denver boasts a unique culture. In addition to boasting some of the country's most prominent landmarks, Denver has been a venue for many popular works of architecture, from the architects who designed the Sears Tower to Jack Nicholson's ritzy Denver apartment. Every year, hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to the historic hub of the west to celebrate Denver's rich history and experience the thrill of the great outdoors.

 The following are a few must-see landmarks in Denver, from the past to the present. Denver's first African-American courthouse was built and sits proudly on Denver's southern Front Range. It overlooks the Platte River and was designed by noted architects. Next door is the Denver Museum of Fine Arts, which houses one of the world's largest collections of modern art, and several other cultural gems including the Denver Art Museum and the University of Denver's Edmond Museum. To the south lies the Continental Divide, with stunning scenery and deep gorges that are a natural escape for visitors looking for a change of pace.

In Denver, you have to walk to the end of a canyon to find a breathtaking view of the Rocky Mountains. Two miles north of Denver sits the historic Black Canyon of Gunnison National Park. Hike a portion of the South Platte River Trail to view the abundant wildlife on one of North Great Plains. After crossing the trail, be sure to stop at Fort Collins, a town with a rich history and a highly regarded arts community. The old growth forest and beautiful old buildings make this a town you don't want to miss. Another Colorado destination worth visiting is Fort Collins, located within the northernmost confines of the Grand Canyon. Located on the south side of the Colorado Continental Divide, Fort Collins has become a popular weekend getaway for vacationers to the west coast. The old growth forests and wide array of hiking trails make it perfect for nature lovers, while the beautiful town of nearly two thousand-year-old architecture and history keeps the place lively and interesting. 

Another hot spot is the town of Broomfield. Set against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, Broomfield is filled with small mountain towns nestled among the pine and birch forests. The beautiful, historic downtown area is dotted with coffee shops, art galleries, and wonderful restaurants. Lovers of outdoor adventures will be intrigued by the Broomfield Divide Trail, one of the most enjoyable hiking routes in the state. If you love the outdoors, you should make a beeline to Denver! The weather in Denver is always perfect; there is always something to do outdoors. And with all the Denver hotels, spas, and hot tubs available, there is never a lack of things to do! When you're done playing in the snow, pack up your gear and hit the slopes where the powder is...
