Watch A Live Denver Broncos Game

Head To A Summer Festival
There are summer festivals for every age and interest. From music and art to food and drinks, cultural festivals, hot air balloons, sandcastles, Renaissance fairs, and more. Many are hosted right here in town and some are just a short drive away.
Take A Denver Day Trip
Summer is the perfect time to explore our many nearby cities, tourist attractions, historic landmarks, and parks. You can hop in the car and wing it, or you can plan your trip in advance. Feel free to make a weekend of it or at least spend the night camping or in a hotel.
Watch A Movie In The Park
Pack a picnic and watch a movie in the park. There are several nearby parks and movies to choose from. This is a fun date idea or a perfect way to encourage the kids to unplug and get a few hours of fresh air.
Be A Tourist For A Day
Whether you have lived in Denver for a few years or are a lifelong local, you may not have yet hit up some of LoDos best tourist attractions. Or maybe it’s been years since you’ve been. Consider the local museums and top hot spots, but also consider the many city tours that offer a unique way to enjoy the city you love.
Head To A Free Spot
There are tons of fun, free, and budget-friendly things you can do in Denver—perfect for families with kids and teenagers. However, there is plenty for the adults, couples, and singles to do too.
