You aren’t alone if the only time you have ever booked a tour or excursion is while on vacation. However, the fastest growing demographic for tours around the world are locals. Even if you have lived in Denver or your city your entire life there is sure to be at least a few fun activities worth exploring.
Something Unique To Do With A Group
Wondering what to do for your next office outing or the next time you have family in town? Tours can easily be found in options that are perfect for all ages and interests. One of the most popular local tour options are culinary food tours—because who doesn’t like to eat? While you may have lived in Denver your entire life there are so many delicious restaurants to choose from that you can’t get to them all. Along the way you will learn a bit of history you might not have known about our beloved city.
Experiential Travel Is On The Rise
Every city has at least a few popular tourist attractions but tenured travelers are looking for experiences that are a bit more immersive. Travelers don’t just want to see a city’s top sights, but to engage with locals and experience what makes each spot they visit unique. This is why cultural tours increased globally by almost 60% in 2017. While originally designed to attract international and out-of-state travelers once the buzz beings to build locals sign up too. But don’t pass up local favorites like watching the Colorado Rockies, Denver Broncos, or any local sports team live.
To Break The Monotony
Even in a city the size of Denver, your days can begin to feel like Groundhog’s Day. Break the monotony by scheduling a local tour or excursion. This can be a great way to make new friends, learn some fun facts about our city, and is a fun and creative date idea. If you want a personalized experience most tour companies offer private tours.
Niche Tours And Activities Are On The Rise
You may have no desire to tour some of your hometown’s top tourist attractions, but that’s far from your only option. Head online to see if there is a tour for any hobby or interest you enjoy. At the very least look to see what your local tour options are, as there may be something fun and new you want to try like riding a Segway or a no-experience-needed painting class with Painting With a Twist. Or maybe you want to do something seasonal like taking the Night Spirits ghost tour around Halloween? That being said, don’t count out tours to popular tourist destinations as having a tour guide can allow you to see a location in a whole new light.
Globally one of the fastest growing types of tours are cooking and culinary food tours. Every major city in the world has at least a few food tasting tours to choose from highlighting the best regional cuisine and local chefs and artisans. That’s exactly what we do at Taste of Denver Food Tours!
