What to See and Do in Denver
If you’re staying in the city, there’s plenty to eat, drink, and do during your stay. We recommend checking out the following places:
- Larimer Square: Located blocks away from the Convention Center, this block offers a ton of dining and libation options. From fresh seafood and delicious brews, to a restaurant run by former Master Chef contestant and James Beard winner, this is a must-visit destination during your trip. Be sure to check out one of the nation’s best comedy clubs, Comedy Works, if you’re looking to unwind and laugh after a long day of networking.
- LoDo: Lower downtown, aka LoDo, is an awesome destination to visit after the conference. This district is home to Coors Field where the Colorado Rockies play. Fortunately for you, the Rockies are home from 6/27 through 6/30. Be sure to check out an evening game so you can enjoy a Colorado sunset while watching the game. Don’t forget to check out the rooftop bar inside the stadium.
- RiNo: The River North district is a new up and coming neighborhood just north of LoDo. If you’re looking to try some Colorado craft beer, or even some of our local cideries and distilleries, this is the neighborhood to visit. Be sure to walk through the alleys to check out some of the city’s best street art.
Venture Outside of the City
If you’re renting a car or planning to extend your trip, here are some must-see destinations close to the city.
- Red Rocks Amphitheater: Notably one of the greatest outdoor music venues in the world, Red Rocks is worth checking out even if you can’t attend a concert. Be sure to visit the nearby city of Morrison for lunch.
- Boulder: Home to the University of Colorado, Boulder is the ideal destination for outdoor enthusiasts. Stroll down Pearl Street for lunch and shopping, and for picturesque views, take a short hike up the Chautauqua Trail.
- Golden: A short drive from downtown, Golden is home to the Coors Brewery. Take a free brewery tour and sample favorites from the Coors family of beverages. This is another great destination for outdoors enthusiasts as it offers awesome hiking trails and the opportunity for river tubing!
Hope to see you at NAA!
