Introduction to Denver

Discover the city's unique natural allure with American Airlines flights to Denver. The Mile High City is known for its love of the great outdoors and beautiful setting, and with good reason. It's a city that's equally great for families and couples, thanks to the wide range of things to do in Denver.

Things To Do In Denver

One of the can't-miss activities in Denver is a visit to the 330-acre City Park. You'll find a water feature for children, a golf course, tennis courts, two lakes with boat rentals, jogging paths and more. And if that's not enough to keep you busy, City Park is also home to the Denver Zoo, The Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and an IMAX theater.

A stop at the Denver Art Museum is, of course, de rigueur. But we also think that when it comes to things to do in Denver, a visit to the Colorado History Museum is in order. This museum, though lesser known, is just as impactful. You'll be fascinated by the large collection of archived newspapers, photographs and multimedia exhibits that clearly illustrate Colorado's history. You'll see the role that native tribes and pioneers played in the development of the entire state. Of special interest is the detailed re-creation of Denver in the 19th century.

Many of the activities in Denver that feature headline acts take place at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater. The park itself is a result of natural formations created over 250 million years ago, so it deserves as much applause as the acts themselves. These natural formations have resulted in incredible acoustics, so if there's an outdoor concert happening here when you're in town, you owe it to yourself to go. No concert? Take time to explore the park's hiking trails. This park is open daily.
