I loved my trip to Denver! What a magical city! The snow! The people! The activities! The people here have a lot to do and although my visit wasn’t as long as I wished it to be, I still had the chance to enjoy the Mile High City for the winter wonderland it is. Here are my favorite 6 things to do in Denver in the winter.gs to Do in Denver in the Winter

1. Downtown Denver Rink at Skyline Park

During winter, the park at the corner of Arapahoe and 16th features ice skating, something I love! So, of course, I had to head there. It’s free and anyone can skate here. Bring your own skates or there’s a small fee for renting a pair. It’s such an experience! This year, the ice skating is on until February 16, 2018, so get here fast! Thin

3. Molly Brown House

This was tops on my list to see because Reese and I have read so much about her and we love anything related to the Titanic. Within 15 minutes of starting the tour, I discovered there was so much I didn’t really know about Molly…errr Margret (Yeah, spoiler alert, her name was never Molly!). Reese wants to head to Denver for skiing so when I come back, I’ll have to bring her. It’s a fun and education tour and they make it kid-friendly by giving little ones things to touch along the way.

4. Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre

I’m told this is THE place for concerts. But there was no concert when I was here. So instead, I took a look around the museum for the Performers’ Hall of Fame and got a chance to explore the bright red rocks for a truly unforgettable adventure. Things to Do in Denver in the Winter

5. Black American West Museum

The West was settled by cowboys and cowgirls but did you know there were African American cowboys and cowgirls too? This museum was an interesting trip back in time. It’s located in what was once the home of Dr. Justina Ford who was the first black woman to be a doctor in Denver. The museum is only open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm so don’t miss your chance to see it! Things to Do in Denver in the Winter

6. Rocky Mountain National Park

Just a little bit outside of Denver, I had the incredible chance to see the Rocky Mountain, National Park. It seriously took my breath away. The snow-speckled landscape was one of the most heavenly sights I’ve ever seen. Chatting with some locals, I found out that the park is a favorite of the people here year-round because it’s always changing with the seasons. I’d love to come back and see it again at another time of year!

7. Denver Central Market

And finally, if you know me at all, you know that no trip of mine would ever be complete without exploring the food where I’m at. Denver is an absolute must-visit for the foodie scene. At the Denver Central Market, you get all these foodie places all in one location from rich and divine chocolates to freshly shucked oysters. It was the perfect place to come in from the cold and warm up!

Denver was amazing! I can’t wait to go back and see it again. Have you ever been to Denver?
