Which cities come to mind when you think about the US? They would probably be The New York city, Los-Angeles, Vegas and maybe some other overcrowded places with hectic lifestyle, which we usually see on the screens.
But what if you think about real America, about lands that were undisturbed by mankind for centuries. Where nature attracts people more than infrastructure, fashionable restaurants and old museums. Where you can’t decide whether to stay downtown or to get into the countryside. Maybe you’ve never thought about that, but America is so rich on such places and one of them is the heart and the center of this country – it is Denver, Colorado.
Even though there was no intention to make Denver a point of interest for tourists, there is still a lot to see within the city limits. For example, it’s Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, where a lot of engineering projects, such as aircrafts, are presented. Heard about Colorado Whiskey?
Then it will be interesting for you to go down to the cellars of Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey factory, where this drink is made. In the city center you can find Colorado state Capitol, a pretty common American architectural complex, but still attractive in every US city. All these destinations are included in small daily tours, that you can book at the airport, railway station or online.
But as was mentioned earlier, the beauty of the state is located not in the cities, but around them. That’s why when you goggle “Denver tours” you’ll probably see a list of out of town attractions, such as Colorado air balloon rides with a spectacular view of the mountains; wild water adventures, where you’ll ride the wildest rivers and a range of hiking tours to the green forests and rocky mountains, that surround Denver.
So maybe it’s time to think, what side of America you really want to see: a “big city life” part or the wild and authentic one.
