Denver is situated in a picturesque valley on the High Plains of Colorado. It’s one of the United States’ healthier and active cities. It is located on the eastern side, at Rocky Mountain’s foothills. I wanted to visit this place because I was excited to know why it attracts all the big financial companies, key energy producers, and most importantly the innovative technology firms here. Some of the must-visit places in Denver are as follows:
The Washington Park
The Washington Park lies on the southern part of central Denver. It occupies a total area of 165 acres with ample facilities for the visitors and an atmosphere that can be thoroughly enjoyed by them. It boasts gardens, jogging paths, and two huge lakes, the main attraction of the park. You can have a brisk walk through the pathway. I simply sat and relaxed on the grass and enjoyed every bit of the park.
The Denver Zoo
When you are in Denver, you have to allow one day for visiting the zoo. Modeled after a nature preserve in Kenya, the Denver Zoo is home to approximately 4000 animals which includes black rhinos, orang-utans, kangaroos, and tigers. The zoo is spread across 80 acres of City Park. I recommend you to visit the zoo during their feeding time. You will surely have a lifetime experience there.
Botanic Garden Denver
The Botanic Garden at Denver features 50 massive gardens that visitors can explore. The Garden, spread across 24 acres, has different areas that are dedicated to specific environments boasting a wide variety of flora and fauna. On one hand you will see a traditional Japanese bonsai garden, and on the other hand, an area dedicated to exotic plants of the world. I preferred the guided tour because I wanted to know more about the gardens.
