A nice place to stroll and see the diverse collection of flora. Wear sunscreen as some of the exhibit is outside.
Mount Evans & Scenic Byway
Mount Evans & Summit Lake
Contrasted to the easier trails around Chicago Lake, Mount Evans has a rugged beauty which is part of being in the Rocky Mountains. Drive all the way to the top for a great look out and possibly some snow!

Denver City Park includes the Denver Zoo and Denver Museum of Nature and Science within its borders as well as ponds, walkways and a boathouse.

The fascinating thing about Denver is how short its history is; legend says there was not a soul living in the Denver metro area before 1958, the year it was founded as a Gold Mining town. This industry provided Denver with the people and resources to grow drastically over the next 2 years, reaching a population of 100,000. Nowadays Denver is the place to be for US skiing in the Rockies, river rafting, hiking, and other fun outdoor activities. The downtown core is one of the friendliest to pedestrians and its skyline is dappled with sky scrapers against scenic mountains.
