Denver, the capital of Colorado, is an American metropolis dating to the Old West era. Larimer Square, the city’s oldest block, features landmark 19th-century buildings. Museums include the Denver Art Museum, an ultramodern complex known for its collection of indigenous works, and the mansion of famed Titanic survivor Molly Brown. Denver is also a jumping-off point for ski resorts in the nearby Rocky Mountains.
The coin-producing Denver Mint is open to the public, and the 1894 State Capitol Building also offers tours. The Botanic Gardens hosts summer concerts, and the Museum of Nature and Science has exhibits on anthropology, geology, space and zoology. The Clyfford Still Museum showcases works by the namesake Abstract Expressionist. Many saloons once thrived in the “Mile High City,” and their influence is evident in the microbreweries, sports bars and live-music venues that make up Denver’s nightlife scene. Coors Field hosts Colorado Rockies baseball games, and pro football’s Broncos play at Sports Authority Field.
