Denver is known for parks, museums, and zoos & aquariums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, steep yourself in history at Denver Union Station, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Denver Zoo, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans.
