One of ScooTours Denver's favorite rides. Red Rocks Amphitheater is a jewel in the Denver parks system. Purchased by George Cranmer and built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, its sandstone is recognizable to concert fans everywhere. When you ride here, you'll usually come VERY close to deer. Please don't bother them. To get here, head east on Alameda until just before C-470. Left on Rooney Ranch Road and you'll glide under C-470 and into the town of Morrison. Have some Mexican food at the Morrison Inn and then cruise around Red Rocks. Free admission. Free public guided tours provided at 10am every day, unless concert setup prevents it.
Daniels and Fisher Tower
Downtown Denver's 16th Street Mall has long been our main street. Long ago, this tower was at the corner of a large department store. When the building was torn down, the tower remained. The top floors provide a great space to host a party. The tower itself is at 16th and Arapahoe St. downtown, but seldom is it open for visitors to visit its clock tower at the top.
Glide southeast down Speer Blvd, following Cherry Creek upstream. Turn right at Downing St. and enter the park just south of Virginia St. This is one of Denver's most popular parks for biking, jogging, volleyball, frisbee, people watching, and dog/baby walking.
Colorado State Capitol
Colorado State Capitol in Denver. Visitors to town should make sure to
get a photo standing on these steps where the engraving states "ONE MILE
ABOVE SEA LEVEL."
I See What You Mean - Convention Center
Though the title of this artwork is I See What You Mean, most of us know it as the Big Blue Bear at the convention center. Much more universally loved than Blucifer, the demon-eyed blue bronco at Denver International Airport, this statue is a perfect photo spot. A dermatologist recently noticed a strange looking spot on its back and the surgery is being performed here in this photo. April Fools! Vandals on April 1, 2013 poured green paint from the roof of the Colorado Convention Center onto the shoulder of our beloved bear. The cleanup, shown in progress, was completely successful.
Coors Field - Home of the Colorado Rockies baseball team
Come get a photo by this holy site at 20th and Blake St. Pretty outside. Very well designed inside. Grab yourself a burrito on the street before you head into the game.
Sixteenth Street Mall
The 16th Street Mall is Denver's main street.
Cranmer Park, often called Sundial Park, in Denver, Colorado. To the east (not pictured) is George Cranmer's former house. Cranmer championed the purchase of much of Denver's abundant park land, including some mountain jewels, Red Rocks Amphitheater and Winter Park Resort.
City Park and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science
from the balcony at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and toward
downtown Denver in front of the majestic Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. This location,
on the east edge of Denver's City Park, is easily accessible by scooter
by zipping down 17th from downtown. At Colorado Blvd, turn left and
enter the museum area at Montview (20th). The Denver Zoo shares parking
lots with the DMNS.
