No matter where you find yourself in The Mile High City, you’re likely only a few steps away from a lush and relaxing green space.

Denver street artists have been busy brightening (and enlightening) the urban landscape for decades by making canvases of the city’s alleyways, building exteriors, warehouses, garage doors and storefronts. Grab your camera and take a stroll past some of the city’s favorite murals.
This is an all-virtual music festival designed to support Colorado musicians and music lovers during this difficult time. The Rocky Mountain Virtual Music Festival features artists playing live shows from rooms of 10 people or fewer every Friday!
Denver Zoo may be closed, but the dedicated animal care staff is still providing vital care for the nearly 3,000 animal residents. Stay informed, entertained and engaged with daily videos, wildlife-themed activity ideas and much more!
Avoid boredom at home with the team from Denver Museum of Nature & Science! Raid your pantry and closets for everyday items you can use to explore science, math and engineering and create fun art projects.
Go “behind the wings” of some of history’s most iconic aerospace treasures, housed at Denver’s Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. Peek into the cockpits of rare warbirds, fly over the Centennial State in a state-of-the-art Skyhawk and climb into the cockpit of the legendary B-52 Bomber.
Get ready for some serious laughs when comedians from The Mile High City get paired with other things Denverites love: beer, street art, world-class cuisine, music and adventure!
There may not be a Red Rocks show this weekend, but you can relive concerts from years past online, including John Mayer, String Cheese Incident, The Avett Brothers and many more.
Enjoy live music from Levitt Pavilion every weekday evening.
The way Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorate Art displays its three collections “salon style” gives it a noticeably different atmosphere than most other museums. Take a virtual tour of the layout and get a peek at favorite pieces and exhibits.
