The amount of great things to do outside in Denver is virtually never ending! When you're here, you've just got to get outside and soak up that mountain air. We here at the Cherry Creek Holiday Inn have compiled a few of our favorite ways to have fun outdoors in the mile high city. Take a look - in Denver, there's something for everyone!
Rent A Bike For The Day
Denver is one of the most bike-friendly cities in the country! It's very easy to get around town and see everything there is to see. Plus it's fun and great exercise! Denver's B-Cycle bike rental is a great choice, as they've got stations all throughout the city. You can start right here in Cherry Creek, because there are a couple stations right around the corner. You can find one at the Cherry Creek Mall at 2900 Cherry Creek N Drive, and another at 30 S. Madison Street.
Take A Boat Ride
Washington Park's Smith Lake is a great place for some leisurely time out on the water! Rent a paddleboat and take the whole family out on the lake. Or, if you're a bit more of a thrill seeker, you can rent a kayak and ride chutes through Confluence Park. Confluence Kayaks has everything you'll need for an urban kayaking adventure!
Take A Hike...At Red Rocks!
Denver's Red Rocks may be best known for their great summer concert series, but you can also take a scenic hike or bike ride there during the day. It's just a half hour from the Holiday Inn, so you can take a spirited day hike and be back in time for dinner, or stick around for a show!
Be sure to ask our friendly staff at the Holiday Inn for other great outdoor recommendations!
