Take a break from Denver with a short trip to Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge in Commerce City, about 30 minutes away. There's much more to do: sample the fine beverages at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour, ski along the peaceful trails at Cherry Creek State Park, steep yourself in history at Denver Union Station, and look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.
