Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Estes Park (Photography Tours, Aspen and Evergreen Gallery, &more), Carousel of Happiness (in Nederland) and Colorado Springs (Helen Hunt Falls, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, &more). There's lots more to do: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, cruise along Trail Ridge Road, and get a sense of history and politics at Colorado State Capitol.
