On the 21st (Wed), explore the galleries of Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center. On the 22nd (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: admire the striking features of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, do a tasting at Balistreri Vineyards, then brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour, and finally explore the landscape on two wheels at Cherry Creek Trail.
