On the 3rd (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take an in-depth tour of History Colorado Center, steep yourself in history at Center for Colorado Women's History at the Byers-Evans House, then examine the collection at National Ballpark Museum, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.
