Mile-High City

Change things up with a short trip to River Rafting & Tubing in Idaho Springs (about 52 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, examine the collection at National Ballpark Museum, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, and get engrossed in the history at Golden History Museum & Park.
