Top 10 Things to do in Denver, United States

December 9, 2017 Mollie Coke

Denver (/ˈdɛnvər/), officially the City and County of Denver, is the capital and most populous municipality of the U.S. state of Colorado. Denver is in the South Platte River Valley on the western edge of the High Plains just east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The Denver downtown district is immediately east of the confluence of Cherry Creek with the South Platte River, approximately 12 mi (19 km) east of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Denver is nicknamed the Mile High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile (5280 feet or 1609.3 meters) above sea level, making it the highest major city in the United States. The 105th meridian west of Greenwich, the longitudinal reference for the Mountain Time Zone, passes directly through Denver Union Station.

Ephrata Cloister

One of America's earliest religious communities, the Historic Ephrata Cloister was founded in 1732 by German settlers seeking spiritual goals rather than earthly rewards. Gathered in unique European style buildings, the community consisted of celibate Brothers and Sisters, and a married congregation of families.At the zenith of the community in the 1740s and 1750s, about 300 members worked and worshiped at the Cloister. Today, the National Historic Landmark is open for tours, special programs, and on-going research opportunities.

My experience there took me back to a time of religious persecution where one person began a following of faithful believers that began a century old religion. The tour guide was knowledgeable and gave us insight into daily life, the beginnings of their religion, and other tidbits about the buildings. The grounds were beautiful and there were many places to explore. Truly a wonderful experience learning about a bygone religion and their life.

Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area

Many species of waterfowl call this lake / reserve home.

Reviewed By muffinwag - Wind Gap, Pennsylvania

A self-guided driving tour of the Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area provides time for viewing fauna and flora. Birdwatching was the primary purpose of the visit, but the area provided so much more to enjoy. The Visitors" Center provides displays, a bird feeding station that is viewed from indoors with binoculars provided, programs, and a staff that is willing to provide oral and printed information. Bird lists and flower lists are provided if you keep checklists of what you observe. No matter how many times you visit or do the driving tour there is something to be discovered. We will return to visit.

Pretty nice antique store. Well organized. But some of the prices seem just a tad high. But I think that they are willing to hang. Always an interesting stop in this area

The temperatures were in the low 30s, so be prepared for the outdoor vendors not just the inside portion. The inside can be very crowded. Be sure to checkout the outside pretzel place. Worth the visit!

Reviewed By Ben S - Louisville, Kentucky

This is a good sized antique mall. I thought for sure there'd be a good selection in here and some reasonable deals. Not really. A lot of vintage stuff and high prices (2x book on items I am an expert on). A lot of vintage stuff advertised as antique. it's okay.
