Enjoy a stroll in one of Denver’s most historic areas, Larimer Square. Its history extends back to the 19th century when Colorado was all about gold and the famous gold strike that put this beautiful State firmly on the map! The field was once home to many ‘firsts’; first bank, first dry goods store, first bookstore, first theater, and also the site of the city’s first post office! Some of the old buildings remain but the new ones are just as good and are home to some great restaurants and shops selling unusual and unique gifts. Worth bringing the family to see the shop decor too. Apart from that, you can also visit https://denver-real-estate-and-homes.com/denver-colorado-4k-drone-video/ to watch the more beautiful scenery of this city.
Then, head to the Colorado State Capitol. This is a very beautiful building and well worth a short visit while you are in Denver. Built-in the 1890s from Colorado white granite, the building officially opened in 1894. You’ll be amazed at the care that went into the decor as well, the gold dome of the structure consisting of real gold leaf, commemorates the Colorado Gold Rush! The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Place, becoming part of the Denver Civic Center National Historic District District in 2012. Take a tour and climb the narrow staircase to the dome itself; You will be amazed by the spectacular views you will see!
Finally, don’t forget to visit the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. This enchanting museum, a super place for the whole family, comes with an even more interesting story! Starting his life in 1868, naturalist and pioneer Edwin Carter, who had dedicated his life to his true love – the birds and mammals of the Rocky Mountains – had decided to put together what turned out to be one of Colorado’s most inclusive faunal collections, and began exhibiting his treasures of its log house, dubbed the Carter Museum. This was later extended to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. There are plenty of interesting exhibits to view, including a striking wildlife exhibition hall and a hands-on exhibition in outer space. The museum also has many traveling exhibits, including the Robot Exhibition, where kids can build their robot using robotic cubes, each of which has a different function!
