Great view

Lookout mountains and The Red Rocks were beautiful, easy to find and the view was very romantic. Gets dark really early so travel early in the day for better a view

Denver is in the front range of the Rockies, and any park in the mountains will give you beauty, breath taking views and exercise. Depending on when you go, you may also see a lot of people. The mountain parks attract a lot of visitors, so be prepared to share nature. If you are able to get on any trail,... More

We took a half-day tour with the Grayline. They took us to Buffalo Bills grave, Red Rocks visitor center. Nice driver who told us a lot, but not worth the money.

Denver, many, many years ago, had the wisdom to buy park land outside the city limits. It's great to have these treasures saved for us and so nearby. That being said, if you are a tourist, you might choose more dramatic and famous parks to visit. Anyway, hikes are not too far away from city dwellers who need a break.... More

The Colorado mountains are spectacular. There are lots of cool trains and gorgeous sights. Completely worth is.

We took a ten-hour coach tour and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Spectacular sights, interesting commentary, and we saw quite a bit of the local wildlife including an Osprey. Loved it!

This was a wonderful surprise on our 30 day vacation. The park had lots of wonderful scenic trails to be explored. As we're seniors, we didn't do any hiking, but had we been 20 years younger, off we would have gone. We made our way driving through the park and enjoying the beautiful scenery and outstanding rock formations. We had... More

Grayline does this tour and it is great! I highly recommend adding the afternoon Denver City Tour to make a whole day of it. I got some beautiful pictures from this tour. Grayline is the best. The drivers and tour hosts are very knowledgeable about the area and I learned a lot. Joanne is also super nice too when booking... More

I did a bus tour of Rocky Mountain park that I found on Viator an it was by far the highlight of my week long trip to Denver. The views are breathtaking and the most beautiful that I have had the pleasure of seeing so far in my life.
