What to expect

Folks have been drawn to Denver for over a century- discover why on this downtown adventure exploring its rich history!

Your tour begins at the Colorado State Capitol. You might get the chance to step inside with your guide and take in the awe-inspiring architectural features of this historic building and learn more about the founding of the Queen City of the Plains. From there, you’ll move downtown to the historic Brown Palace Hotel. Built in the 1890s, this hotel harkens back to turn-of-the-century western elite and pioneers looking for new opportunities in the Rockies. Afterward, you’ll see the more modern side of Denver, entering LoDo (Lower Downtown). Get your architecture fix as you pass through the popular 16th Street Mall, home to street food, art and local musicians. Your guide will help you avoid the tourist traps and find the local gems for food, shopping and nightlife. Continue on towards the most historic and photogenic Larimer Square. Hear about the founding of the city, and you’ll quickly discover why Denver has attracted people from across the country for more than a century. You'll end your downtown Denver experience at the hub of historic LoDo, Union Station, restored to its former glory and the main train station in town.
