While in Denver there are a few things you do not want to miss. Famous landmarks, art, and historical museums . The Children's Museum of Denver is where play and learning is fun! Journey into a hands-on environment that sparks creativity, curiosity and imagination. It's where children become amateur scientists, storytellers, artists and engineers. There's even an outdoors KidSport TM center with year-round skiing, snowboarding and inline skating lessons. The Colorado History Museum has the area's largest collections detailing the colorful lives, history, and diversity of Colorado's people - the Indians, Hispanos, miners, pioneers and others who came to call this country home. Our state's historic treasures, including outstanding collections of American Indian artifacts, detailed dioramas, and compelling photographs, reflect over a thousand years of life in Colorado and the West. Time for dinner? Denver has plenty to offer, ranging from seafood to steaks and from Indian to Japanese. Make no mistake Denver has more to offer than just dinner. Look for great restaurants serving outstanding breakfasts, great lunches as well as savory dinners. Please look below for some of Denver's various types of restaurants, cafes and pubs. You will surely find something you like. Friendship isn't always easily described. The Eskimos, they say, have a hundred different words for snow. Unfortunately, the English language isn't quite as innovative, though it has vast opportunities to differentiate meaning. Certainly, Love is one of those opportunities. And so, too, is Friendship.
Instead of different words, however, we're stuck with simple adjectives. Close friend. Best friend. Childhood friend. Intimate friend. Trusted friend. Beloved friend. But whether you use adjectives or different words, few could deny the nearly infinite meaning in such a simple word.
Friends are special people. We can't pick our family, and we're sorely limited in the number of them at any rate. Society and mores (and often our own conscience) dictate we select a single mate. But our friends can be as diverse and infinite as the adjectives we choose. Our friends, in a very real sense, reflect the choices we make in life.
Dynamic Denver Weather
I would guess that if I made a living from making weather forecasts then Denver would be one of the most interesting places to be.
Denver has some pretty crazy weather because of our geography. We are on the edge of the plains and against the Rocky Mountains. We have an arid climate that makes a landscape somewhere between prarie grasses and the cactii of the Southwest.
Denver gets more days of sunshine in an average year than most places that you think of as being sunny in the US, more than Houston, more than Miami.
It's not uncommon to get several inches of snow and then have that sun come out and melt it away by noon. Living at the altitude of 1700 meters and the same latitiude as Madrid, Spain makes for a powerful sun.
Winter is cold, often clear and January and Febuary are actually pretty dry months. Cold snaps happen and lows will dip below 5 (-15 C.) degrees several times.
Spring is when we get rain, big sloppy snow flakes, and frequent warm days with the occasional afternoon thunderstorm. These are wet months in Denver.
Summer is pretty warm, and lately getting warmer with each passing year. Highs often get into the 90's (over 32 C.) with more frequent thunderstorms.
Fall is one of my favorites. Warm and almost hot days that start out cold and crisp. Early snowstorms do sometimes dust the city as early as September.
If you don't like the weather in Denver - wait 5 minutes.
Dynamic Denver Weather - I wonder if this is why the National Weather Service has a major office in nearby Boulder.
The Auraria Campus
Next to the church is the friary, rebuilt in 1936 on the old foundations by the May Bonfils Trust. The friary is decorated by a colonnade, Stations of the Cross, and a shrine to St. Francis.
I assume now it is a part of church, at least, I never saw any monachs around :-)))

Denver has four sports teams.
Baseball - Colorado Rockies
Basketball - Denver Nuggets
Football - Denver Broncos
Hockey - Colorado Avalanche
Out of those four, they love hockey and football the most. If you are in Denver on a Sunday when the Broncos are playing, you're in for a treat! The city goes nuts. Try to get out to Mile High Stadium if you can.
THE DENVER BRONCOS
THE TWO-TIME SUPER BOWL CHAMPION DENVER BRONCOS play their home games in this beautiful new stadium. Tickets are mighty hard to come by. But even if there is no game scheduled, you can visit the stadium (be sure to see the magnificent sculpture of a herd of wild horses just outside the stadium). There is a nice Bronco gift shop there as well, and the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame. The Hall of fame is open Tues-Sat. 10 - 3, and is free.
Tours of Invesco Field at Mile High begin each half hour and are 75 minutes in length. Adults $8, children & seniors $6, and groups $5.
