When in Denver, baseball fans should take the opportunity to visit Coors Field and take in a Colorado Rockies baseball game. This "mile high" stadium is comfortable and cozy, and you'll have a great seat no matter where you sit.
Plenty of ice cold Coors brew for your drinking pleasure, too.
The Rockies kind of stink lately, but a trip to the ol' ball game is always fun, win or lose.
Equipment: This sporting tip involves viewing, not playing. Just get enough money to buy a ticket or two, and a few beers. Head over to Coors and have a ball.
I suppose you COULD bring a glove in case you have a foul ball hit your way in the stands. But we all know that the only people who catch foul balls at baseball games never have baseball gloves. : )
BTW, the stadium is located at the intersection of Blake and 20th streets. Back when the Rockies were pretty good, they were often called the Blake Street Bombers. Now, thanks to their anemic pitching staff, they mostly get bombed. ; )
This is the home of the Colorado Rockies, apparently, they are a baseball team.
I never went to a game but the stadium looked pretty good (from the outside) and there were several bars in close proximatey which is never a bad thing.
Choppers Sports Grill
One for the armchair fans. We spent a few hours in here one afternoon with nothing else better to do (honestly, the weather was awful).
It was a nice enough setting with plenty of TVs showing different Ice Hockey Play-off matches.
All the normal US food and beers were available.
Incredible College Football Setting
If you are lucky enough to see a Colorado Football game in Boulder - do it. The backdrop with the Flatirons and the campus is amazing. Folsom Field is a really intimate stadium and tickets are not hard to find. Try the Harvest House before and after the game. Go Buffs!
Equipment: It is usually really nice in the fall in Boulder, but the weather can change quickly. Dress in layers.

Those Running and Gunning Nuggs
Playing inside the Pepsi Center for home games are the Denver Nuggets of the NBA. The Nuggets are what you would call a "rebuilding" franchise. The General Manager Kiki Vandeweghe is building a product that is capable of both winning games and is also fun to watch. Utilizing Denver's rarified air the concept employed is to run the visitors up and down the court, and out of breath.
If the Nuggets keep it up this will be one of the hottest tickets in Denver.
Nosebleed seats start at 10 dollars a pop and work up to over 100 dollars for lower level. If you are in need of lower level tickets (for a price) that you are told are sold out to season ticket holders just look for the people outside who are "buying" tickets.
Or ask me - I have a hook-up.
Equipment: They do perform a bag check at the gate. You are not allowed to bring food or drinks (including water) into the Pepsi Center.
Seeing a Rockies game is fantastic! The Rocky Mountain Range is in the background, downtown is right there, the field is gorgeous, and you are bound to see a few homers! I got the chance to see 6 leave the field! Barry Bonds hit one of them. I saw the game with my friends, Abe, Beau, & Ken.

Cycling along Platte River
If you're like me and come from a country where most people have a bicycle or you just like cycling than you can make a lovely trip along the Platte River.
There is a good bicycle path that goes on for i don't know how long, i spend a great day cycling along there.
Found out at the Tourist infomation (16th street mall) where you can rent bicycles, er if you're lucky like me borrow one from a friend.
I think that at the Tourist information you can get a map as well.
You will enjoy a good dat out.
Equipment: Bring along some nice food abd if you,re not shure what to wear ask where ever you rent or borrow a bicycle from what to bring.
And off course never leave home without a repair kit in case you get a puncture.
Colorado Rockies Baseball game
Watching a game at Coors Stadium is an excellent treat, especially if you are a baseball fan. You will probably see a few baseballs leave the stadium before it is all said and done. I saw 6 leave the field on July 10, 2003 (3 by the Rockies and 3 by the Giants, one of which was struck by Barry Bonds). The stadium is very pleasing to the eye, there are mountains in the background and in the stadium itself there is a nice little waterfall and some other rock landscaping. Tickets cost as little as $4 in the Rock Pile, or up to almost $50. I bought mine for $20 and was in the upper level right behind home plate. Abe, Beau, Ken, and I had a great time!
Equipment: A baseball glove to catch a foul ball or a homer!

Invesco Field at Mile High
Eight Sunday afternoons each fall 76,000 football fans jam this stadium to watch their beloved Denver Broncos play football. If all goes well during the regular season fans might get to see two additional (playoff) games during the month of January.
Watch the Rockies at Coors field
Coors field is home to the Major League Baseball Colorado Rockies. Being in the National League west division the most common opponents are the Dodgers, Giants, Diamondbacks, and Padres. The stadium is a brick throwback to the old style, oozing an aura that screams for a future legacy and excellent views of the Rocky Mountains at sunset. Tickets range from 3 to 40 dollars and can be purchased up to Game time at the stadium box office. Beer and other concessions on the other hand can be pretty expensive - expect to pay 5 to 6 dollars for a mass produced pint. The season runs from early April to the end of September. I always hope the Rockies extend this by going to the playoffs.
Equipment: Bring sunglasses at all times. You may want to bring sunscreen for those day games.
Denver Broncos at Invesco Field
If you are a die hard football fan, and you love the Broncos, this place is for you! Stadium is located right next to I-25.
Equipment: Light jacket, and Broncos paraphernalia.

This is a picture of a Cubs and Rockies game where Sammy Sosa hit three homeruns in four at bats, a personal record. It was so exciting.
Coors field was great....Any baseball fan would appreciate the outdoor baseball stadium with it scenic orientation towards the mountains.
