Unique things to do in Denver

Book unforgettable activities hosted by locals on Airbnb.

Travel like a local

Denver continues to evolve from its roots as a 19th-century mining town to a hip urban epicenter of art and culture. But ask any Colorado natives, and you’d know the cool factor isn’t anything new — they were just too busy climbing mountains and brewing craft beer to alert us. Discover Denver’s most unique things to do with the local experts through Airbnb Experiences, who can take you on sunrise hikes to Red Rocks, through the city on art tours or pub crawls, and even for activities at an Alpaca ranch.

Goat Hike Along the Ol' Miners' Trail
“Valerie is an awesome host, she made the whole experience very fun and delightful. She is great at bringing the group of strangers together in such a short time. And the goats are just fantastic.” We begin our goat hike at the STAGE STOP, 20 minutes West of Boulder. After introducing ourselves, some Western lore, and the "girls" (goats), we'll start our hike through the historic living museum beginning with the Cloud City mining district. I’ll tell stores from the miners’ journals as I point out relics from their lives and mines. You will be selfing with the goats, taking panoramic pics of the mountain scenery and enjoying the mountain climb. You'll be seeing old mine portals, the school house and root cellar, stone walls, mine tunnels and stone cabin foundations. The land reveals many secrets of the past and I'll be sharing them with you. Along the way there is time for water and breathing. The famous Downhill Goat Race will conclude our adventure. Each hiker will steers her goat down the hillside to the winner’s circle. Back to the STAGE STOP, where we began, I'll offer lunch ideas and local adventures you might enjoy. Then we bid adieu. "The hike with Valerie and her goats was the highlight of our trip. We mistakenly went to Boulder and Denver, when her location and stories offer everything to experience the real beauty and history of Colorado."

Taste Denver Like a Local Foodie Tour
Denver's most unique foodie experience! Each food tour is unique as we rotate through some of our favorite locally owned eateries, so please know up front that each tour is planned individually and is not a daily rotation of the same tour every time. In the 12 years of food-touring across Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins, Megan has made relationships with dozens and dozens of chefs and restauranteurs. So, that enables our tours to be different as we feature many different places total but only 5 or so per tour. We'll meet, greet, and then head to stop one to eat. On our food tours, guests will learn about the local Denver food scene, taste chef's choice foods and bartender's choice beverages, and learn about the neighborhood we're touring. We currently explore LoHi for our AirBnB Experience. Guests learn the exact itinerary at the start of the tour, but can expect at least five stops over the course of three hours. And we always end with dessert! Eat, drink, walk repeat! Dietary restrictions and food allergies communicated in advance are usually easily accommodated. Your guide will either be Megan (local food tour owner) or Linnea (local food writer).

However seating is limited and prioritized for paying participants work order will go: -Pick your wood -Assemble the blanks with glue and clamps -Use the drill press to prep our bowls -Carve, sand, shape the pipes - take a quick beer/wine break -Enjoy your new creation! We will be in my shop (Garage) the entirety of the work time and most of the class primarily using a rotary tool with an extension attachment (makes it like using a pen to carve/sand rather than holding the entire tool) Other things to note Any and all experience levels are welcome, I especially encourage folks who have never tried any wood working. I will always be there to help or step in if any step of the process makes you uncomfortable. I can often accommodate custom time slots as well, just shoot me a message anytime!
The Denver Cocktail Tour
We’ll start our tour at the historic and grand Union Station, where we take in the splendor of “downtown Denver’s living room”. Your guide will give a brief introduction to the beginnings of the Mile High City and it’s early associations with alcohol. We’ll then head out into the heart of lower downtown, also known as LoDo. Your guide will navigate you through the historic, brick-building-lined streets to a few of their favorite local bars. You may start out with a delicious libation at one of Denver’s oldest bars or find yourself in the dark recesses of a subterranean speakeasy spilling over with references to the city’s founding pioneers. As you take in the ambience of each establishment, your guide will let you in on the ingredients and background of each drink. You’ll come to appreciate Denver’s place in the realm of cocktails from all over the world, and we may even get to try a truly local twist on time-honored classics. We’ll dispel the myths and shed some light on controversies surrounding a few of the most popular drinks on the menu. Cocktail connoisseur or not, you’ll end your tour with a greater appreciation of Denver’s craft cocktail scene, all the while exploring LoDo’s iconic Larimer Square and surrounding area. If you would like to book this tour for a private group, please message us directly for more information.
Astronomy Tour
A tour for all ages just outside of Boulder (accessible by Taxi, Lyft & Uber). Tours start at sunset and last for 2 hours. The show will explore the night sky with several large telescopes and a laser pointer.

The tour takes place at a easy to find trailhead (no hiking required) where phenomenal sunsets and wildlife are often seen. Guests are provided with a red flashlight, comfy camp seating, bug spray, and bottled water(upon request). Guests are encouraged to bring questions, wonderment, and warm clothing (it can get cool after sunset) I can add availability on most days by request to accommodate your travel plans (the sooner the request the better, I would like to know more than 1 week in advance) Other things to note Please be aware of weather, tour is subject to cancellation if it is too cloudy to see any stars

Your guide to Denver

Where do the locals hang out in Denver?

Lower Downtown (LoDo)

LoDo hosts some of Denver’s best places to eat, drink, and shop, not to mention a list of historic superlatives. The district, which was established as the original city of Denver in 1858, also sits adjacent to Larmarie Square, the oldest block in the city. Whether you are here for a morning stroll, lunch, or a night on the town, there’s always something going on over here thanks to more than 100 dining and shopping spots.

The Lower Highland (LoHi)

This neighborhood serves as the city’s cultural district. Here you can see old and new before your very eyes: Victorian homes, 19th-century brick warehouses, modern apartment complexes, and mixed-use buildings clash from block to block. Still, no one seems to notice (or care) in places like the Avanti Food and Beverage hall, where a variety of vendors serve up fresh fare.

River North Art District (RiNo)

While the Denver Highlands showcases a more polished urban playground, RiNo honors the creatives of the city as the premiere art district. Murals seem to splash onto the sides of buildings in the blink of an eye, as revelers sip on brews at a rockabilly-themed brewery before they head out to an open-house at an art gallery.


What are the best outdoor activities near Denver?

Situated at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Denver is the perfect launching point for some of the best outdoor activities in the entire United States.

Hike Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre

While it may be best known as a concert venue, Red Rocks Park is also a favorite spot, just 15 miles out of Denver, to hike, mountain bike, practice yoga, and more. You don’t have to be an avid hiker to enjoy the sights here, be it along the 1.5-mile Trading Post Trail or the 6-mile loop on Red Rocks Trail. It’s also a great place to catch a sunrise.

Explore Eldorado Canyon State Park

Situated about 30 miles northwest of Denver, this Boulder County state park offers four hiking trails, as well as opportunities to fish, rock climb, picnic, and more. There are some 500 routes for climbers at “Eldo,” as it’s known affectionately by locals, who love going to this hidden gem of a park.

Take a day trip to the Rocky Mountains

Whether you travel into Rocky Mountain National Park, or explore the perimeters, this is one of Mother Nature’s greatest gifts. Peaks rise up from 7,860 feet to 14,259 feet in elevation, making for picture-perfect moments whether you’re on foot or in a car, including the chance at night to enjoy some astronomy as millions of stars explode across the sky.
