There are so many reasons to celebrate the season of fall. The beauty autumn brings to nature is unmatched, people are gathered to celebrate holidays, romance is in the air, and there’s just a different feeling filling the air. With so much happening, taking some time to have some fun can be hard to remember, especially in downtown Denver where you have a million options at your fingertips. But never fear: to help you experience the best of fall fun in Denver, we’ve come up with a list of the best activities to try, whether you’re alone, with that special someone, or with a group of your best friends.
Bear Creek Trail
When most people think of Denver, their minds immediately go to the mountains and the beauty of nature. Truly, they are awe-inspiring – but there’s nothing that compares to the vibrant colors of the mountainside foliage in autumn. Bear Creek Trail is an iconic hiking trail that connects the city to the mountains and perfectly encapsulates the gorgeous views that people from all over see when they imagine Denver. Whether you just want to hike or you plan to spend the day picnicking, Bear Creek is the best way to appreciate the beauty of fall.
Denver has incredible historic landmarks, but more people need to appreciate the true original landmark of the city, which is Larimer Square. Larimer is where the Mile High City truly began and is described as its oldest and most historic block. The signature canopy lights over the street offer a vibrant atmosphere where friends and family gather for shopping at the independent boutiques and one-of-a-kind restaurants. And at night, the energetic bar and club scene make for a fun-filled evening on the town with a vintage vibe only Denver can offer.
A hallmark of fall is the sweet smell of budding romance… or at least the wishful thinking. And the best way to either get to know your date or relish in the single life with your friends is by escaping the dropping temperatures outside to try your hand at a puzzle room. Denver is the escape room Mecca, and EscapeWorks is the best facility around, so you’re guaranteed an excellent experience. And the fall fun doesn’t have to end there, because it’s easily paired with other activities, whether you wanted to include the previous options or other attractions on your agenda. No matter who you bring with you, EscapeWorks is a Denver essential you absolutely have to explore.
A fun-filled fall day in Denver is nothing you’ve ever seen before and is something you won’t be able to find anywhere else. Whether you’re a lover, a loner, or the life of the party, there’s always something for you to explore. If you want to try out any of these activities, they’re all available on a “walk-in” basis, but if you want to ensure a timeslot at EscapeWorks, reserve your spot here.
