Where to Take Your Visiting Friends in Denver

Where to Take Your Visiting Friends in Denver

When you finally get someone to come and visit your hometown, neither of you are going to want to sit around in your house all day. You need to compile an agenda chock-full of the best parts about your city, and Denver is so packed with fun things to do and try you’ll never run out of ideas. Here are four options of where to take your visiting friends in Denver that will please everyone and give them a glimpse of what it’s like to live in the Mile High City.

Take Your Friends to the Great Outdoors

Of course, let’s get the most obvious option on the table first. Where you can take your friends is really a no-brainer, seeing as the first things people think of when they picture Denver are the mountains. The beautiful year-round weather and a plethora of trails around the city make hiking a must-have on every visitor’s agenda. No matter how long you’ve been in Denver, you never get tired of the gorgeous scenery and mountainous trails.

Denver: Puzzle Room Haven

It’s rare to find any other city around the country or even the world that has the number of puzzle rooms Denver does. The Mile High City is often revered in the escape room world as being an escape hotspot, so there’s no better place to bring visitors than one of the city’s many facilities. And, since there aren’t many corporate-franchise locations around, you’ll be supporting small local businesses at the same time! You can research what makes an escape room “the best” to help you decide where to go.

Explore Nightlife in Denver

Even if you’re not over 21, you can enjoy the electric Denver nightlife! Taking your friends to restaurants and clubs in places like Larimer Square is a way for them to experience what sets Denver apart from their own hometown. The aesthetic the city possesses at night is unlike anything other cities around the country are able to replicate, so it will be an adventure everyone will treasure and look back on fondly.

Everyone’s Relaxing Go-To

If you’re not aware of “coffee culture”, 1) you’re missing out, and 2) the first thing you need to know is that every city does coffee differently. Unlike some other major cities, Denver locals are more likely to value the quality of coffee beans and roasts, rather than the speed of the service. A city-wide favorite is Mutiny Information Cafe, a used-books, records, and coffee shop all in one place. Take your visiting friends by Mutiny for a high-quality cup of joe and find out how Denver’s best does coffee.

No matter your age or lifestyle, there’s always something for everyone to love in Denver.

    review rating 5  EscapeWorks Denver was an amazing experience! We did a team outing for 2 large groups with our sales team and everyone came out so impressed. I had never done one but many in our group have, they all were at the conclusion that this was the best they have done so far! Great team building experience and very cost effective if on a budget. Savannah was awesome along with the staff that helped with our experience!

  • review rating 5  My husband and I just happened to walk by and we love escape rooms so we stopped in. They luckily had an opening in the War Games room with just a small wait, but my husband loved the little games/puzzles they had in the waiting room. We had a great time and escaped thanks to our host, Trace! He gave clues at the best times! He didn’t throw too many clues at us so we could figure most of it out on our own, but also didn’t let us stay in one spot for too long! Thanks for making our experience great!

    review rating 5  Lana and Sierra were great! We had a couple of people late and they made sure we all still had a great experience. The Egyptian room was great with thoughtful clues and was just the right difficulty for our group!

  • review rating 5  The staff were very helpful and fun people. We did the beyond the flower shop room theme which was designed well even for our large group of 12 people, but I could see all group sizes enjoying this room. I appreciate the attention to detail to the escape room and the challenges placed throughout. The experience was worth it for our team-bonding event, and I highly recommend this for all types of people. Thanks for all the fun!

    review rating 5  We had so much fun at the Casino Heist room today! Savannah was amazing. The team has created difficult challenges and drop hints that are just enough to move you forward. We can't wait to go back and try another room!

    review rating 5  Very considerate and nice staff and a great time! My group was placed with two other people randomly and they kind of took over the whole puzzle. The employees pulled us aside to let us know what they saw and they wanted to make sure we had a great experience of our own so they gave us a coupon to come back another time. They were really helpful from beginning to end and it was super fun!

  • review rating 5  Emilia did a great job explaining the rules. Wow! What an experience! We did the outbreak room. It was super similar to my childhood growing up! However, this time I was able to leave the room after an hour. What a relief! Anyway, I had a lot of fun and won't be testifying against anyone at this place in the future. Five stars!

    review rating 5  We had a blast! We originally did the Casino Heist, however, there were some complications with the room. Dice and Emilia provided us with wonderful customer service and had us do Outbreak instead. We appreciated how much they cared about experience and we ended up having a great time. Highly recommend if you’re in the downtown Denver area and looking for some fun!

  • review rating 5  Had a great work team retreat activity here. Loved the puzzles and escaping the "flower shop" (aka: 1920s speakeasy). I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a team building exercise or just wanting to have fun.

    review rating 5  This was our very first Escape room we've ever done and it was the perfect choice. Both our guides were phenomenal! Energetic and you can clearly tell they enjoy what they do. We experienced the Egyptian Tomb and finished with 4:33 left on the clock. Next we did the Beyond the Flower Shop. We barely missed it but we had a blast. Will definitely be back!!!!

    review rating 5  EscapeWorks Denver was a great team building event. We did Outbreak and it was very challenging for the entire group. Amelia and Savannah were great setting up the room and explaining our mission. Overall a fantastic experience and highly recommended.

  • review rating 5  Troy and Tommy Bohan with my son Paul Garcia-Lance and myself had the best of times trying to get out of the Egyptian tomb. We were seconds away but fell short of solving the mystery and we’re buried alive. Thank you so much for an enjoyable evening and a special shout out to Taylor and Sierra who moderated our adventure ! We have to return for our group picture and another great adventure!

    review rating 5  My fiancee and I were vacationing in Denver and tried out the Egyptian Tomb with another group of 4. We escaped with 5 minutes to spare! Very good room layout and good props. Puzzles were challenging and rewarding once solved. I was not a huge fan of how they did the hints... usually you have 3 hints or whatever and you ask for a hint when you get stuck, instead they give you hints when they think you need it. Otherwise, our game master, Trace, was very helpful and personable. Overall, very satisfied with our experience!

    review rating 5  The staff was very friendly. Selena and Sierra welcomed us with smiles and helped us get settled in. Taylor did a great job introducing the room to us and giving us a few hints while we were in. He gave us just enough hints to keep us motivated, but we still had to work hard to escape. The room we tried and escaped was Outbreak. It has a low escape probability and we figured out why when we were inside. It was a blast and we can't wait to go back! This is definitely a great idea for a night out, if you want to exercise your mind under pressure.

  • review rating 5  I rented beyond the flower shop room for my wedding party. We had a blast! The puzzles were challenging but fun. There was plenty of room for everyone to work on different puzzles at the same time. We got out with 2 minutes to spare. Shout out to Trace, he did a great job at only giving us hints when we needed it. I don't like it when they're too generous with the hints, takes the challenge out of the experience. This was my third escape room in Denver and I've used a different company each time. I would definitely come back here to try a different room.

    review rating 5  We completed a team event here where we split into teams and competed to finish first. Both rooms had amazing puzzles and it was really fun. I think our company team thoroughly enjoyed both rooms. We completed The Egyptian Tomb and the Casino but one of our members in the casino team can't seem to stop mumbling numbers and math equations.
