Many of our guests here at Eldora Lodge in breathtaking Wondervu spend a week in the great Denver area exploring Rocky Mountain National Park, touring world-class breweries, and adventuring on a zip line, whitewater raft, or kayak. You should also take one day to venture into nearby Denver to discover what makes this lively city so magical. The greater Denver population has now risen above 2.8 million, which includes charming Golden CO. This metropolis is filled with exhilarating activities, majestic beauty, and inventive restaurants. Eldora Lodge remains #1 among all hotels in Golden CO, according to TripAdvisor. We’re a short drive from the region’s best parks and attractions; remember to spend an afternoon or evening at one of these Denver staples!
Red Rocks Amphitheater
Red Rocks is one of the most iconic music venues on the globe. It’s dashingly constructed into the base of an enormous vermillion rockface in the vast Colorado countryside near Morrison. The music venue is located inside Red Rocks Park, only 26 miles south of Eldora Lodge. On the night of a concert, the amphitheater comes to life just before dusk with musicophiles from across the world. In 2018, Red Rocks will host Nine Inch Nails, The National, Jason Isbell, Beck, Portugal. The Man, The Avett Brothers, Imagine Dragons, Sarah McLachlan, Bryan Adams, and Vance Joy.
Coors Field – Colorado Rockies
The world champion Broncos (NFL), Avalanche (NHL), and Pioneers (NCAA hockey) all play in the fall, winter, and spring, which makes the rising Colorado Rockies organization the hottest ticket during the summer. Outdoor baseball on a clear, warm summer evening is tough to beat. Coors Field is a spotless ballpark with tasty food, refreshing craft beer, and lengthy home runs. Grab a pint inside Coors Field at The SandLot Brewery before or after the game. Coors Field is widely regarded as one of the top ten ballparks in Major League Baseball, which will become evident after spending an evening alongside the purple and black faithful.
Denver Zoo / Denver Botanic Gardens
The Denver Zoo and Botanic Gardens are two separate establishments, but combine to form a great day trip as they’re only six blocks away from each other. We highly recommend visiting both non-profits in succession before catching a ballgame at Coors Field or a concert at Red Rocks. The diverse plant life, artwork, and architecture at the Botanic Gardens make it a can’t-miss stop in Central Denver. This 24-acre sanctuary has gorgeous Japanese, waterlily, and ornamental gardens. The Denver Zoo has over 4,000 animals and 600 species on its 80-acre facility. Make friends with kangaroos, leopards, sea lions, penguins, and Komodo dragons before grabbing a souvenir at the gift shop on your way out.
