After another long winter in the Mile High City, spring has officially sprung across the front range!
While every season in Denver brings something special along with it, there’s nothing like the warming weather, blooming foliage, and longer days that spring provides.
And you can take full advantage.
In this article, we’re giving you 7 of the best spring activities in Denver so that you can experience all the incredible offerings of the city!
We thought so! Let’s dive right in.
Colorado Rockies Game
It’s no secret that catching a Colorado Rockies game at Coors Field provides some of the best vibes around.
We certainly missed The Rockies in 2020 due to the pandemic, but the team just announced that capacity for opening day (April 2nd vs. The Los Angeles Dodgers) will be 42.6%.
That means this spring more than 21,000 fans will be able to visit Coors Field for a game!
While The Rockies aren’t thought to be much of a contender this year, win or lose, it’s a great way to pass a night in LoDo. When it comes to spring activities in Denver, a classic ballgame should be at the top of your list!
Denver Botanic Gardens
Is there any time of year that visiting the Denver Botanic Gardens isn’t a great option?
And there’s no better time than the spring. The bloom is officially underway, making for a perfect outing with the family or date with that special someone to catch the flowers!
Located just behind Cheesman Park in southeast Denver, it’s easily accessible to every neighborhood in the Mile High City! Don’t miss out.
Looking for a spring activity in Denver that keeps you active around the house?
Believe it or not, growing at altitude is entirely possible — making for an awesome opportunity to introduce fresh fruits and veggies into your meal planning.
Because the spring can be a little bit cooler, the best things to grow are typically:
- Leafy green vegetables (lettuce, cabbage, brussel sprouts, kale, spinach, chard)
- Herbs (parsley, mint, oregano)
- Other assorted veggies (radishes, beets, onions, turnips, leeks)
