Beautiful Scenic Spots in Denver, Colorado

Updated: 9 February 2017
Denver is a full of awe inspiring sites, but the city itself is quite a marvel. We’ve found some spots where you can soak in the awe of Denver’s skyline, its surrounding nature, and the mountains that rise over the mile high city.

Confluence Park

Confluence Park is named such because it is at the point where Cherry Creek and the South Platte River come together. The park has several playgrounds and some ‘beach’ access that is very popular during warmer months. Confluence Park is also a great spot to snap a few pictures of Denver’s skyline.

Confluence Park, 2250 15th St, Denver, CO 80202 (720) 913-1311

Wild Animal Sanctuary

The Wild Animal Sanctuary is 30 miles outside of Denver, so if you don’t have much time to spend in Denver maybe you should earmark this attraction for your next visit. However, if you do have the time, you should absolutely go. Walk the ‘Mile into the Wild,’ a mile long flat walk into the park where you can see tigers, antelope, and other exotic animals roam free.

Ruby Hill Park

Ruby Hill Park is atop a hill in the southern part of Denver. During winter, locals flock to Ruby Hill to sled, ski and snowboard down it’s hills, but year round, it is a great place to snap a shot of Denver’s skyline. The park is one of Denver’ highest points, so relax at the newly built pavilion and snap a few souvenir photos.

Inspiration Point Park

Inspiration Point is reminiscent of scenes in movies where the dreamy protagonists pull off onto a cliff side and look out at the view ahead — in this case, the view is the Rocky Mountains. Denver is on a long flat plane, and it’s tough to get a really good view of the mountains on this flat terrain. Inspiration Point is just high enough without any obstructions.

Inspiration Point Park, 4901 Sheridan Blvd, Denver, CO 80212 (720) 865-0900
