If you have kids (and quite frankly, even if you don’t), the Denver Zoo should be on your list. Set in City Park, the zoo is home to nearly 4,000 animals, from Komodo dragons to elephants and rhinos. Naturalistic habitats, such as the Primate Panorama, Predator Ridge and Tropical Discovery, create a rich experience for zoo visitors, as well as a beneficial environment for the animals. Don't miss the zoo nursery, which often houses baby animals. It has a special viewing window that lets you see the little guys up close. The zoo is one of the top things to do in Denver for families, and with over 300 days of sunshine here a year you can plan a visit nearly any time you vacation here. You can drop a couple of bucks on hot dogs from one of the food vendors in the park, but we like to take a picnic lunch to enjoy in the shade of one of the big trees scattered throughout the zoo.
