Welcome to the Denver VOICE’s eighth annual tourism edition. Each year, we put together a series of guided tours that showcase the side of Denver you may not be familiar with. We strive to showcase some of Denver’s best hidden secrets — the best, weirdest, and quirkiest places that make up our city.
This year, we take you to see the places you may already know from the silver screen. Sure, Denver is no Hollywood, but we have our own burgeoning TV and film industry. Or take our tour of historical sites. You may be familiar with some of Denver’s most prominent historical locations, such as the Molly Brown House, but have you ever visited the Richthofen Castle? Do you know why the Goosetown Tavern, at 20 years old, is considered a notable part of Denver’s history?
Each tour is unique and specially crafted to bring you to places even the locals may not know. Plus, all are doable with just your feet, a bike, or a few dollars for public transit. No cars necessary! At the VOICE, we strive to focus on perspective and the many different perspectives of a single story. That isn’t true of just poverty and homelessness. Whether you’re local or just visiting, we hope these tours will provide a fun way to see a part of our city you may not have known before, or help you find new layer to the city you already know and love. Enjoy!
