Thanks to its great location, residents will be able to continue exploring outside the community and take full advantage of all the wonders that the city of Denver has to offer. The largest city and capital of Colorado, Denver is a trendy city with plenty of breweries, restaurants, and things to do.
Some of the most popular spots around the city include Union Station, which serves as both a working public transportation station and a highly popular dining and shopping center, and the Denver Art Museum, which showcases over 70,000 works by famous artists like Vincent Van Gogh and Winslow Homer.
Of course, to really embrace the city, one great way to get involved is to take a visit to Coors Field, home of Major League Baseball’s Colorado Rockies.
Because this is Colorado, there is no shortage of scenic mountains and trails in the distance, all of which are easily accessible. Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre is just 25 miles away from the city and is a not to be missed destination. The park is filled with spectacular rock formations, valleys, a natural meadow, and trails. The park is a highly popular spot especially in the summer thanks to its summer concert series, with a number of famous musicians and groups playing here in years past, including the Beatles and U2.
A bit farther away is Rocky Mountain National Park, which features over 400 square miles of natural beauty to uncover, including lakes, waterfalls, and unique wildlife to observe. The park is a true highlight not just in the state of Colorado but in the entire United States in general.
With so much to see and do, Windsor Gardens is a unique and amenity-filled community, whose status as Denver’s only active adult community makes it one in a million.
