Colorado Events 2011 - What’s Fun to do This Summer?

The Denver and Boulder areas of Colorado are filled with countless activities for all ages. Aside from the State Parks we have Coors Field which hosts the Colorado Rockies, an abundance of concert venues and local festivals. Here, there is something for everyone.

Coors Field

Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies, is fun for all ages. Coors Field is located at 20th and Blake streets, in Denver’s historic Lower Downtown. The field is easily accessible by car, bike, RDT or by foot. The 72 acre ballpark sits among the most amazing views of the city. If you are sitting on the first-base and right-field lines, you will have an unbelievable view of the Rocky Mountains. Coors Field has been a league leader in attendance since the park open it’s doors back in 1995. Here is a fun fact for you - Coors Field is much different that other parks in the MLB. Did you know that a baseball travels 9% farther at 5,280 feet than down at sea level?
