Denver Zoo - Free Days, Friday 2/6 and Saturday 2/7
2300 Steele Street, Denver, CO 80205
Denver is blessed to have an amazing zoo. In fact I spent 5 years of my teenage life working at the zoo. Despite the many hours that I was there, I never really got tired of the zoo. Certain animals were just always entertaining - I'm talking to you elephants, monkeys, and any baby anything... anyway, I digress. This weekend it's going to be super nice, like 68 degrees nice and you can visit the Denver Zoo for FREE Friday and Saturday. Just be prepared for a crowd and get there early to secure a parking spot.
Four Mile Historic Park - Free Friday 2/6
The Four Mile Historic Park features Denver's oldest standing structure - aptly named, the Four Mile House, built in 1859. Your FREE admission on Friday, will get you a guided tour of the House Museum, try out gold-panning, and get a peek into pioneer past.
Denver Art Museum - Free Saturday 2/7
100 West 14th Avenue Parkway, Denver, CO 80204
One of the current exhibits, Matisse and Friends actually ends 2/8, so if you haven't had an opportunity to visit it yet, this could be the perfect opportunity. The Denver Art Museum has an extensive collection of different periods and styles of art - Everything from European to Textile to Architecture. It would be pretty difficult to see all in one day, so I recommend planning on what you would like to see. Another exhibit that is getting a lot of attention is the Cartier exhibit, which is NOT included in the free admission, however if you do want to visit while you are there, I recommend purchasing tickets now. Many of the time slots for this exhibit are already sold out.
