Your 2-hour historical tour of Denver meeting point is at the Colorado Convention Center. Your tour starts at 2pm, so make sure to arrive a little early.

At the center, your guide fills you in on some of Colorado’s state history before you take off on foot headed toward the Lower Downtown (LoDo) area. This is actually one of the most popular areas of the city, and is home to big businesses and local hotspots.

From there, go over to the Auraria area. You might be surprised at some of the historical facts your guide tells you here as you pass by the modern-day arena, educational facilities, and theme park. Your last voyage is to the Highland area where you can hear stories of what this area used to be like.

Your tour ends at Union Station. Walk away with an electronic copy of Insider Guide to Denver, which might be able to help you decide what to do with the rest of your evening.
