A Weekend in Golden Triangle: Denver’s Creative District

In the very heart of Denver, the Golden Triangle is the creative and cultural axis of the Mile High City. It’s no wonder this neighborhood was named one of the “2018 Best Places to Travel” by The New York Times, with its museums, cultural institutions, and public art — as well as plenty of nearby dining and shopping. Here’s how to spend a weekend in Golden Triangle Denver.

Visit world-class museums and galleries.

There are more than 10 world-class museums and galleries in the Golden Triangle, including the Denver Art Museum, Clyfford Still Museum, and the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Arts. Check out our lineup of unmissable fall 2019 exhibits.

Enjoy the outdoors in Civic Center Park.

With its gold-domed capitol building and Greek amphitheater, Civic Center Park is a dramatic landscape for Kodak moments. Denver’s answer to New York’s Central Park, this large green space features more than 25,000 square feet of flower beds and regular outdoor events, such as the annual Fourth of July fireworks and Denver PrideFest. 

See a performance at the Curious Theatre Company.

Over the past 30 years, the Curious Theatre Company has built a national reputation for thought-provoking theater. The box office is open Monday-Friday from 2-6pm, and we recommend getting tickets one hour prior to performances.

Stay in the Golden Triangle Denver.

When you book a stay at the ART, a hotel, you’re within convenient walking distance of the best museums, galleries, cultural institutions, and outdoor activities in Golden Triangle Denver.
