Photos: Denver's top eleven hidden tourism gems
Last month, we shared a post about Denver's top twelve tourist attractions based on attendance, as calculated by Visit Denver.
Big photos below.
But what about those places that are well worth checking out but aren't nearly as well known as Red Rocks and the 16th Street Mall? Visit Denver's Denver.org site features a top-eleven list (because ten just weren't enough) of what it describes as "hidden gems." Look below to see its picks, complete with photos, contact info and Visit Denver text.
