Yesterday, on the heels of posts such as Denver's top eleven hidden tourism gems and the thirteen best free day trips from Denver, we shared part one of a new list: Denver's best free attractions and tours. In it, we counted down the first half of a roster featured on Visit Denver's Denver.org site -- slots seventeen through ten.

Today, you'll find picks nine through one, complete with photos, links and Visit Denver text. Check them out below.

Number 9: Littleton Historical Museum

this is bogus, what about lookout mountain and buffalo bills grave, coors brewery tour, either of those would have been better than some of these llisted.

No way that a skate park should outrank red Rocks. and FYI, Garden of the Gods is not in Denver

This article should be titled "Front Range Best Free Tours". Boulder and Colorado Springs are NOT Denver.

The Littleton Museum has been on our go to list since out kids have been little. The wife and I still go just to relax and see the Animal Babies. If you like history or you remember things like "Little House on the Prarie" its good for a weekend afternoon. Check out there  website because they do some cool stuff with reinactors.

Some of these are not in Denver, so shouldn't the article be called Colorado's best free attractions?

It's not free, but I like to take people to Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret. It's always a blast. :)

I love, love the Denver Botanical Gardens. After that, who can pass up a trip to Belmar to enjoy the fresh air? Or Lookout Mountain for a great view?
