Denver Gay and Lesbian Vacations

Your gay Denver vacation

Perched between the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains, Denver's greatest asset is the natural beauty surrounding the city. Nicknamed the Mile High City (or better yet, Queen City of the Plains), leisure time here often revolves around outdoor activities. The mild, arid climate keeps the region comfortable in each season, allowing nature lovers to get their fix year-round.

Denver highlights

  • Hiking around Denver

    Within just a short drive, you can find yourself camping in majestic Rocky Mountain National Park, biking the challenging Apex or Enchanted Forest Trails, or hiking the queerly named Lair O' the Bear Park.

    Hot, hot, hot springs

    The less ambitious will want to visit one of the natural hot springs baths in the area, many of which are clothing-optional. Music enthusiasts should experience Red Rocks, a geologically formed, open-air amphitheater that offers perfect acoustics.

    Denver's gayborhood

    Much of the city's friendly LGBT community is centered in Capital Hill, southeast of the central business district. Here you will find most of Denver's gay bars, along with a number of coffee houses and LGBT shops. Another hot spot for nightlife is Lower Downtown, or LoDo, which is home to many of the city's trendiest clubs and bars.

    LGBT events

    A good time for gay travel to Denver is late June, when the city hosts what has been rated one of the best Pride celebrations in the country -- chock full of cowboys and even rodeo clowns! Skiers and snowboarders should check out Aspen Gay Ski Week, the nation's oldest and largest ski event, held each year in mid-January about four or five hours' drive from Denver.

Insider tips for Denver gay travel

  • Ease in to the altitude

    Take steps to let your body acclimate to Denver's high altitude. Try to limit intense activities during your first day, steer away from alcohol and drink plenty of water to protect against dehydration. And remember that the sun's rays are more intense here, so use that sunscreen!

    The Rockies are west

    Locals will give directions assuming you know which way is north, south and east based on the Rockies. Just remember that the mountains lie to the west, and you'll stay on course.

    Respect the environment

    Denver residents take great pride in the natural beauty that surrounds their city, and they don't tolerate visitors who disrespect Mother Nature. In parks and wilderness areas, never litter, and be sure to heed any posted warnings about bear and fire safety.
