A Must-Visit State Filled With Something for Everyone

Denver is full of outdoor adventures, a thriving cultural scene, and 300 days of sunshine! The Mile High City is a perfect host city for the players and families attending the CCM Denver this September, not only enjoying a premier hockey experience but also making memories outside of the rink. We would like to encourage attendees to make the most of their time in this growing city by experiencing  Denver’s must-visit attractions.

You’ll visit five different eateries spanning from pizza to empanadas and everything in between. With sweet and savory dishes on the menu, this is the perfect way to experience all the delicious food Denver has to offer.


2.    Red Rocks Amphitheater

Designated a National Historic Landmark by the National Park Service and Department of the Interior, Red Rocks Amphitheater is a top tourist destination. It’s a well-known concert venue, serving as host to world-renowned artists, and is also a park that is open to the public. The spectacular view and prime location make it a must-see during your time in Denver. Rumor has it Greensky Bluegrass will be making an appearance on September 16 and 17, which sounds like the perfect reason to visit Red Rocks!
