Best Things to do on Mother’s Day in Denver

What to do for Mothers Day in Denver

Sunday is Mom’s Day and you want to make it special. If you are still looking for the perfect way to celebrate, here are the Neir Team’s top 5 picks of the best things to do on Mother’s Day in Denver.

Pack Your Baskets
Our Mile High City is full of top-notch parks. Why not pack a basket of mom’s favorite treats and enjoy one of these amazing city amenities. While Washington Park, Sloan’s Lake and Central Park are all wonderful options, if you are truly going for one of the best things to do on Mother’s Day in Denver, head to City Park where you can spend an entire day and never get bored.

Start off by working up an appetite on one of City Park’s great rental options. If mom is a landlubber, tour her around in a surrey built for two or four. You can see all the beautiful sights City Park offers including monuments, skyline views and beautiful greenery. For the seafaring, rent one of the many options for exploring the lake, including the water trike. 

When it is time to eat, settle in near the historic City Park Pavilion. From there you have views of the garden and the lake giving you a serene setting almost as beautiful as mom. Finish off your day at the Denver Zoo, where you can see the momma animals caring for their young during this spring season. 

With all these options, it is clear why picnicking in City Park is one of the best things to do on Mother’s Day in Denver.

Take Her Out to the Ballgame
The Colorado Rockies will take on the Milwaukee Brewers at 1:10 p.m. For moms who are true fans, one of the best things to do on Mother’s Day in Denver is to cheer on the home team. In addition to all the game’s exciting action,...

Denver’s Best Rooftops: Where Are They?

Denvers Best Rooftop Patios

Rain. Flowers. Baseball. These are all great signs of spring, but for us, the best one is the start of patio season. Better still are rooftop patios. Get your spring on by visiting our top picks for Denver’s best rooftops.

El Five, 2930 Umatilla St.
Breathtaking views are what you will find at El Five. The downtown skyline sprawls before you with views of the Highlands to the west. It is one Denver’s best rooftops at sunset and when it is dark in the summer, the lights from Elitch’s decorate the sky.

El Five also has indoor seating with floor to ceiling windows that offer the same magnificent views – perfect for those nights with spring showers. Inside you’ll also enjoy the open kitchen and the artwork.

Tapas de Gibraltar is the food focus at this one of Denver’s best rooftops, brought to you by Edible Beat, who also developed the Linger and Root Down concepts. In addition to old and new school tapas and paella, El Five has interesting signature drinks to try such as The Zombie with three rums, lime, falernum, passion fruit and absinthe. Limit two on this one!

Of note: El Five is only open at night so it is not a spot for weekend day relaxing.

54Thirty Rooftop, 1475 California Street
Even though 54Thirty Rooftop is new on the scene (it opened in April), it is already one of Denver’s best rooftops. It is actually above the Mile High City sitting at 5,430 feet up.

The mixologists here came up with a great cocktail: the #Thatviewthough. It has vodka, chamomile tea syrup, lemon, princess yum yum! The nonalcoholic blackberry lemonade is also delish.

On Thursdays, 54Thirty Rooftop is one of Denver’s best rooftops...
