Have fun. Save money. Denver free days and free things to do in Colorado.

Denver and the state of Colorado are top travel destinations, with new adventures seemingly around every corner. During the summer, our parks showcase America's finest outdoor landscapes. And during the winter, the skiing is a must for any active outdoor adventurer.

Our leisure time can get expensive, and we'd like to help. Whether you are a Denver resident looking for free things to do in Denver for the kids, or you're planning your Denver vacation and are looking for Colorado's best free parks, free museums and free tours, I hope you'll find fun and interesting activities even when money is tight.

Aspen Nordic Center (always free)

Category: Skiing Biking & Other Sports Last Updated: Monday, 04 May 2015


For vacationers to Aspen, the Aspen Nordic center provides probably the ultimate cross country ski and snowshoe experience in Colorado, and it is entirely free!


If you are traveling to the Aspen / Snowmass area during the winter, be sure to check out the free Aspen and Snowmass nordic trail systems, with over 37 miles of groomed classic and skate trails as well as snowshoe trails for hikers and their dogs. You can even link up trails to Basalt creating a system over 60 miles long! This is a popular Aspen attraction for outdoor lovers in the winter. The winter scenery is absolutely amazing, particularly on bluebird days or during heavy snowfalls. This is a free Colorado attraction that I highly recommend.
