5. Denver

Denver is famous for the Rocky Mountains, but there is much more to Denver. One of the popular neighborhoods is City Park which has the trendy restaurants which lie along Colfax Avenue. Also there is the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science as well as an 18-hole golf course here. Plus, in lower downtown is the famed Tattered Cover bookstore which helped to rank Denver as the 10th most literate big city. Too, if you go upscale, the Washington Park neighborhood encircles a 165-acre park with running and cycling trails and is also lined with gorgeous homes.

To continue on the exercise theme, if it’s exercise you enjoy, there are more than 200 parks and 14,000 acres of parkland in Denver along the foothills of the Rockies. Denver also has about 90 golf courses and some of the best skiing in the U.S. This city is all about fresh air and exercise. As an added incentive to relax in the fresh air, the Red Rock outdoor concert venue is located here.
