United States Mint - Denver

What is now the United States Mint in Denver actually began as a humble company. In 1858, Clark, Gruber and Company started a private mint, making gold coins from the spoils of the Colorado gold rush in order to save on shipping the ore to the east coast. After minting over 500,000 dollars, the US Treasury officially bought the mint in 1863. Today, the mint is a popular tourist destination in Denver, lending insights into the stages and the entire process of currency-making. One of the oldest establishments in Colorado, the mint is touted to be one of the single largest producers of coins in the world. The mint is certainly an iconic repository of American currency, and all currency produced here has the denomination 'D' inscribed on it. Having been considerably mentioned in popular media, the Denver Mint is an indelible historic landmark of the country.

Eldorado Canyon State Park

Nestled in Boulder County, Eldorado Canyon State Park is an entrancing state park is a natural wonder par excellence. A paradise for climbers, mountain bikers, hikers and naturalists alike, this park is encircled by a tapestry of imposing mountain ranges and is a rock climbing and bouldering heaven. The canyon's innermost fabric once sheltered the Native Americans, today stands as a stirring canvas of aged, natural wonders. Many visitors make the trip from Boulder just to rejuvenate their bones within the forested hills and clear mountain streams. Others come just to watch the climbers or to sprawl out and enjoy a picnic, especially during long, bright summers. The park is interspersed with crisscrossing hiking trails, while its summit affords astounding views of its scenic surrounds. Further augmented by stark cliffs, seemingly-gilded rock walls, and agile waters of the South Boulder Creek, the park plays host to other activities like fishing, skiing and snowshoeing.
