—Audio Tours: Take advantage of our recently launched Audio Tours, which allow for getting outside to explore Denver’s architecture in a safe, socially-distanced way. On August 4, DAF released two significant audio tour journeys, titled Downtown Denver: A Game of City and Empire Builders and Civic Center Park: A Speerian Play. These FREE tours feature 24 locations historically significant to Denver and Colorado and highlight more than a century of Denver’s architecture and cultural history. The project was paid for in part by a grant from the History Colorado State Historical Fund.
