Many tourist attractions in Denver are a product of Colorado's Wild West heritage. The Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum is a case in point, telling the story of William F. Cody, made famous for his tent shows portraying cowboys and Indians to audiences nationwide. History buffs will also enjoy the Molly Brown House Museum, where the "unsinkable Molly Brown" lived during her days in Denver. 40,000 people each year enjoy her Victorian home and learn about upper class life during Denver's frenetic mining days.
A completely different kind of history can be found at the United States Mint, which has been producing official US currency for well over a hundred years. Although reservations are required, tours are free of charge and begin on the hour, Monday through Friday from 8am to 2pm. The tour shows guests the complete process of making coins from beginning to end and lasts 20 minutes.
Fans of trains will also find much to do in Denver. The Colorado Railroad Museum showcases over 70 locomotives that traveled the narrow and standard gauge railroads of the state during the heyday of train transport. Afterwards, visitors can enjoy a touch of whimsy at Tiny Town Railroad, located 30 miles from the city center. Everything in Tiny Town is scaled to one-sixth size, including the steam-powered locomotives and more than 100 buildings.
Denver homes for sale include lofts, condominiums, and single family dwellings in and around the city's many exciting attractions.
