Trot Around Town on a Tour - Aug. 14, Sept. 12 & Oct. 24

If you’re like us, you may not get out of Boulder County much. That’s why when you do visit the big city, it’s nice to know there are tours to tell you where to go and what to see.

Some of the more interesting are the public-art walking tours sponsored by the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs. The Denver Civic Center tour takes you to the postmodern Denver Public Library and past the downtown’s best-known art, including the city’s most famous statue, Alexander Proctor’s bronze “Bronco Buster,” and Beverly Pepper’s towering, abstract “Untitled” monoliths. The one-hour tours are free, but limited to 15 people; sign up by calling Rudi Cerri at 720-865-4307 or e-mailing Dates are Aug. 14, Sept. 12 and Oct. 24 at 11 a.m.

Check the website at for other walking tours, including ones at the Denver Performing Arts Complex and the Colorado Convention Center.
