What is there to do in Auraria?


Auraria is full of fun things to do and see! Start your day at Dazdog Coffee, where you can find organic coffee and pastries. Spend your time watching a game at the Ball Arena (aka the Pepsi Center) and then take a walk to Elitch Gardens, a theme & water park, to ride a few rollercoasters. If you’re looking to continue your education, look no further than Metropolitan State University of Denver, located in this neighborhood. Once you’re hungry, check out Tivoli Brewing Co. Tap House for a craft brew and some pub food.
