Get your culture on.

A peek at South Denver’s arts and entertainment scene.

Sure, downtown Denver is easily accessed via light rail or I-25. But phenomenal arts and entertainment are even closer.

For starters, the Lone Tree Arts Center offers a nonstop roster of exciting cultural events including plays, musicals, opera and concerts ranging from jazz to classical. The center also hosts special events like casino nights, art exhibits and children’s science programs.

The City of Lone Tree sponsors some of the area’s most popular events, including an annual Arbor Day celebration, summer concerts and outdoor movies. And residents love the farmer’s market, held every Saturday during the summer. There’s also a spectacular outdoor concert venue nearby at Fiddler’s Green in the nearby Denver Tech Center.

A mere ten minutes up I-25 takes you to the Villages at the Landmark, an upscale entertainment district that’s home to Comedy Works South, featuring national headliners, and a Landmark movie theater. And speaking of movies, Heritage Hills is surrounded by theaters, including United Artists Meadows Stadium 12, United Artists Greenwood Plaza Stadium 12 and AMC Theatres Highlands Ranch 24.

And just in case you need to break out of your dinner-and-a-movie rut, try the indoor skydiving at nearby SkyVenture Colorado.
