Denver Inside and Out

Looking "For things to do in Denver?" Denver Inside and Out has launched a new heritage tour based in the 1922 Denver Mint Robbery in which participants unwittingly become accessories in Denver's most famous crime mystery.  The walking tour takes place in downtown Denver and visits many of Denver's  most noted landmarks. Using old fashioned elbow grease and shoe leather, participants get to unravel one of Colorado's most notorious crimes. Head scratching clues combined with characters from the heist who come to life through live street theater make this an experience participants will never forget.

“This is a great way for tourists and locals to discover what downtown Denver has to offer," said Amy Cashel, founder of Denver Inside and Out. "Participants get wrapped up in piecing together the clues as the Mint robbery is one of Denver’s most fascinating stories."
