DENVER — Colorado may be hundreds of miles from the ocean, but you can still get an up-close look at sea life in the Mile High City.
The Downtown Aquarium in Denver features a wide variety of animals, from jellyfish and stingrays to sharks and even Sumatran tigers. You can even swim with some of them or go for a shark cage dive. It’s a Mile High Must.
