Check out what Denver has to offer while you hang with your fellow conference-goers. Denver is a great walking city, and we've got two unique walking tours. Pick up a map and some fellow travelers at the Free Press booth in the Conference Commons.

Five Points: Head over to one of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods, Five Points, where Billie Holiday, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington once played, and check out places mentioned in Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. Five Points is also home to the Black American West Museum and Heritage Center, the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library and the Stiles African American Heritage Center.

While you're in Five Points, you might want to visit the Redline Art Gallery. And right next door you'll find Wonderbound. Denver's newest dance company invites conference attendees to tour its new studio.

Directions: Five Points is about one mile northeast of downtown and is bordered by Downing Street, Park Avenue, Stout Street and Tremont Place. You can pick up the Light Rail/D-Line downtown at 16th Street and California Street and take it to Five Points.

Art district: Visit the city’s art district on Santa Fe Drive, where you can find great exhibits at the Chicano Humanities & Arts Council, the Museo de las Américas and Su Teatro. Santa Fe Drive also has plenty of restaurants, shops and other community art spaces.

Directions: The art district is located on and around Santa Fe Drive and Kalamath Street between Alameda and 12th Avenues.
