As a graduate student I have taken full advantage of the free light rail/bus pass to explore the city.The freedom of this pass has allowed me to explore the downtown area without having to worry about driving or parking. There are multiple free or low cost opportunities to find out what Denver is all about. Once a year the city of Denver hosts a free museums night. Free museum night is fully funded by the city which has coach buses take you to and from multiple museums. Aside from just the one night of the year there are other opportunities to go to museums for free throughout the year. Aside from the museums a must do is going to the monthly art walk on Santa Fe. The art walk occurs the fist Friday of the month in the art district which has a wide array of studios, galleries and shops to brows through. Aside from the unique art work there are also many other venders who come and provide food via food trucks, sell drinks and hand made local items.
