Photos: Denver's best free attractions and tours, part one

This summer, we've been celebrating Colorado and the Mile High City by spotlighting many of the features found on Visit Denver's site, including our collection of Denver's top eleven hidden tourism gems and the thirteen best free day trips from Denver. But our latest list, featuring the best free attractions and tours in Denver, is so big -- seventeen items strong -- that we're breaking it into two parts. Start today with selections that'll take you into the top ten, complete with photos, links and Visit Denver text -- and the price is definitely right. Check them out below.
