What you will love about Denver & Lincoln County
One of Denver's biggest perks is its close proximity to Lake Norman. Lake Norman is a man-made lake in the Denver area. It provides a place for relaxation and helps fuel the generators at Cowans Ford Dam. There's more to Lake Norman than watersports, too. You can go fishing for striped bass or blue catfish on a weekend afternoon. Or you can go birdwatching in the area to track down killdeer, field sparrows, or bald eagles.
Beatty's Ford Park is one of Denver's best parks! Beautiful area with full playground, a splash pad, a covered picnic area and plenty of walking trails. Also offered is disc golf and a boat launch area.
Near the town's main street is Rock Springs Park Preserve, a 108 acre public park that offers a large playground, event shelter, amphitheater, walking trails, and an outdoor classroom/wildlife viewing area.
Events and Fairs
Denver hosts many fairs, including Renaissance festivals and apple festivals in the fall. Head to the Lake Norman Beer Festival for some craft brews or visit the Amazing Maize Maze to get lost in a corn maze.
As another option, head to nearby Rockwell and visit Tiger World to see a variety of wildlife in the flesh. See a red kangaroo, corn snake, emu, or liger on your visit to this endangered wildlife preserve. You can learn about why these animals are endangered — and what you can do to help them out.
You can see raptors and ostriches at other preserves in the area. Or you can turn your attention to cultural venues.
