The downtown area buildings should be a source of pride. Many towns either never developed them, or tore down some classic architecture (I'm thinking mainly of the 2 DT Arcades, but there's the Library, Heinen's Grocery (no, really, you need to check that out) and quite a few others!

Blossom Music Center: it's not Red Rocks or the Gorge, but it's pretty awesome in its own right, and parking is free. (Granted, it can take you a while to get out, but it's no worse than many similar venues)
