From giant blue bears to giant red chairs, there’s a lot of things to check out in the Mile High City.

Visit Denver keeps a list of attractions people absolutely must see while visiting Denver.  For today’s chart of the week, we look at how many people are actually attracted to the attractions compiled by the group in charge of bringing tourists to the city.

Denverite reached out to each of the attractions for annual estimates or their most recent visitor numbers available. It’s worth noting, not every organization tracks visitors in the same way and some places don’t track them at all. So the attendance numbers provided by the organizations therefore don’t always match up with the Visit Denver rankings.

Warning: Some favorites, like “Blucifer,” were snubbed
