      I'm moving to Denver with my best friend, from New Orleans with NO car. We are going to take advantage of the transit lines. Can anyone point me in the direction of a safe and cheap part of town walking distance of the Transit line? Thank you, and we would love to meet y'all locals!

    • September Adventure Activities for 18 & 20 year old kids & mom

      Rocky Mountain National Park Apr 10, 2014 at 1:37 PM

      Going to spend a week at a cabin in Estes Park on the river. Although I want to do a lot of hiking & taking photoes & viewing wildlife, my kids are at the age where they also want adventures. They are both very physically fit, outdoorsy & extremely adventurous. In or around Rocky Mtn Park/Estes Park do they offer activities such as off road adventures with ATVs, Jeeps or Rzrs? Maybe some zipline courses through the forest? Rafting? Any other exciting activities? Thanks

      A place to meet outside security at Denver Airport

      Denver Apr 5, 2014 at 7:59 PM

      The Official Spousal Unit is heading to Denver Airport Monday morning on American. Once there, she will meet up with a co-worker coming in from Toronto on United, who will arrive an hour or so later.

      The OSU will pick up checked luggage and wants to find a place like a food place to wait for an hour or so for her compatriot, preferably near the baggage claim and/or the Budget rental car desk.

      However, she complained to me that after looking at the Denver Airport website, she couldn't figure out what was inside security and what was outside, nor why there were six levels (that seems to be at least three more than other airports).

      I said that the Old Experienced Traveler would take a look...and heckfire if she isn't right - the Denver website is remarkably unclear about what's where. Sure, you know what level things are on, but what is airside and what is landside?

      For example, is the Jeppesen Terminal largely landside? Is the food court on Level 6 inside or outside security? It seems like it is, but many US airports have virtually all their services inside security, and the wording here is remarkably fuzzy.

      Or, to put it another way, if you had an hour to kill at 9 in the morning (or whatever) waiting for your ride to show up to go to the Budget counter, where would you wait for him nearby?

      Thanks!

      cozy breweries or restaurants in Colorado Springs

      by lisa85202 Online Now Jun 18, 2012 at 4:30 PM

      I'm headed up to Garden of the Gods/Pikes Peak region in July, driving up from New Mexico and would like to enjoy a local brew while I'm passing through- maybe as stop for lunch before we head to the campground. Any suggestions for me? I like cozy/casual atmosphere, nothing fancy, I will be with kids and dressed for a camping trip. Center/West side of town preferred.

      Requesting a suggested 4 day Colorado itinerary!

      by swdke Online Now Mar 14, 2012 at 6:21 AM

      I've just booked a flight to Colorado Springs for an extended weekend trip in August. Plan is to fly to Colorado Springs, arrive at 9 AM on a Friday. Returning home on following Monday, departing at 5:30 PM. This gives me from 9 AM Friday, all day Saturday, Sunday, and a good portion of the day on Monday. Basically, I see my itinerary has having 4 days, and 3 nights. I am looking for a suggested day by day itinerary, what to see/do, what towns to overnight in.

      I do know I want to take the cog railway up to Pikes Peak, and I want to do a drive through Rocky Mountain National Park. Also, interested in visiting either Aspen, or Summit County or both.

      Following is a list of attractions that I've noticed:

      •Pikes Peak
      •Rocky Mountain National Park/Estes Park
      •Seven falls
      •Garden of the Gods
      •Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine in Cripple Creek
      •US Mint tour
      •Coors Brewery Tour
      •Molly Brown House Muesum
      •Aspen
      •Summit County
      •Walk through Georgetown
      •Georgetown Loop Railroad
      •Glenwood Hot Springs

      With regards to the above sights and attractions, it's only just a list of possibilities. Perhaps too many considering I have only 4 days. Also, we are open to other suggested ideas too. The only things on the list that are a "must do" is Pikes Peak and Rocky Mountain National Park. Other than that, I'd like to fill our 4 days with as much sights as possible, or as much as realistically.

      Any suggestions for a day by day itinerary to see and do as much as possible?

      Thank you so much.

      We'll be coming into Colorado Springs on I-70 from Utah tomorrow evening. Is highway 24 better or is I-70/25 through Denver better? I'm assuming that the scenery is better on 24 and that I-70/25 would be faster. Is that correct? And how is 24 at dusk or nighttime?

      Hello. My family and I will be in Colorado Springs in July. We have two children, both under 10. I have read some of the interesting info on the city, but I am just wondering if anyone has "must see" places for us considering the kids. Also, places to avoid? I am also wondering about the altitude issue. Should I worry too much about this? We have never gone to Colorado before, so this will be our first trip and we don't know what to expect. Thanks!

      We are considering (if we can find the time) taking a 2-3 hour whitewater raft trip and renting ATVs for 2 hours in either Durango, Royal Gorge or Colorado Springs (or Estes Park if we make it up there.)

I found some information on www.coloradodirectory.com, but wasn't sure which places would be best.

Are the mountains more impressive in the park than in Durango and Colorado Springs?

      Hi - will be in Colorado Springs with my other half (business trip) and are taking an extra 2 nights (July 12th and 13th) to do some sightseeing. Anyone have recommendations for a nice, not too run-down motel (or hotel) in this area? We really don't like hotels with interior halls and just a small window in the room (stuffy) - prefer direct access to the outside or at least a balcony/patio. Any locals out there, or anyone else who's been there recently? This thing is sort of last-minute and I'm running out of time! Thanks a bunch!

      relocating to COS from France

      by CPE Online Now Mar 12, 2007 at 5:56 AM

      Hi, I am French, living in France for the moment. My husband got a job in COS. He should start in June and I would join him in July with our 3 daughters (2 mo, 2 yo, 4 yo). We are waiting for the visa.
      I am looking for many things concerning our relocation in this city.
      We've already traveled to the US but never to this area, so we know quite a bit about American habits. Yet we've never lived there.
      - We would like to have advice on where to settle in the city. Here are our ideal and main criteria :
      - to rent a house that has a backyard for the kids (we'll think of buying later)
      - to be in a neighborhood that does a lot for kids (parks, activities, nannies...)
      - to be in a quite quiet area (I am worried about the airport, is it really loud?)
      - to be in a safe area
      - to depend on a good school
      - and if possible, to go to work by bike (his company is on Aeroplaza Drive, near the airport)

      I am also seeking advice on child care. At what age can children start school and for how long during the day. What are the solutions for babies and 2 years old children?

      We would have to furnish all our house. Could you give me the best places to go for furniture and appliance at a reasonable price.

      Does anybody know how rent works? ie do you have to show your last 3 paychecks to prove you're liable? Do you need to pay in advance a certain amount...

      My last question for the moment : do you know any organization that could help us think of everything for the relocation, especially as a foreigner?

      I would really appreciate any feedback.
      Thanks in advance
