I am from Ottawa, Canada, and I am planning a surprise trip to Denver CO for my husbands 30th. He is a MASSIVE Die-Hard Broncos Fan and it has always been his dream to see a Broncos home game in Denver.
I am purchasing tickets for the Oct 4th game so we will be in Denver that week. (I am also looking for suggestions on where the best seats are in the stadium... I don't want to mess this up and I'm sure some are better than others - trying to keep it around $300-$400 a ticket)
Other than the Tailgate party, stadium tour and of course.. the GAME!! I am looking for some fun ideas for the remainder of our trip.
I want this trip to be all about him and his favorite things.
Other than LOVING anything to do with football, he is into vintage muscle cars, scotch/whiskey, cigars and of course a good steak. All things I would like to treat him to while we are there.
I of course also want to explore the beauty of Denver, and really just looking for fun things to do and places to see!
Any and all suggestions are very appreciated.
Thank you all so much! :)
We need to transport luggage ( 2 big suitcases) from Denver Airport to Aspen, Colorado? Because it doesn't fit in the car. Are there any options to transport only the suitcases? Thankyou
We have decided to take a couple days and travel to Colorado. I want to see and do as much as I can in 3 days(2 full days). We are staying in Denver and considering renting a car. Should we rent a car or is there another type of transportation that will take us out of the city? Also where should we travel to? We have never experienced snow before so we want to experience winter activities. Thanks!
Planning to visit denver around president's day long weekend . Need travel companion for sharing the expenses.
What is the best way to get from the Amtrak station to the airport? I will need to get a hotel overnight as well.
i am flying from tennessee to idaho (and back) in november with one stop in denver. all flights are on southwest airlines, with connection times 45-50 mins each way. is that long enough?
thanks -- susie margaret
What should i wear from May 29th -June 4th/14 for mostly walking/shopping. I love long dress and hats and hoping to bring some with me. Should i bring extra running/walking shoes with a yoga pants? I don't wear shorts but don't want to feel too hot? Thanks for any pointers.
Is there a tour bus that gives a good overview tour of Denver?
Will be at the downtown Sheraton upcoming weekend, need to find a close or any recreational shop w/Mary's Patches and/or dry medicinal tea. Prices double or tripple some places, I would do the same but I guess I would rather not go to a ' tourist traps.'.....but will.
Is there any particular dress code for clubbing? I'm from England, a tshirt jeans and smart trainers are acceptable here. Or a shirt if it's somewhere particularly smart. Il be going summertime so I'm guessing it will still be hot in the evening. Any advice please?
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!
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?
staying at hyatt place tech center anything worth seeing in walking distance
Will be in Denver for B'Day, staying in Tech Center area. What gentlemen's club would you recommend, friendlier the better? Will have my own transportation so does not have to be in the Tech area. Also any dance bars?
Thanks any input appreciated.
A few friends and I are vacationing out to Denver and need some insight on the best place to stay for guys in there early 20s. Specifically an area with a good vibe and nightlife. I heard downtown denver is good place to research.
We plan on hiking, going to coors field, and Red Rocks amphitheater. Any other ideas for things to do would also be great!
I am going to Denver June 6-8 with my wife and 14-year-old. Essentially, our "free time" will be Friday evening and all day Saturday (before an evening flight). I recognize you can't begin to enjoy all Denver has to offer in such a short time. But if we can only catch 1 or 2 things while we are there, what should it/they be?
Thanks in advance...
me and a friend are going to denver to see two shows at the ogden theatre in may. we're looking for a hotel that is reasonably close to the ogden theater, BUT more importantly walking distance to bars in the downtown area (which seems to be an ok area to go out at night?). we're on a budget, so price is definitely a consideration. we will probably go out after the concerts at the ogden and on a third night just go out to party in general. is there good nightlife around the ogden? if not, where would be a good place to stay within walking distance of good nightlife that is an easy/cheap cab ride to the ogden? thanks in advance for your help.
If we fly into Denver (only to hop on the overnight Amtrak the next morning) what is the best (cheapest) way to get from the airport to the train station?
Looking at USA holiday
The itinerary says we are on the train overnight between Chicago and Denver is this journey scenic?
Or will we not be missing much by travelling overnight ?
Thank you Moira
My family and I (husband, two daughters 11 & 8, plus 3 dogs) will be spending the summer in Denver (we are from Phx). We have narrowed down the two neighborhoods we are interested in and have found several pet-friendly homes, but we can't decide between Highlands Neighborhood and Washington Park. What are the differences? Would you recommend one over the other?
Here is what we would like: walk to shops, restaurants, store, etc., parks nearby, safe and kid/pet-friendly neighborhoods. Is one closer to downtown Denver, can you bike to downtown?
Here in Phoenix, you have to drive to everything, so we are really looking forward to walking and biking :)
Any feedback would be MUCH appreciated!!
Me and my Husband will be spending a few days in Denver flying in from the UK at the end of July. We only have 2 nights in Denver so would would be very grateful to hear of any recommendations on things to see before heading off to Lusk. We will be returning to Denver at the end of the trip to spend a few days in the Rocky Mountain NP.
Also, interested in what the weather will be like that time of year?

Staying at Comfort Inn Downtown - any suggestions for food - not Indian, Chinese, Shushi etc but happy to go with a decent burger/pizza. Would have prefered America - just don't want to get ripped off
I am flying into Denver in the middle of August and visting friends from Boulder. I have found a large variety of white water rafting options in the Denver/ Boulder area and I am hoping someone might have a suggestion on which is the best? I know it may be personal preference but I would love any imput to go on instead of guessing blindly. (the location of the rafting trip would influence if we stayed closer to Denver or Boulder, so both are options)
thank you so much!
I am looking for a place bear denver that rents remote rustic cabins..it would also be good if it were only accessible by horse..thanks
