Denver, or "The Mile High City", is the gateway to the Rockies. Sitting at 1 mile above sea level (hence the nickname) Denver is ideally situated for travelers who want to explore the outdoors, but also want a taste of city life. In town, Denver has a booming brewery and art scene, head over to the RiNo district to find funky and artsy murals alongside some of the most creative beers brewed in Colorado. For sports fans, the LoDo district is for you, Coors Field, home of the Rockies (MLB), and Mile High Stadium, home of the Broncos (NFL) are front and center and surrounded by sports bars and restaurants. One food stop that should not be overlooked is Union Station. Not only a historic but functioning and popular train station, it's also a luxury hotel and houses many fine dining restaurants. It's the perfect place to grab a snack and craft cocktail while planning your next stop.
Chances are, if you're coming to Denver, you're into the outdoors. Rocky Mountain national park is about 1.5 hours from Denver and worth the trip. Leave early and take the entire day, you can easily spend a week in the park, but you can hit the high notes (elevation pun intended) in a day trip. Other easy day trips include Boulder, Breckenridge, Frisco, and Colorado Springs. No car? No problem, there are many day trip tours, shuttles and even some train routes that run daily to many surrounding areas. Catch a shuttle to Red Rocks to catch your favorite band playing in one of the best amphitheaters in the country. Whatever you are into, book your vacation rental now and explore all that Denver has to offer!

Getting around town? It's fairly easy to get around town driving yourself, and all of the typical transportation options exist including public bus, rideshare, and cabs. Local tip- during ski season, check out the train options to head up to Winter Park for a day of skiing.
