Getting to and from the Denver International Airport

The Denver International Airport is located about 35 miles from the city's downtown by car, shuttle bus, taxi, or public transportation. Avoid hiring a taxi, as rates in this city are quite high and other great options exist. Additionally, most of Denver's major hotels offer a complimentary airport shuttle to help you begin your vacation just after touchdown.

If you are looking to enjoy more of Denver's exciting naturescapes, think car rental. Nationally recognized rental companies, including Advantage, Alamo, Avis, Budget, and more, are located at the airport's Jeppesen Terminal. At this same terminal you can also opt to hop on the city's bus system with direct connections into the downtown. Denver's downtown and major suburbs are also serviced by an excellent interconnected and easily navigable train system.

Snow or Arts? When to Visit Denver

The best time to visit Denver depends entirely on your style. If you love festivals, music, beer, and the arts, visit Denver in the summer months between June and September. This is when the city's most popular events, such as the Cherry Creek Arts Festival and A Taste of Colorado, are in full swing. If, however, you're more into the possibilities the nearby Rocky Mountain slopes offer, the winter months between November and March may be your ideal time. This is when frequent snow storms provide the perfect setup for skiers and snowboarders.
