“Nick gave me a great welcome, with lots of useful info about the place and the neighborhood. It was a very clean and comfortable apartment with nice touches like coffee and toiletries. Very convenient to the south Broadway action.”

“My sister and I stayed here for two nights. We spent some time in the city but mostly wanted to hike outside the city. This was the perfect spot for both. We like walking so we walked downtown from this location. Parking was also easy and Anna responded immediately to any messages. The space was clean, safe, and comfortable. I would stay here again!”

“We had an amazing stay! The hosts were very helpful and kind. They were never in the way, and were very easy to talk to. The puppies are very cute, and the cats are so kind. The space was very clean, and it's so close to downtown, an Uber is only 9$ (versus 25$ for parking downtown). They gave us any information we needed, and are really cool people. We are very glad we stayed here.”

Get advice about the city from the people who know it best. Local hosts share their tips and recommendations for travelers like you.

What should I pack?

Layers! Welcome to colorado, where we can have 40+ degree shifts throughout the day and we can go from sun, to rain, to sun, to lightening, to snow....all in the same day! bring layers that you can easily put on and take off throughout the day.

Steven And Rose

Bring sunglasses and a water bottle The sun is bright and the altitude will get you (especially in the mountains), so drink lots of water.

What's the best way to get around?

If you are here for skiing, check goi70.com for traffic info If skiing on a weekend, in general, leave before 7am to avoid the worst traffic on i-70, and leave the resort before 2 or after 5 (get dinner). weekdays are much better. make sure to have or rent a car with 4 wheel drive or at least good snow tires!

Local transit The local lightrail station is at 10th and osage. very convenient for getting around the region. there is also a b-cycle station right outside the building. i use it all the time, but pay attention to rates. can get expensive

What should I not miss?

Altitudes effect on alcohol There are lower oxygen levels at higher altitudes, which can impair the ability to metabolize alcohol, leading to quicker absorption and enhanced intoxication (in layman's terms, you may get drunk faster and have worse hangovers). drink lots of water!

Steven And Rose
Steven And RoseLives in Denver

Drink lots of water! You are in the high desert and at high elevation. drink lots of water (more than you normally would closer to sea level). if you start getting headaches, nausea, or dizziness, it could be due to the altitude.....take a break, sit down, and drink lots of water.

Steven And Rose
Steven And RoseLives in Denver

What are some local customs?

Drink extra water to avoid altitude sickness Being a mile above sea level means that you need to drink extra water to stay hydrated and feeling well!

All about Denver

Ready for some altitude? Denver sits approximately one mile above sea level, which is how it got its “Mile High City” nickname. There are a number of ski resorts about an hour outside city limits, but it’s not just a winter city. Year-round, visitors of all ages flock to attractions like the zoo and the aquarium, while adults spark community in coffee shops, bars, and nightlife spots. A wide array of casual to fine restaurants provide American comfort food, craft beer, and cocktail options for gastronomic travelers. The city has many distinctive architectural styles that are fun to stay in, including charming bungalows, Victorian mansions, and playful mid-century modern homes.

Getting there

Fly into Denver International Airport (DEN) and you can hop on a rail service operated by the Regional Transportation District (RTD) that goes to Union Station downtown. Taxis and rideshares are also an option. The ride to downtown is about 25 miles and typically takes about 45 minutes at non-peak hours. It’s wise to plan for additional delays during the evening rush hour.

Weather

Cold, snowy, and dry winters can bring up to 60 inches of snow yearly, which makes Denvera skiers’ and snowboarders’ paradise. The hot summer season is the time to visit for warmer outdoor pursuits, such as hiking and mountain biking. Aside from the occasional spikes that bring a heat wave or deep freeze, it’s pretty temperate and approachable for visitors year-round.
