Climate

Things to See and Do

There is a lot to see and do in Denver with regards to museums and architecture.  Of course, there are also many parks and gardens, as well as all American amusement parks, making it a great place to visit with the family.  Festivals take place all year round, so no matter when you go to Denver, you are sure to be able to be present for at least one festival.  There are also plenty of educational activities to take part in, as well as sports of course.

Getting Around

Denver really is a driving city.  It seems that public transport cannot grow as fast as what the metropolitan area is growing and hence has many teething problems.  Hence, if you are planning a visit, you may want to consider car hire Denver.  This will allow you to come and go as you please whilst using the best infrastructure the city has to offer – the roads.  The anycarhire.com website can help you to compare the prices of rental companies and book online.
