Things To See and Do While You’re In Denver, Colorado

Welcome to Denver! New in town? Or just visiting? Here are some must see’s and must do’s while you’re in the mile-high city!

In the summer, when the sun is beating down on Denver, many of us (or at least the thrill seekers) like to visit Downtown’s Elitch Gardens for roller coasters and fun! For a more family oriented day, try Lakeside Amusement Park or get wet and wild at Water World: Denver’s 64-acre water park just 10 miles north of downtown Denver.

Looking for a low-key, casual day? You’re in luck because Denver is home to many museums, historic attractions, parks and gardens including the Denver Art Museum, Museo de las Americas, Buffalo Bill’s final resting place, and History Colorado Center.

Getting Around Denver

Denver is not a small city. In fact, it’s just about 150 square miles. Cab fares or tour buses can eat up your entire day and wallet. We like making our own agenda by utilizing a rental car, especially when it’s a more than affordable option!

Here are just a few reasons why Denver visitors choose car rentals from Car Rental 8:

  • Unlimited Mileage
  • Major Brand Suppliers
  • Airport Pickup at Denver International
  • GPS Options
  • Lowest Rates Around
  • 8 Protect Package (Avoid Cancellation Fees – Only Available at Car Rental 8)

Drive On! Just 20-30 Minutes Outside of the City …

Up for a real adventure? White water rafting is on many people’s bucket list – visit Denver and you can cross that one off your list! If you have a rental car you certainly won’t have to worry about getting there.

And, let’s not forget that Colorado is home to many world-class ski resorts that are within reasonable driving distance from the city. Make a day trip or weekend out of Loveland Ski Area, Keystone and Breckenridge, Cooper Mountain and Winter Park.
