Cheap Flights to Denver

Denver overview

Colorado's capital might be best known for its ski resorts and breathtaking scenery, but visitors will discover just how much more the city has to offer.

The Mile High City - at 1,600 metres officially - gets 300 days of sunshine a year, more than Miami. It embraces its cowboy past - William F. Cody (Buffalo Bill) is buried just 30 minutes from the city after all - its mining heritage and its great outdoors, but is a bang-up-to-date cosmopolitan arts and cultural city too.

Its Daniel Libeskind-designed Denver Art Museum is home to collections of African, American Indian, European and American, and Modern art, while the Museum of Contemporary Art focuses on art created since 1945.

Lower Downtown, LoDo to the locals, is a lively, historic district with bars, restaurants, microbreweries and book shops.

The Rocky Mountains offer a majestic backdrop, nature's playground for those taking cheap flights to Denver for the camping, hiking, bicycling, fishing and, of course, the skiing, in the ten national parks or 11 national forests on the city's doorstep.

Denver climate

Despite Denver's reputation as a ski paradise, the city does not have very harsh winters. Denver nestles in the foothills of the Rockies, on the high plains. The Chinook winds warm up the city to average temperatures that are well above other cities on the same latitude. Travellers considering taking cheap flights to Denver might be surprised to learn that Denver gets more sunshine each year than Miami or San Diego. Temperatures do not soar to the 100 degree mark, instead Denver enjoys a warm climate with low levels of humidity year round.

Getting around Denver

You can walk around downtown Denver easily or take public transportation. The 16th Street Mall has a free bus service running down the length of it. It stops every two blocks. To get around Denver, its suburbs and outlying communities, like Boulder and Evergreen, you can take the Regional Transportation District (RTD). It offers bus and light-rail services and has free transfer tickets, but you’ll need exact change. A great way to sightsee is hopping on the open-air Platte Valley Trolley, which has half-hour tours on its “Denver Sightseeing Route” in the warmer months. If you’re heading out of town for the day, you’ll need to rent a car. Be mindful of driving conditions during winter; storms can make driving treacherous.
