Also known as the Mile High City, Denver, Colorado is one of the sunniest cities in the United States. Its surrounding mountains are full of gorgeous nature spots, hikes and views that are to die for, and the city itself is one of the largest urban areas in the region. Denver is a firm favourite among sports fans, with plenty of teams and stadiums to visit, not to mention a number of winter sport resorts in the area.
Lots of hostels in Denver are centrally located, which is ideal if you don’t want to spend too much time on public transport. Want to stay in a 9,000 square foot mansion with a huge hot tub and quirky retro décor? Yep, on a backpacker’s budget! Or perhaps you’d rather hang out downtown? No worries, that’s where you’ll find one of our top-rated hostels that’s above an iconic Denver music venue and offers insane nightly happy hours that include free drinks for guests!
If you want to make the most of Denver’s vibrant nightlife, choose to stay in downtown, where options range from quirky bars to flashy nightclubs and even local music venues. The Capitol Hill neighbourhood is wonderfully bohemian, with colourful stately mansions, vintage shops, coffee houses and a hippy attitude. If you’re more of the outdoorsy type then you’ll love the area surrounding City Park, the perfect spot for a bit of nature watching inside the busy city.
Denver is a great city for outdoor sports, including hiking, mountain biking, skiing and sledding. On a sunny day, the glorious Denver Botanical Gardens are not to be missed. Looking for some indoor activities? Denver also boasts captivating museums, such as the Denver Art Museum, Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art and the Museum of Nature and Science to name just a few.
It’s easy to get by without a car in Denver as most of the city’s attractions are close to each other. For longer distances, the light rail is an option. If you wish to travel outside the city, for instance to the Rocky Mountains, renting a car is the most convenient option.
