Downtown Denver is a walkable, pedestrian area, best seen on foot. Free shuttle buses travel up and down the mile long 16th Street Mall, stopping on every corner as often as every 90 seconds. Light Rail offers connections to the Denver Tech Center and Platte River Valley.

Visitor Information/Brochures/Maps

Upon arrival at Denver International Airport, visitor information can be obtained at the DMCVB’s Visitor Information Center located in the Main Terminal Building, 5th Floor. The Visitor Information Center is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week. Guides, maps, and brochures are available 24 hours a day.

High Altitude Tips

Don’t let anything you hear about the mile-high altitude scare you. The air is just thinner and dryer. In fact, many people with respiratory problems, including the mayor, move to Denver for the benefits of the dry air. Just follow these simple tips and you will very likely not even notice the difference.

  • Drink water both before your trip to Denver, and while you are here. Drinking plenty of water is the number one way to help your body adjust easily to our higher altitude. The low humidity in Colorado keeps the air dry, like the desert, so you need about twice as much water here as you would drink at home. It is also recommended that you go easy on the alcohol in the mountains and in Denver, as its effects will feel stronger here. The effects of exercise are more intense here as well. If you normally run 10 miles a day at home, you might try 6 miles in Denver.

  • Eat foods high in potassium such as broccoli, bananas, avocado, cantaloupe, celery, greens, bran, chocolate, granola, dates, dried fruit, potatoes, tomatoes.

  • What to bring: Denver receives over 300 days of sunshine each year (more than San Diego or Miami). Bring sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm… even in winter. There is 25% less protection from the sun’s rays at Denver’s 5,280 feet elevation.

  • Weather: Two days before your trip to Denver, check into the latest weather and temperature. Please use this information to pack appropriately. Because Denver is closer to the sun, it can feel much warmer than the actual temperature during the daytime, but then become very chilly after sundown, particularly in the spring and fall. It is best to layer your clothing. Springtime visitors to Denver and Colorado will find balmy, sunny days with cool evenings. With the Denver weather being so comfortable, medium-weight clothing such as a comfortable pantsuit for women or a lightweight jacket for men will be most appropriate. Ties for men are seldom necessary except for business occasions or in the more formal restaurants. Denver weather is usually mild and dry.
