From tranquil national parks to knuckle-whitening theme parks, book Denver car hire and get involved in the action...
Denver is the largest and most populous city in the state of Colorado. Located about 15 miles from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the national parks and other areas of natural beauty are best explored by making use of car hire in Denver.
Denver has an abundance of museums - ranging from Denver's history during the Gold Rush to celebrating local heroes, such as the grave of Buffalo Bill and the homes of Titanic survivor Molly Brown. Many of these are located outside of the city limits, making car rental an essential part of your visit to the city.
Denver itself is home to many attractions, although the sheer size of the city means that Denver car rental will be essential if you want to access everything easily.
The sleek-looking Denver Art Museum is one of the first ports of call for most visitors and is home to impressive collections of pre-Impressionist and Impressionist art. Not too far away, you’ll also find the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. On the other side of town, nature lovers will be in for a treat at Denver Zoo – home to about 4,000 animals.
Cheap car hire in Denver can be found when you pre-book your vehicle online after comparing the best prices on TravelSupermarket. You can pick up your vehicle at Denver International Airport or from one of several downtown locations.
You’ve seen the city, now head out to explore the stunning Colorado countryside that surrounds it...
Outside of the city there is an abundance of national parks, including the Rocky Mountain National Park. About an hour and a half's drive from Denver city centre, it gives you the chance to walk on the wild side and partake in hiking, fishing and camping excursions.
Many of the smaller parks and attractions - such as replica villages from the time of the Gold Rush - are about a 30-minute drive from Denver, so car hire is the best way to ensure you see all that's on offer.
In Morrison, which is 15 miles west of Denver, you’ll find the stunning Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre. It’s a natural arena with superb acoustics, but also a great base for the start of walks and nature trails. Entry is free (except on concert days).
Sports fans will no doubt be drawn to Coors Field Stadium, where the Colorado Rockies baseball team plays home games. It’s only a short drive from the city centre, as is the State Capitol Building, which has fascinating tours.
Shopaholics won’t be disappointed either. Less than a mile’s drive from the State Capitol Building you’ll find the 16th Street Mall – one of the most exciting shopping experiences in this part of the USA. By car, all three can be done in a day, and you’ll be glad you booked car hire in Denver.
