Top Tips For Visiting Denver
You’re A Mile High in Denver
Many visitors forget that this means the air is drier, thinner and takes time to acclimate being a mile high. Make sure you take time the first 24 hours or so, that you don’t get winded walking up a flight of stairs!
Go on A Hike
Being surrounded by mountains on one side and open plains on the other, Denver is ideally situated for outdoor activities. Hiking is a favourite pastime of the locals, and it’s little wonder that the city is known for its outdoorsy people.
