Things to do in Denver, CO

August 24, 2016

Every year for the past 4 years, my cousin’s and I have gotten together for an annual trip to connect and to spend an entire weekend together bonding. This year we all voted on Denver, CO. Since there’s a pretty good size group of us (9 + Parker), we all agreed to three components which includes a group tour, an outdoor activity and a brewery. We were able to check all the boxes in Denver.


Denver is a quick 2-2.5 hour direct flight from Houston

Accommodations- Hotel Monaco Denver

Transportation- Uber. About 30 miles from DEN airport to hotel ($30-$35)

Our hotel was centrally located in the Central Business District, so we were easily able to get around via walking or Uber. The best way to see a city is to book a bike tour. We found the Mile High Bike Tour online that covers a lot of the main spots. The tour itself took around 3 hours and was about 10 miles of mainly flat terrain biking. It was about a 10 minute walk from our hotel to the bike shop.

After your bike tour, make sure to stop by First Draft Brewery for a ‘pour your own’ beer experience and awesome food.

Overall, we had a great time in Denver! We really felt like we saved a lot of time by booking a bike tour and seeing all the sights in one day while also getting¬†in some exercise. Don’t forget to check out the many breweries that Denver has to offer. There are also walking tours dedicated to trying out multiple breweries.
