What more could you want?
With so much to see and do in this magnificent city, we would highly recommend renting a car as your first port of call. Driving is really the only way to experience everything Denver has to offer, and, with the city being such a great base for exploring further afield around Colorado, it will give you the opportunity to widen your horizons even more. Because of this, renting a car is a highly popular option, so there are plenty of agencies available for you to choose from. Do your research prior to your trip so that you can find the best company for you, based on location, vehicle types, and time.
You may want to skip the hassle of hiring a car at the airport and head straight to the city. This is no problem, as there is an abundance of car hire agencies in downtown Denver. If you are erring towards an international company with plenty of five-star reviews under their belt, we recommend checking out agencies such as Budget, Enterprise, and Avis. These companies all have plenty of experience, and will be able to provide you with everything you need to make the most of your visit to Colorado’s capital. However, it may be worth looking into some of the more local agencies available. Mile High Car Rental is a great example, proving incredibly popular with tourists and visitors to the city. They have the same level of fantastic customer service as their worldwide competitors, but by choosing them you have the additional benefit of supporting a local business.
Denver is an eclectic city full of the most beautiful sights you will ever see. Whether you’re driving through the urban streets or cruising along the open roads with the Rocky Mountains as your backdrop, you’ll be sure to have an amazing time behind the wheel. But, to ensure your time is happy and safe we recommend doing your research on the local laws prior to hiring a car, especially if you’re not used to driving in Colorado.
There is a truly huge selection of car rental agencies in Denver, so, although you definitely won’t struggle to find one, it may be a bit overwhelming trying to decide which one to choose. If this is the case for you, we recommend doing plenty of research prior to your visit. Compare car rental agencies using websites such as Kayak or Travel Supermarket to find out which ones have the best deals and vehicle options for your needs. Many will also have different options depending on when you book them too, so be prepared to spend some time going back to websites if you want to find the best deals possible. It is also worth noting that, if you’re planning to visit Denver in the winter, road conditions can be quite difficult, so check that your car rental agency has benefits in place to ensure your safety on the road when booking.
Known for being the ‘Gateway to the Rockies’, Denver has a landscape that is bursting with natural beauty. The city is the perfect starting place for a number of road trips that take you on a journey through this incredible scenery with National Parks, mountains, forests, and so much more to discover. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can even drive to Las Vegas along a route that shines with beautiful views around every turn.
For a truly iconic road trip, we recommend taking the six-hour route North of Denver to see the historic Mount Rushmore. Located in the Black Hills, these giant, carved faces of America’s most famous presidents are a once-in-a-lifetime sight. Or, for a shorter trip, head over the Rocky Mountains to Glenwood Springs, where, in approximately three hours, you will find the largest hot spring pool in the world.
