Denver Car Rentals
Finding great rental cars in Denver is simple!
Welcome to Denver, a city that sees more than 300 days of sunshine per year and one of the small handful of cities throughout America's history that did not become developed due to a nearby body of water or a large road or railway. Instead, Denver rose up out of the dust at the spot where specks of gold were spotted in 1858. Often referred to as "The Mile High City" because it sits at an altitude of 5,280 feet above the sea, Denver's mild climate makes it a great spot for your family to visit year round. Rent a car in Denver and take your family into the Rocky Mountains, dive into this city's rich history or pay a visit to the local man-eating komodo dragons.
Take a day to drive into the sky
Take your family on a day drive in your Denver rental car up Mount Evans Scenic Byway, starting only 60 miles west of downtown Denver. This is America's highest paved road and will take your family on a nearly 9,000 foot climb and through five different climate zones to the 14,264 feet summit of Mount Evans. When you and your family reach the top, get out and stretch your legs and take in the expansive and awe-inspiring views of the rolling Rocky Mountains. Now ... it's time to begin your descent back to the city below.
Discover over 700 species
Upon your descent, take your family on a much closer daytrip to the Denver Zoo, just a five minute drive from downtown in your Denver car rental. More than 4,000 animals that represent 700 unique species call these 80 acres their home and your children can spend hours here visiting with each one of them. Take them into the Tropical Discovery part of the zoo, which is famous for hosting a sprawling indoor rainforest, marine and freshwater aquariums and the largest exhibit of the man-eating komodo dragons in the entire world.
There's money in the hills!
What better place to learn about money than the city that sprung from gold? Drive your Denver rental car over to the United States Mint and take your family on a free tour. Because tour space is limited and fills up fast, it's best to plan ahead and book your tour a few weeks ahead of time. These fascinating tours are perfect for the whole family to explore the past and present of U.S. coin making, and you will learn about all stages of the minting process from early design to the striking of coins.
