Denver Car Rentals
Adventures galore in Colorado
Denver is famous for its majestic mountains, delightful streams and all things nature-related. What a great place to take a family trip! Pick up a Denver rental car and head to the Rocky Mountains!
Rocky Mountain National Park
Drive your Denver rental car through this 415-square-mile park on Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous motorway in the U.S. For those looking for a more physical adventure, try:
- Horseback riding
- Wildlife viewing
Whether you choose to drive or ride horseback, you are likely to spot all sorts of Rocky Mountain animals like elk, sheep, mule deer and even moose. Bird watchers will enjoy the over 280 known bird species in the park, and there are butterflies galore! If you have only one day try a hike on the over 500 miles of trail.
Got more time? Bunk up in a tent at any designated camping spot and try trout fishing. Live bait is banned from the park's catch-and-release waters so keep your lures artificial, and keep in mind that only one hand-held rod or lure per person is allowed.
Kids can earn a Junior Ranger badge during the summertime by learning about how to help preserve and protect the beautiful Rocky Mountain wilderness in a 30-minute Ranger-led course. National Geographic named this park one of the best places to visit in the world in 2014. Gear up and come see why!
The Colorado Buffaloes call this stadium, located in nearby Boulder, home. Originally named Colorado Stadium, the facility was renamed after the death of Coach Fred Folsom, who led the team for 15 years with a 76.5 percent winning record, the highest of any University of Colorado Boulder coach yet.
Even the street outside, once called 24th St, was renamed after the beloved coach. The largest ever crowd was 54,972 for the Sept. 3, 2005, game versus Colorado State. Fans packed the stands to encourage their favorite team in the rivalry between the Rams and the Buffs.
Any spot in this stadium will allow brilliant views of the surrounding mountains. Facility managers made sure there's no such thing as a bad seat at this stadium when they removed the fourth row seating from several levels due to various things obstructing the view. Don your Silver and Gold and join the crowd cheering the Buffaloes on to victory!
Denver Museum of Nature and Science
It's hard to believe that this museum was started in a log cabin in 1900. Naturalist Edwin Carter had a deep love for the creatures and plants of the Rocky Mountains. His collection of specimens inspired others to contribute, leading to funding and expansion.
Take in a documentary film at the IMAX Theater, go star-gazing in the planetarium, and wander the many scientific and hands-on exhibits to learn about everything from animals and plants to evolution. There is even a chance you can meet some live animals! Check the schedule to see what exciting events are happening when you want to visit.
