Denver Car Rentals
Denver, Colorado has a lot to offer between its beautiful natural areas and exciting man-made attractions. Cheer for the Broncos and enjoy sweeping views of the city and surrounding area at these great places:
Sports Authority Field at Mile High
The Denver Broncos National Football League team calls this horseshoe-shaped stadium home at 1701 Bryant Street. Catch a game and join in on the legendary Rocky Mountain thunder. This noise is made when fans stomp on the 13,500 tons of steel treads and risers used to make the seating bowl. The unique shape of the stadium intensifies the sound so it echoes for all to hear. Be sure to bring your camera to capture a shot of your family with Bucky, the 27-foot-tall statue of a bucking bronco. He has been standing since 1975 and weighs 1,600 pounds! Visit the stadiums south end where the Ring of Fame Plaza honors famous Broncos teammates and staffers who have made the team what it is today. The steel used to make the individual hall monuments is from the original Mile High Stadium, where the Broncos played 50 years’ worth of home games. You'll love the excitement in the atmosphere at this Denver stadium.
Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater
This scenic natural area opened in June 1941. The open-air amphitheater seats 9,525 people and the park covers a total of 640 acres. The red rocks offer a glimpse into prehistoric history with fossil fragments from a giant 40-foot plesiosaur and other interesting prehistoric creatures. The theater also offers a beautiful view of Denver. Events here range from fitness classes to major concerts. Earth, Wind & Fire, Brandi Carlile, The National, Keith Urban, Kid Kudi, John Mayer and many other famous bands and musicians have played here. The 30,000-square-foot visitor’s center houses a restaurant, the Performers Hall of Fame and event spaces for weddings and meetings. Stop by the trading post to grab a Red Rocks shirt or mug and check out some unique souvenirs, or grab a bight to eat at the Ship Rock Grille. You'll enjoy the gourmet food with a seriously gorgeous view.
Visit the 4,000 animals at the Denver Zoo, but we don't recommend trying to see them all in one day, this facility covers 75 acres! The first resident was a black bear, and today you can see all sorts of creatures, from green tree pythons to lions, hyenas, monkeys and plenty more. The zoo is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Last entry is at 4 p.m. Visit the zoo website to see when the animals are being fed and try to arrive at that time to see your favorite residents in a feeding frenzy. Some of them are hand-fed, like the penguins, and others get a healthy trough full of veggies and other goodies. Head to the Wild Encounters Amphitheater at noon to touch a snake or an alligator and get up close to a prairie dog.
