Denver, Colorado in winter

Denver takes great pride in its public transportation options. The A Line from the airport goes to Denver Union Station in the heart of downtown for only $10.00. Plus, there are all sorts of light rail and bus routes, shuttles, cabs and the free 16th Street MallRide. Denver is also incredibly walkable with tons of sightseeing.

All aboard the Amtrak Winter Park Express — your ticket between Denver and the foot of the slopes at the Winter Park Resort, voted North America’s best ski resort and Colorado’s top adventure town. See information about daily drains from Union Station to the Winter Park.

Winter Park is the closest major mountain destination to Denver at just 67 miles away. With easy access to 765,000 acres of public land, Winter Park is home to endless adventures and an unparalleled and unfiltered Colorado experience.

Denver serves as an excellent gateway to the wonders of the nearby Rocky Mountains. Check out a handful of must-see attractions, gorgeous drives and mountain town adventures, all within two hours of The Mile High City.

Beyond the big-ticket attractions, Denver is home to a wide array of fascinating smaller attractions like the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, Museo de las Americas and Rockmount Ranch Wear that make for unforgettable experiences.
