Things to Do in Denver
You'll find spectacular dining options in downtown Denver, as well as the suburbs of Aurora and Littleton. One of the hottest new joints perfect for a business meeting is Element Kitchen, which has tons of shareable plates and excellent drinks. In Littleton, venture to the Damascus Grill for a taste of the Mediterranean, or go to the Bent Fork American Grill in Aurora for delectable twists on classic American food. Aurora is just minutes away from the airport and downtown Denver, while Littleton is a 30-mile hike.
If you're in town for a few days, and you need to get a run or a workout into your routine, head to Denver's City Park. This beautiful urban park offers miles of trails with panoramic views of the city, and if you're in the mood, swing by the Denver Zoo within the park, which is also one of the city's top attractions.
Traffic and Parking Information
Despite a vast, interconnected set of roadways throughout the city, Denver still suffers from extreme congestion. The only difference is that it's throughout the day, and not necessarily confined to rush hour. If you need to go from east to west or south, E-470 allows you to do it quickly, albeit with a toll. Otherwise, you're at the mercy of other motorists.
Most parking in Denver is on-street and metered. Parking meters take debit card, credit card, and cash at your convenience.
The Colorado Convention Center is the largest facility of its kind in the state, boasting over 2.2 million square feet of space, 63 meeting rooms, and a capacity to serve up to 20,000 attendees. All the catering is in-house, but with capabilities to serve all 20,000 people who attend. With over 8,700 hotel rooms, 300 restaurants, and nine theaters within walking distance, the convention center and surrounding area makes for a convenient and stress-free business trip.
