Hvað á að taka með

Bring lots of layers!

Denver and the surrounding areas are known to have diverse weather types in a short amount of time. One day might be beautiful, sunny, and warm, the next you might wake up to cold temps and snow! If you're planning on going into the mountains, even for a summer hike or a quick jaunt, be prepared for the weather to change quickly. Always bring some kind of jacket or extra layer!

Getting around is easiest by car

The public transport in the Greater Denver area is not the best. To make the most of your trip, we recommend renting a car so that you can easily access all that the area has to offer!
