The Mile High City may have more than one meaning, but referring to your budget doesn’t have to be one of them. While Denver, Colorado, gains a bit more of the respect it so clearly deserves each year as a trendy, must-visit city, the tourism industry is just getting started — leaving plenty of unspoiled destinations for budget-seeking travelers.
Whether you’re in the city for work, play or both, there are many ways to save money and still enjoy.
The city may be large and spread out, but if you plan it right, you can easily walk and bike the majority of it. Get some exercise while seeing the city and rent a Denver B-cycle to get around for $9 a day or opt for the dock-less electric scooters for less. Skip taxis and rideshares, and use public transportation instead. Public transportation options include the Denver Light Rail for $3–9, or hop on the free bus traveling up and down 16th Street Mall.
Save your pennies for the city’s incredible nightlife with cheap eats by day. Choosing a place to eat should be easy as Denver is literally loaded with dining locales. Affordable and authentic eateries include Illegal Pete’s offering hearty options $7–14; El Taco de Mexico selling tacos for $1 each; and historic Sam’s No. 3 (also featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives) holding down the fort as an American eatery and diner, selling all meals of the day for $9–16.
Illegal Pete’s, like so many establishments, also doubles as a live music venue, so check out the calendar before your visit.
Do you like fireworks? If you do, then you may have to check out Germany’s ultimate celebration of pyro-technics. European countries are known for their love of fireworks on New Year’s Eve, or any anniversary celebration, in fact. Fireworks are more accepted as a casual pastime in Europe than they are in the United States. That said, there is nothing like the unbridled celebration that is the Berlin Pyronale.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
Durango, Colorado, is a hotbed of outdoor adventures, bringing in travelers from all over the world to experience its abundance of adrenaline-fueled activities. Whether you’re a fan of hiking or biking, there’s something to keep you busy in this exciting little town.
The Spanish region of Galicia sets itself apart for many reasons, like its vistas of the Atlantic from its perch in northwestern Spain right above Portugal. Its cliffs of Cape Finisterre are the end of the world or were thought to be by the Romans. The Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail runs through this region, as well. The landscape is beyond comparison as is the food.
