Under $100 / North America

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.

 

Getting Around

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.

 

Getting Fed

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.
