Denver Travel Tips

Health and Safety Tips for Cheese with Altitude Attendees

Denver, Colorado is known as The Mile High City because it sits 5,280 feet (one mile!) above sea level. While the majestic Rocky Mountains lie to its west, the city of Denver itself is quite flat, and sits in a semi-arid high mountain plain region, which means you’ll find hot, dry, thin air here. Summer daytime temperatures can top 90 degrees dropping into the 60s at night – often with powerful afternoon rainstorms in-between. Remember to pack accordingly, and to stock up on water, sunscreen, and lip balm!

Keep these High-Altitude Tips in mind.

From there, you can stroll down 16th street to your hotel, hop the free 16th Street Mall Ride shuttle bus, or even hail an Uber, Lyft, or pedicab!
