* Some of our favorites. I provide much more info in a pamphlet inside the cottage (where to get gas, groceries, medical care, etc) as well as an official guide to Denver/Colorado.
Harvard Gulch Park is only 6 blocks east. The Recreation Center there includes weight/exercise room (treadmills, stationary bikes, circuit training, free weights), outdoor pool, full size basketball court, and various exercise classes. Day pass can be purchased for $5.50. Technically this is for Denver residents' use so you would not be able to get a monthly pass.
City of Kunming Park (at Vassar & Grant) is a park on a hill that allows you to see the mountains and downtown Denver. A great place for a picnic.
Light Rail: Just 4 blocks away, just north of intersection of Warren & Delaware. Get on northbound train to go downtown. (about 15-20 min ride)
City Bus: Closest northbound bus stop is 1/2 block away on NE corner of Broadway & Iliff. Closest southbound bus stop is on SW corner of Broadway & Iliff, a bit south of Mike's Bar.
Denver is a bike friendly city with many bike lanes and trails. There's also a bike rental/share program called Denver B-cycles, which has many kiosks around the city where you can pick up these bikes. (Closest kiosk is at Florida & South Pearl - 1.3 miles away)
If you rent a car, you can park in on the street in the front of the property or in the alley (off street)
HOW TO GET HERE FROM THE AIRPORT (if you're not renting a car):
The best way to get here is to use Super Shuttle: (website: hidden) The cost from the airport to our house is $26 for first person and $12 for any others. You will be in the van with other people and they drop people off as they go. If you're the last people dropped off, then it could take an hour and half+ to get here --- longer if it's rush hour. (It's about a 45-60 min drive anyway with no stops, if there's no traffic)
A taxi is faster but more expensive. It'd be around $75+ to get to our house. (website: hidden) will take you downtown for around $55 but then you'd have to get a cab from downtown to our house (about 7 miles away).
The other big taxi company is (website: hidden) They say same amount for downtown. They say $65 for Cherry Creek. We're about 5 miles from there.
The cheapest way to get here would be by bus and then light rail, if you're traveling light. However, you'd have to time everything just right or you might find yourself waiting around for next bus or next light rail. Skyride bus schedule: (website: hidden) It costs $11 to go to the downtown bus station. Then you'd go to the Union Station light rail station and catch the C line light rail train going south and get off at the Evans station. We are 4 blocks from there. 2nd option costs $9 -- you'd take the bus to the Nine Mile light rail station, and then take the H line train to the Louisiana-Pearl station. We are a short distance from there. I could pick you up at either station or downtown, if we plan on that ahead of time. It costs around $2.50 to ride the light rail.
