When you head to Denver from Detroit, you'll find yourself in the capital city of Colorado. You don't even have to leave Denver International Airport (DEN) to find a lovely atmosphere, as the airport conveniently houses a large collection of fine art. A rental car is your easiest option for travelling the city, and can be hired at the airport. After, head into the city via Interstate 70, toward the Rocky Mountain Range. Denver's vibrant downtown is only about 35 minutes from the airport.
With I-70 nearby centrally located in the city, and plenty of transportation options available throughout greater Denver, finding your way into the city won't be difficult. Denver is renowned for its museums, art scene and family-friendly activities.
If you're a wildlife enthusiast, you won't want to miss Denver Zoo, which houses more than 4,000 species of animals. The Denver Aquarium and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, which features a planetarium and an IMAX theater, are also worth a visit, and are ideal for entertaining the kids.
Once you take off from Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) you'll only be in the air about three hours before you land in Denver. Although it's known as the Mile-High City, Denver only has the third highest elevation among U.S. capital cities.
