Not much. You'll have to take a train (RTD A line) to downtown (Union Station). It is about a 40 minute trip with trains at intervals of 15 or 30 minutes depending on the time of day. Plus, it takes some time to get from your gate to the train station (there is an underground people mover). On the return, you'll have to allow time to go through security, ...

It looks like the retail marijuana outlet closest to the Denver airport is Timberline Herbal Clinic and Wellness Center. That looks to be a ~30 minute drive each way, or more like 90 minutes to 2 hours by mass transit. You might be able to arrange a ride with Supershuttle. But at best you're going to be cutting things close with a 4 1/2 hour layover. If you ...

You've identified most of the standard options. Almost all travel between Denver and Fort Collins is by private car (as is almost all travel in general in the U.S., outside of a handful of corridors between large cities), and relatively few people are expected to take Amtrak to Denver in order to get to Fort Collins, so the schedules are not coordinated. ...

Since April 2016, the RTD A Line is now in operation. This is a direct rail line from Denver International Airport to downtown Denver (Union Station). The airport rail station is at the south end of the main terminal. There are trains every 15 minutes most of the day, going to every 30 minutes after 6:30pm and early mornings. There are departures from ...

http://www3.rtd-denver.com/schedules/getRouteList.action?routeType=9 The link above has schedules for buses departing from DEN airport into the city. Depending on where you want to go, click on the bus route for timing information (if you want to go to Market street, you probably want bus AS, then transfer at Stapleton to bus 38). For more route information,...

Based on your criteria, the I-70 to US-6 route appears to be superior. This route has T-Mobile 3G coverage along most of its route, whereas I-80 has little or no data coverage west of Cheyenne. This route is slightly shorter, though the difference in distance is trivial. As both routes travel through mountain passes, fuel usage should be similar between ...

Both ways would probably be fine during October. Major snowfall can happen in October, but it's rare for it to close the highway for long. Your entire drive will be around 12 hours (I'm adding plenty of extra time since you're in an RV towing a car and you'll be driving alone). You say that you have a few days to do this trip in, so I would just decide ...

The terminal at DEN has a very simple layout. It's a single large rectangular building with 6 levels, 1 being the lowest and 6 being the highest, with roads passing along the east and west sides on levels 4, 5, and 6. The building is almost perfectly symmetrical from east to west. The domestic baggage claim carousels are on level 5, on the east and west ...

Here's some things to consider. Some people go I-80 to Laramie and down through Fort Collins into Denver. However, Fort Collins has developed and more stoplights will slow you down. Now some people elect to go to Cheyenne and then down I-25 but this adds some distance. Where you want to go/or traveling from in the Denver area is a big factor in your ...

Since April 2016, the RTD A Line is now in operation. This is a direct rail line from Denver International Airport to downtown Denver (Union Station). See this answer for details. Union Station is right at the northwest end of the 16th Street Mall. There is a free MallRide shuttle bus running the length of the mall, if you want to get to a different ...

While Wikivoyage is a good place to check for info like this you can generally find good info on the relevant official airport website. At least I have been able to most times I've tried. So, here's Denver airports official page. Following the Ground Transportation / Public Transport links gets you to a page about the SkyRide public bus service. From there ...

As @Flimzy pointed out. Google Maps has pretty extensive public transportation information. So you can simply try to get the options from it. In addition you can look at RTD, which allows you to do the same thing but in the end uses Google Maps for rendering options.

For many years prior to March 2011, you could park for free on the streets in downtown Denver, from 22:00 until 02:00, but there was no street parking between 02:00 and 06:00 (supposedly for street sweeping). Almost every single web-resource you find nowadays, two years later (April/May 2013), still insists that parking between 22:00 and 02:00 is free, but ...

This doesn't exactly answer the question posed, due to its schedule, but could be useful for other people traveling between Denver's Union Station and Fort Collins. From July 2015, there is a public commuter bus service running between Denver and Fort Collins: Bustang North Line. It runs on weekdays from Denver's Union Station (which is where Amtrak stops) ...

Arrow / Black Hills Stages have an early bus, but it's unclear if it only stops in Greeley or also in Ft. Collins. Greyhound lists this bus as departing from Ft. Collins (5:45am) but Arrow / Black Hills lists it only from Greeley. You may want to call them to confirm. This bus is scheduled to arrive Denver Greyhound station at 6:40am. It's a 12 minute walk ...

The Twentieth Street Recreation Center is about nine blocks away from Union Station at 1011 20th Street (20th and Curtis). It is classified as a "local" rec center; the fee varies by age, but it's no more than $5.50 at present. As far as I can tell, you are not required to be a resident of the city or county of Denver to use the centers, though only ...

Turns out AirBnb has a list of amenities, including pools spas and hot tubs, which can be used to filter out properties. I would use this as a starting point for your search. Here is a random property mentioning a hot tub in Colorado Springs. In my opinion you will find more hot tubs in private properties in Colorado Springs. Denver will probably offer ...

If you're going on a weekday (Monday through Friday and not a holiday), you could take the Bustang North Line commuter bus service. See my answer on Getting from Denver Amtrak to Fort Collins for details. For instance, there is a bus leaving downtown Fort Collins at 5:40 AM and arriving at Union Station at 7:05 AM. You can also catch it at I-25 and ...
