Known as the “Mile High City,” Denver, Colorado is a former Gold Rush boomtown turned vibrant U.S. metropolis, shielded to the west by the scenic Rocky Mountain range. Denver is easy to reach from just about anywhere, thanks to its major international airport and position just 340 miles from the geographic center of the United States.
It’s also a surprisingly affordable city for a metropolitan area of its size, with numerous affordable Airbnbs in Denver under $110 a night to choose from.
With a vibrant food and craft beer scene, seven professional sports teams, and countless historic districts to wander by foot, Denver is a perfect location for a fun and affordable weekend getaway with friends or family.
