Denver seeks new non-stops

Denver, Colorado’s “Mile High City”, has set it sights on even loftier ambitions, with strong suggestions during its hosting of the recent IPW trade show of new non-stop flights from Australasia. There’s no doubt such a route would be a success — certainly on a seasonal basis — with Denver providing the gateway to some of the world’s best ski resorts in the Rocky Mountains including Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain and more. While the new flights are the subject of conjecture at this stage, what is concrete is the burgeoning tourist offering in Denver which is an extremely convenient, walkable destination with plenty of public transport.

Such is the growing popularity of Denver for tourists that CityPASS has added the city as its newest destination. The new Denver CityPASS C3/C4/C5 ticket is a mobile ticketing concept allowing users to select any three, four or five attractions from a choice of eight such as the Denver Zoo, Denver Art Museum, Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum and the Downtown Aquarium Denver.

Another great way to see the city is to take a motor scooter tour. Scootours Denver offers rentals of low-powered scooters or mopeds, as well as guided tours each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Visitors don’t need a motorbike licence to participate, with full training provided before you hit the road. You need to have a valid driver’s licence, be over 18 and able to ride a bicycle, and there is nothing quite like the freedom of zooming around the city on a scooter — see
