Denver

30 Sep

3_REI_Denver_Skyline_MastheadWe are headed to Denver, Colorado this week! We’re excited about the trip and about our plans to rely on our legs and mass transit to get us around the city. The days we spend in the mountains we will rely on a rental car. No one’s perfect.


We found a great little vacation rental in the LoHi (Lower Highland) neighborhood which puts us near the hub of things downtown – and the REI flagship store. I am as excited about that as most women are about Nordstrom’s or an outlet mall. Maybe more – I’m really excited!18

For most of our transportation needs we’ll utilize Denver’s bike share program, Denver B-cycle. There is a B-station about .5 mile from our place and in total there are 53 stations with 530 bikes for use around the metro.

B-cycleThis will be my first opportunity to utilize a bike share in a city, Oklahoma City has Spokies, but regrettably I haven’t used it yet. What a great resource for cities to offer, for us the tourist or visitor, but for the city as well by reducing traffic congestion, need for parking, etc. A win – win for sure.

I hope to post about our adventure during the week so check back!
