    Miracles do happen: public transportation exists to Grand Junction. There's an Amtrak train a few times a week and there's daily Greyhound connections too. I arrived by Greyhound from Las Vegas: I remember it took a long time - and it was a night-bus. The silhouette of canyons and rock formations I could sort of see (or sometimes imagine) outside the window kept me awake all night - it was like travelling through fairyland...

    Fly into Denver and it is roughly an hours drive from the airport to the nearby ski lodges. We drove from Tulsa, Oklahoma and it took roughly 10 hours, but we were poor college students at the time, and the drive wasn't too bad with the group of us.
    Definitely look into renting a car. Unless you are planning to stay in an all inclusive resort, a car comes in handy.

    Having a car is essential in Colorado. Even getting around Denver is difficult without a car as the public transportation is sparse.

    Getting to the mountains is difficult without a car, although you can take a train or fly to some mountain towns.

    From Denver's Union Station, take the Ski Train up to Winter Park. A great way to go to the mountains for the day if you don't want to drive.

    On Holiday, you can fly into the new Denver International Airport or DIA as it's known here, then rent a car or take a shuttle or a bus into the cities.
    In the states, the car is King. You can travel to any state any time as long as you can afford the gas. This also allows you to stop any time or place you'd like. A great tradition here is to go on extended road trips. Just get some friends, some good music and start driving-anywhere. It's that easy. Renting a car is the most efficient way to travel between cities.

  • Denver International...

    by ChiBronco Written Aug 24, 2002

    Denver International Airport(or DIA) is a Beautiful
    Airport but it is almost as close to Kansas as it is
    to Denver.There are hardly any Hotels out there as
    it was built out on the Flat Open Plains east of Denver.
    It's a Huge airport as well with lots of delays,especially
    in the summer with Denver getting Hail producing Storms
    almost every day!.Therefore I would basically recommend
    driving into Colorado if you're within 1,500 miles or so.
    By Car or maybe Tour Bus to see just about everything
    there is to see in the state.

    If you’re coming to Colorado from a long distance away flying into Denver or Colorado Springs is the best way to get here. You can then rent a car or take a shuttle bus to the Aspen area.
    .If you take a shuttle to the Aspen area from the airport you can get around by bus. There are buses that run everywhere and they are very reasonably priced. You can also rent a bike to use for transportation; Aspen is very biker friendly

    Go Around By Car

    by Stephisknitting Written Aug 19, 2005

    The landscape is amazing so getting around by car is far the best way. Take a map too.
    You then have your own choice where to go, how long to stay and what to do.

    Highway through the mountains

    Hwy 550 is referred to as the "Million Dollar Highway" and it passes directly though the mountains. This photo was taken north of that highway, along US 50, while looking back at the mountains.
