See a live show at the amphitheatre during your Denver girls' trip if you can. There's also Film on the Rocks and Yoga on the Rocks during summer.

The best way to get around Denver is by car. You can rent a car if you're flying in for your girls' weekend in Denver. You can also use rideshare services like Lyft or Uber.
Many areas in Denver are walkable once you’re there. For example, if you want to hang out in RiNo, you can drive and park, then walk around.
We find it easiest to stay somewhere you can walk to some places, then get rideshare to busy areas like LoDo and RiNo.
Scooter and bike rentals are also available throughout the city.
Your Denver girls' weekend will cost $100+ per day for accommodations, food, and activities. Costs vary depending on your accommodations and activities.
