5 Unbelievable Things You Didn’t Realize You Could Do At The Denver Airport
Is it just me or does going to the airport become less magical and more dreadful the older we get? What was once an exciting experience as a child has become nothing but a headache with crappy airlines, long TSA lines, and overpriced bottles of water… but what if I told you that it doesn’t have to be this way? Take, for instance, these 5 unbelievable things you didn’t realize you could do at DIA:
1.) Kill time by scoping out all the murals
Named the "Best U.S. Airport for Art" in USA Today’s "10 Best Reader’s Choice," DIA is home to a HUGE collection of murals, sculptures, and museum-quality exhibits that are guaranteed to stimulate both your mind and interesting conversation. (See: DIA conspiracy theories regarding the pictured mural.)
2.) Dine at one of the airport's world-class restaurants
Did you know that Denver Airport was recently recognized for having the
best airport food in the country
? Let's celebrate this by wining and dining at the delicious CRÚ Food and Wine Bar (pictured), Root Down, or Wine Down. Not a fan of wine? No problem, because...
3.) Pub crawl through your terminal
...there is no shortage of breweries to go around at DIA! Get a flight (or two -- we won't judge) before your flight at Boulder Beer Tap House, Denver ChopHouse, and the Coors Silver Bullet Bar.
4.) De-stress with CATS
Yes, I know this isn't a picture of an actual cat, because in this case, CATS in an acronym for the Canine Airport Therapy Squad, whose job it is to walk around the airport in an attempt to alleviate traveler's stress and anxiety.
5.) Check in your pet at the airport's exclusive pet resort
Massages, flat-screen TVs, a giant pool... no, I'm not talking about YOUR vacation; I'm talking about what Fido has to look forward to at DIA's premiere Paradise 4 Paws; the "only on-airport pet boarding facility, featuring more than 25,000 square feet of space dedicated to 24-hour service that includes day and overnight pet stays."
