How many airports are there in Denver?
Six airports currently service the Denver metropolitan area, and depending upon how you plan on arriving here, all of these airports can accommodate furry passengers. Here’s a quick glimpse of each of these flight facilities:
- Denver International Airport (DEN): The largest airport in U.S. based on land area also has the longest public runway in the country. More than 54 million passengers pass through here each year, making DEN the nation’s sixth-busiest airport.
- Boulder Municipal Airport (BDU): Just northeast of downtown Boulder, this airport is a popular destination for enthusiasts of gliding and other recreational sports in unpowered aircraft.
- Centennial Airport (APA): Taking its name from the fact that Colorado entered the Union exactly 100 years after America’s founding, this three-runway airport has been in operation since 1967.
- Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (BJC): Equidistant from Denver and Boulder, this airport is technically the closest one to Denver’s business district and exists to support DEN in peak travel seasons.
- Front Range Airport (FTG): Located just a few miles southeast of DEN, this general aviation airport mostly services small, single-engine aircraft.
- Erie Municipal Airport (EIK): This once-private airport located in its namesake town has a single landing strip that largely handles single-engine planes and helicopters.
Is Mile High Stadium in downtown Denver?
Interested in seeing where the Broncos play? Sports Authority Field at Mile High, aka Mile High Stadium, doesn’t technically lie in Denver’s downtown area. Rather, the stadium sits about a mile and a half west of the central business district, past the neighborhood of Auraria on the other side of I-25. If you’d like to walk with your four-legged friend from one of the pet-friendly hotels in Denver’s downtown district to the stadium, expect it to take about a half-hour or so, depending on where you’re departing from. Most of the scenic walk follows 14th Street through Auraria, before connecting with Walnut Street as you approach the colossal construction.
