Like many of the smaller towns that are now suburbs of Denver, Colorado, Greenwood Village was first inhabited during the gold rushes of the late 19th century. The town then grew as an agricultural community before eventually being absorbed into the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood Metropolitan area. It's a great place to stay if you want to be a little bit outside of the heart of the city, and there are some good cheap hotels in Greenwood Village that will be kind to your budget.
Denver International Airport is 29 miles northeast of Greenwood Village, and a regular airport shuttle runs into Denver, where you can change buses at Central Park Station for Greenwood. The airport also has car rental counters in the main terminal, and taxis leave from the exits on level five. Once you've arrived at your choice of hotels in Greenwood Village, get some rest before checking out the town. Westlands Park is a relaxing place to walk, and if you have kids, they'll love the play areas—the park has great views of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.
