The town of Parker, Colorado, serves mainly as a commuter town for the state capital, Denver, which lies 24 miles to the northwest. Parker also makes a great base for visitors to the area: It's close enough to get to the big city quickly, and it's also easy to get out and about to explore the great outdoors without having to worry too much about traffic. Book a stay in one of the best hotels in Parker, and experience both the urban and rural delights that Colorado has to offer.
Parker lies 28 miles to the south of Denver International Airport, and you can get there by taking the airport shuttle as far as the 40th Avenue Park & Ride, then changing to bus No. 153. Alternatively, you can rent a car from the airport terminal, or hail a cab there on level five. After arriving at your choice of hotels in Parker, head into town. There are several attractions such as the Wildlife Experience art exhibition, which displays over a hundred animal paintings and sculptures, and the Vehicle Vault, home to a collection of rare vintage cars. Denver also has some great attractions, like the Colorado State Capitol building (which you can tour) and the impressive Denver Art Museum, which holds a huge collection of American Indian art. Denver's nightlife scene, particularly in Lower Downtown, is buzzing—check out Denver hotel deals if you're staying out and don't want to have far to go. Colorado's natural beauty can't be missed, and the Rocky Mountains are just an hour's drive to the west. If you didn't pick one up at the airport, rent a car in Parker and hit the road.
