Relocation to Denver…how do I get there?
Relocating to Denver in the 1950’s there was one main way to get here…the train. Back then the interstate highway system was still in Eisenhower’s dreams. Cross country car travel was much harder on 2 lane roads, and commercial air travel was expensive and in it’s infancy. Today you can still take the train to Denver on Amtrak, but the ride, the amenities and experience are so much different. As an example just imagine waking up on the train, showering and dressing in that business suit before breakfast, then disembarking in the downtown of your destination, maybe at Denver’s Union Station! I guess you can tell I enjoy the train, and train travel to and from Denver is pretty darn good on the California Zephyr. Yet I still love the more formal nature of travel “back in the day” so to get a flavor of what travel was like then I suggest you watch the Alfred Hitchcock movie North by Northwest with Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint shows off the premier train of the day, New York Central’s 20th Century Limited. It is a great classic suspense cops & robbers type movie, but only black & white.
Now, should that relocation to Denver be in your future, for that first trip you will probably fly in to Denver International Airport (DIA) and then rent a car. The airport and the car rental row are so far from downtown and where you may be going you might want to look at this quick video (there are a couple of others too-the first one is just fun) to figure out where things are:
