Denver's Mile High Stadium on Game Day and Beyond!

Denver is known as the Mile High City, and one of its main attractions is Mile High Stadium. Mile High Stadium is home of the Denver Broncos. During the 2014 season, tickets are at a premium. The game against San Francisco has the potential to be as festive as the playoffs. In fact, hotel rates and airfare are cheaper than the price of tickets. Budget conscious travelers will want to wait for a later game to attend. But, die-hard football fans won’t want to miss it.

If you don’t manage to score tickets to your favorite matchup, you can still tour Mile High Stadium on an off-day. Tours are conducted by very knowledgeable tour guides who will make your visit a memorable one. The tour is approximately 1/2 mile in length, so be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. And, the tour lasts about an hour and a half.

Take heart football fans, even if everyone in your travel party is not a sports fan, the architecture and the behind the scenes peek at the stadium will entertain everyone. Most likely it will be the highlight of your trip to Denver. The visit to the locker rooms and the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame Museum are always crowd favorites. The tour stops include an up-close look at the television broadcast areas and the United Club Level.

If you have tickets to a game, stick around for an extra day or two to tour the stadium. With a crowd around, you don’t get an insider look at the stadium. From the Keg Room to the End Zone, you can spend time where the players do. And, the tour takes you to places that you just can’t get to on Game Day.

If you have toured other NFL stadiums, Mile High Stadium has one very unique feature that you won’t find anywhere else. You will be treated to seeing Thunder’s Stall.

Mile High Stadium is on the Platte Valley Trolley route and is only a 10-minute walk from the Light Rail. If you prefer to drive, parking is always free. Ticket prices are nominal and children under the age of 4 can tour the facility for free.
