Denver What to Pack: 15 reviews and 2 photos
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: As the weather in Denver is ever-changing (I've actually seen 3 seasons in just ONE day), plan your wardrobe for layers. That way if you're momentarily too warm you can take off a layer but still have the option to put it back on when the winds shift 10 minutes later.
As we are 1 mile closer to the sun, the sun is significantly brighter and more intense here. Sunglasses and Sunscreen are a must during anytime of the year!
Miscellaneous: If you are staying in the downtown Denver area, the merchants downtown capitalize on the fact that they have an almost 'captive consumer base' and increase prices accordingly. Prices in the suburbs and away from downtown are significantly lower.
