Like I have blogged about in the past, I really enjoy traveling, so when an opportunity at work arrives for me to go across the country I always jump at the opportunity. This time it was to go visit another office just outside Denver Colorado. So I packed my bags and rented a vehicle from Alamo and drove half way across the country. You see Alamo is currently having this great deal where if you rent a vehicle on a one way trip out of Florida its only $19.99 a day. The one thing my company likes just slightly less than making money is saving money.
Now my business trips always offer me time to take a break and see some of the sites. Here in the Mile High City there are some great places to visit. Since I had a lot of free time at night I decided to head down to the Lakeside Amusement Park. Just about anywhere you go in the city you see this place lit up in a sea of swirling lights as the rides movie around. The best part is it’s relatively cheap to get in, and they even have a wooden roller coaster as well as some classic carnival rides.
Something that has kind of become a habit of mine is to visit the zoos of the major cities I have visited. So my Saturday was spent tracking down the Denver Zoo and exploring the seven hundred species of animals that the place has to offer. In fact the entrance of the park had a nice little greeting of a full sized tiger that they were letting guests pet. I expected this big fearsome animal but I felt like I was just petting an oversized cat as it snored sleeping. If I had to suggest a zoo to anyone this place is great, and once again very inexpensive.
Denver has a lot more historical sites that I really want to see, but just didn’t have the time. Most of them aren’t open on weekends or at the hours I had free time, so I will have to come back some time in the future when I can see all the great stuff!
