I'll be in Denver for work this month from the 17th-23rd. I've read the many (quite helpful) questions advising about what's great to see in Denver, so I don't need to hear about the obvious stuff, or even the next tier "wanna see Denver like a local" somewhat less obvious stuff. But I'm a snowflake: beer makes me sleepy, pot will get me fired, and other snowflaky, specific stuff. [more inside]
I need a failsafe way of getting from Fredericksburg, Colorado to the Denver airport by a specific time in July. There's Ubers that go to and from that area, but in my experience sometimes you book the Uber then they don't show, or they take another job, or whatever. I can't have that happen in this scenario. Do you know any transportation services in the area? [more inside]
I'm going to be in Denver and staying in the cherry creek neighborhood, and am meeting a friend who is also not from Denver Sunday evening. What restaurant(s) would the good inhabitants of Denver recommend? One pescatarian (leaning towards veggie) and one omnivore, assume we want to stay under $100/person, but we don't need fancy
We're considering visiting Colorado in late May, flying into Denver. We'd like to experience the Rockies, in a relatively chill way (driving, short hikes, no back country stuff). I'm looking for generic advice about conditions at that time of year (will late spring conditions affect our ability to do certain things/go certain places?), and for specific recommendations of things to do and places to stay. We're willing to drive a few hours from Denver, probably not more than four unless there's something really worth experiencing that's farther. Thanks!

Hello! Any recommendations for outdoor activities/food/drinks/museums/etc in Boulder [Aug 3-6] and Denver [Aug 7-10]? Difficulty level- no car but open to any public transport, rideshare, etc. Veggie friendly restaurants preferred. We already have the hotels booked and plan to go to the rockies game on Aug 9. We're looking for a combination of active and lazy! Thanks in advance!

We are staying in Grand Lake in August and have obtained requisite passes for RMNP. Our group of 6 adults and two teens has 1 non hiker, a dog, and so many questions. We do know the no-dog policy for RMNP, and have passes. RMNP is huge, is there One Entrance in Grand Lake and One Entrance in Estes Park? We plan to experience both areas, and are staying near Columbine Lake. Way more below the fold, including ideas for short side trips, a birthday dinner ideas (The View?). Please help! [more inside]

My husband and I will be visiting Denver for a few days in June. It'll be our first time there. What are some unique things to do/things to see besides the beautiful landscape? Something I wouldn't necessarily find on a google search. Basically, this question from 2015, but updated.

How can I find a *truly* fragrance free Airbnb in Denver? I need to travel for a few days in June and am severely sensitive to fragrances. I’m feeling overwhelmed about finding accommodations, and am open to suggestions that aren’t Airbnb! But I have had terrible luck with hotel situations and people in adjacent rooms using heavy fragrance, so prefer something that is free standing. Are there cabins or something else I’m not thinking of? Do I just need to message every host that pops up in the area individually to inquire? If so, how do I word it so I don’t end up somewhere I can’t stay?

The last time I went to Colorado for a vacation, I had horrible headaches from the altitude. This summer we're going again and I’d like to avoid those if there’s a way to do that. I would also like to have more athletic stamina for hiking at a high elevation. So I have a two-part question: what can I do now to prepare myself so that I minimize headaches from the altitude and that I’ll be ready to hike? We live at 500’, and we are staying in an area of Colorado around 9000’. [more inside]

Hello Mefites. I just found out that pretty much the whole family of a good friend in Denver has tested positive for COVID (her husband and three kids). They are quarantined in their house and our friend group wants to help by sending meals but none of us live there, so I'm looking for suggestions. [more inside]
