    Each concourse has a huge sculptural centerpiece. Terminal A: massive train tracks. B: big metal arch. C: beautiful manicured vaguely Japanese gardens that you can't walk in and Bill Daniels’s jet.

    Here's where the cot is: upstairs from Gate B37, in the back of the cubicles set up for "business travel" (really it's just a place to charge your electronic items and sit at a desk). Pillow included!

    First airport to offer this: Make free 10-minute international phone calls to most countries or unlimited USA calls from any of the "pay" phones at DIA! So convenient for international travelers!

    Concourse C has these pristine vaguely Japanese gardens that seem cruise shippishly manicured by underpaid men. Yet there is no entrance onto them whatsoever. Add it to the list of DEN conspiracies.

    Skip the main security in the center of the terminal and walk the bridge to Concourse A, it's always half the length/time. If you're flying out of B or C, you can easily grab the train from here

    If headed to the mountains, always choose Uber options. From/To Vail in UberXL US280.00 and UberSUV US420.00. During winter, just make sure that the car that picks you up has the right gear and tires.

    Probably the longest airport to get into or out of. Takes about 30 minutes just to get from your gate to baggage, then plan on 30 more if you're shuttling to a rental car place. Slowest security ever.

    There are 3 security line options regardless of airline: north, south & the bridge to concourse A (north end). Each has direct access to the train which will quickly take you to any of the concourses.

    In Concourse B, if the bars on the lower level are crowded (particularly during sports), check the bars in the mezzanine in the center of the concourse. Much easier to find a seat up there.

    If you need transportation to a downtown hotel, use SuperShuttle. Round trip was about $30. Pretty fast and painless. However, you will have a bus full so get comfy. Window seats are the best.

    If you need a shuttle to the airport hotels, wait on the east side of the terminal. Shuttles pick up from that side first. If full, they may not come by on the west side and you'll be waiting for ages

    They have a Clear lane, which is probably worth it if you fly in and out of here often. The Pre Check lane is filed with passengers who don't know what they're doing and slow the process up.
