    The Demon Horse, masonic symbols, and creepy murals - conspiracy theorists say these point to a large, underground bunker built beneath DIA to protect the world's elite when the world ends. Yep. Read more

    ROOT DOWN in Terminal C is one of the best airport cocktail bars/restaurants in the country. Very well worth visiting from Terminals A or B to experience...

    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.

    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.

    Want really tasty, farm-to-table food that's also quick? Go to concourse C and eat at Root Down. You won't be disappointed. Their breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails are amazing.

    All train tunnels toward Concourse C are lined with pinwheels. Tunnels toward the Terminal are lined with hatchets. WITH HATCHETS. Sit in the very back or front of any train to get the best view.

    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.

    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

    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.
