    One of the better mid-sized airports I've traveled through. Very clean and modern with ample food options. And if you didn't sample enough craft beer, there's a Founders outpost just past security.

    It's about time they combined security, and have a shared hall of concessions. Pro tip: for early flights, give yourself an hour before takeoff. Lots of flights stack, causing security lines.

    If you're looking for the taxi stand, go to the door that says "exit to curbside" in the baggage claim area. It's poorly marked. Taxis to downtown area are between $32 - $40.

    Concourse A & B are not connected. To get from one to the other, you have to exit & go through security again on the other side. There are lots of places to sit & eat in-between (outside of security).
