Three major interstates run in and out of Denver and like many US cities tend to be congested during rush hour. To avoid the traffic you can consider taking E-470 or the Northwest Parkways, both however, are toll roads. Denver has numbered streets which run east-west and numbered streets which run north-south. To help you orientate yourself while driving know that addresses on named streets correspond to intersecting numbered streets. As well, streets are ordered alphabetically going up as you travel east or west away from the city center.
Downtown gets a bit confusing as it has a diagonal layout, meaning southeast-northwest streets are numbered, while southwest-northeast streets are named. Including a GPS add-on to your reservation will help you navigate and can be especially helpful for those visiting Denver for the first time. We recommend leaving your rental car in pay lot where you can get a better rate for an entire day.
