Things To Do In Parker
“Despite being a relatively new development, the population of Parker, which is located in Douglas County, is rising steadily, with a current population of over 50,000.”
Parker is a fairly large town, but it’s far from the busyness of downtown Denver, which is only 23 miles away. The suburban environment is great for visitors who like to avoid heavy crowds while remaining close to all of the area’s big attractions and facilities.
The Cherry Creek River, which runs through Parker, is a prominent feature of the town. The downtown area is filled with small coffee shops, restaurants, boutique stores, and green fields, and there are various hiking and biking paths on the outside.
How Do You Get From The Denver Airport to Parker?
One of the most difficult aspects of traveling is determining how to get to the airport, particularly if you are not in your hometown.
Whether you’re moving to Parker for world-class tourist destinations or traveling for business, here are some of the various ways to get from Denver International Airport to Parker.
TRANSPORTATION BY BUS
“There is no direct bus service from Denver Airport (DEN) to Parker. There are services, however, that depart from Denver Airport Station Gate 9 and arrive at Victorian Dr & Mainstreet via Nine Mile Station Gate A. The total travel time, including transfers, is around 2h 3m. The distance between Parker and Denver International Airport (DEN) is 32.7 miles.”
Many people opt for bus travel as it comes with many advantages. As the bus is bigger, there are more customers paying, allowing the ride cost to break down, making the bus ride more affordable for each passenger. But on the other hand, there is no privacy in buses. There are many people and you have very little personal space. Nothing prevents the person sitting next to you from reading texts or the screen of your laptop, listening in on your phone calls, or inspecting the stuff of your handbag, which is unsafe when visiting Denver for the first time. This also indicates that you have no protection from what others choose to do on the bus.
Secondly, you are exposed to germs from other passengers who are coughing, sneezing, or showing signs of infectious illnesses.
TRANSPORTATION BY TRAIN
“There is no direct train operating from Denver Airport to Parker. however, you can take the train from Denver Airport station to Peoria Station Track 2. From there you can take the tram to Lincoln station. And from Lincoln station, you can take a bus to S Jordan Rd & Rock Brook Blvd. This whole journey takes approximately 2 hours.”
No turbulence, no traffic: boarding a train can be a pleasurable way to travel. However, no means of transportation is perfect. Especially when you are traveling to or from Denver Airport.
One major disadvantage is that there is no assigned seating. It’s not usually a problem, but for passengers who want window seats, the train’s policies may be disappointing. Seating is normally assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
TRANSPORTATION BY UBER
Uber is also another great way to travel to Parker.
