Voted as the best U.S. Airport for Art by USA Today, there is a lot to see at DIA. Most notably, you will see the infamous red-eyed Mustang on your way in or out. This sculpture was installed in 2008 and has been faced with much controversy by Denverites.
DIA is home to plenty of murals, sculptures and artifacts. If you have time to kill, map out all the artwork and plan a walk to see it all. There is a lot to see and an art tour will keep you entertained while you wait for your flight.
Airport dining has come a long way in the past few years. DIA is now home to a Root Down location. This restaurant first opened in Highland in Denver and is one of the areas most popular restaurants.
Root Down is a farm to table restaurant providing craveable food with bright flavors. Take advantage of the airport location, located in Concourse C, as the Denver location generally requires a reservation pretty far in advance.

- Aviator’s Sports Bar & Bar-B-Que - Concourse B
- Boulder Beer Tap House - Jeppesen Terminal
- Cru Food and Wine Bar - Concourse B
- Denver Chophouse - Concourse A
- Elway’s - Concourse B
- Grill and Vine - Hotel
- Lefty’s Front Range Grille - Concourse C
Traveling is stressful, especially during the holidays. If you find yourself stuck at the airport give yourself a treat with a massage. There are express spas in all of the gates at DIA offer you an opportunity to relax and unwind.
If massages aren’t for you there are several airline clubs you may be able to access. Talk to your airline about their policies. If you are stuck overnight, treat yourself to a night at the new Westin at DIA. Aside from the planes flying overhead you’ll hardly notice you’re still at the airport!
Have some fun with your group and create a moving walkway video!
