Denver and United Airlines Are Bringing Extra Holiday Cheer

Link:   Denver Airport Schedule of Events

Denver airport and United Airlines have teamed up to give travelers a fun diversion to take the edge off a turbulent commute.  They’ve opened an ice rink to the public, and everything is free, including skate rentals!  The ice rink isn’t huge (it’s just a temporary platform, after all), but it’s a great stress reliever.

There are other festivities, too, like:

  • Live entertainment
  • A holiday market in the airport plaza
  • A holiday classic movie shown in the airport plaza

These activities are free, and a great way to pass your layover, whether you’re alone or with a group.  I’ve never been ice skating, but if I end up routing through Denver by January 1, I plan to give it a go!

Bottom Line

The Denver airport and United Airlines are bringing a little extra cheer to what can otherwise be a very chaotic travel season!

They have opened an ice rink with free admission and free skate rentals to travelers.  And other festivities, as well!
