    You have to walk West (from Union Stations) across Wewatta and Chestnut if you want to catch the E, C, or W lines to Mile High Station.

    I wouldn't take a taxi. It's an absolute cluster when you get close to the stadium. The train will be much cheaper and easier to use.

    Every time I'm in Denver we stay Downtown and train to the stadium. The walk with all of the other Broncos' fans makes it well worth it!

    Well, both of us will eat about anything, but I’m thinking either a Steakhouse or a good Mexican restaurant for Saturday.

    Good to know on the hotels. I’ll double check ours. And thanks!
    Benny's is a very good Mexican Restaurant. It's on 7th & Grant, near downtown.

    Not sure what the non-adult beverages cost, but all concessions at the stadium are pricey. Expect to pay about $20-25 for a sandwich and a drink.

    Most, if not all, hotels will hold your bags.

    There is a light rail line that runs to the airport, but I have never taken it. Not sure how often it runs.

    There are a lot of good places to eat in downtown, what do you like?

    Hey guys,

    So my brother and I will be attending our first Regular Season Denver Bronco game on Opening Day vs Seattle!! Flying in on Saturday, got us a hotel downtown, and will be heading over as soon as we can get in.

    We will be hitting the concession stands, so what foods do you suggest? Neither of us drink “adult” beverages, so what can we expect to pay for some eats and drinks?

    Hey man, and as each day draws closer, I’m getting giddier and giddier. I feel like a little school kid fixing to go on my first field trip!

    A couple of things: we’ve got to fly home Sunday night. I’m curious if the hotel can hold our bags until we leave the stadium and swing by there and pick them up, despite the fact it’ll be after checkout times. Anyone else have an answer to this issue?

    And what about taxis? Saw where someone mentioned a train station in the FAQs thread. Does it take you to the airport?

    Also, anyone else on here going to the game? Help out a displaced Bronco fan with as much information and advice you want to share. Like a good place for supper Saturday night? Anyone tailgating with breakfast? Lol

    Seriously, just really excited to take it all in.
