I have always loved flying into or out of Denver International Airport. I can't exactly put my finger on what exactly makes it feel the way it does, but it just feels like home. I took my first-ever flight out of DIA to Atlanta nearly 20 years ago. Maybe it's the nostalgia that makes me love DIA.

Jeppesen Terminal reminds me of a circus tent on steroids. It's vast, open and I am always in awe of the architecture when I am going through TSA. Denver International Airport is without a doubt a great airport and Club Med thinks so too.
