Traveling from Denver through DIA, can be fun (in its ways,) it can be a hassle, and it can be pricey. Colorado's largest airport made a list of the most expensive ones.

It could be that we've all just become accustomed to "airport" prices. We all know that we're going to be paying more, if only because of "supply and demand:" they have it, we want it. Now.

Even when you budget for a vacation that leaves DIA, you probably add in a certain amount for "getting a bite at the airport." Would you be surprised to find out that travelers at DIA are paying more than nearly any other airport in North America?

DIA Named Among Most Expensive Airports

That research put San Diego International at the top of the list of "most expensive," costing travelers about $575 for those three things. DIA came in at #2 on that list.

How Expensive Is it at Denver International Airport?

  • Pint of Beer: $7.41 (below the average)
  • Parking spot: $30/night.
  • Hotel Stay: $477.33
  • Total: $514.74

Of course, this data doesn't even factor in the cost of food (that's Canada for you,) so you'd be adding at least another $15 to that $515, if you were a traveler having to stay at DIA.

Who Was the Least Expensive Airport? lists San Jose International as being the least expensive, with the cost of the "three items" coming in at only $105.08.

Yes, Casa Bonita is back, and better than ever. It's truly remarkable how they were able to re-do so much, yet it still felt just as "homey" as it has all these years. They didn't take away the things that made Casa Bonita the Colorado, and now the worldwide icon that it is. Let me start with the look... It looks fantastic. They nailed the upgrades and renovations. The service was phenomenal. The entertainment was fantastic as well. The food? We'll get to that... But allow us to take you inside and give you a sneak peek at the Colorado Icon that is, Casa Bonita!
