Many people even commute to work by bicycle on one of the most extensive bike path systems in the nation.

Just minutes from the city, the breathtaking Rocky Mountains tower against the horizon, revealing magnificent vistas and outstanding opportunities for skiing, hiking, camping and fishing.

Where will you live while you are in Denver? Whether you want the cultural experience of living with a host family or the privacy of your own hotel room, we will set you up in your ideal home away from home for your stay in Denver. We carefully pick our host families so that you can enjoy a true home away from home experience during your time here. Many of our families have years of experience in hosting our students. They will pick you up from the airport and look after you during your entire stay, right up to dropping you off at the airport for your journey home.

We also offer apartels – hotels with kitchens in the rooms – within walking distance of our school. This can be an economical solution for the executive who requires both the privacy of a hotel and the convenience of a kitchen.
