It's hard to believe that there only a few short months left in 2019! If you're a rave mom like me, you may already be thinking about where to spend New Year's Eve and trying to put together travel plans for you and the squad for the perfect, most magical way to end 2019 and start 2020 together!
Fortunately, this year I'm living in Denver so this will be my first time attending Decadence without having to travel! If you're traveling from out of town, here are some tips from a Veteran Decadence Traveler to make your adventure to Decadence Colorado a magical, yet efficient trip!

Where to Stay
If you're looking for hotels at Decadence, there are tons of places to stay nearby the Colorado Convention Center which is conveniently located right near downtown Denver. Fortunately for you, Global Dance has put together this handy guide to finding the perfect hotel: Check it out here.
How to Get to Downtown Denver
DIA is the only major airport hub, and because it is such a major hub, flights from other major cities are usually fare-ly affordable (see what I did there)? Also, the RTD Light Rail station goes straight from DIA straight downtown to Union Station, which is where you'll likely be staying since it's so close to the Convention Center! The ride is only $10 and takes about 40 minutes.
What to Pack
In addition to the standard rave packing, remember - it will be freezing! Check out iHeart's faux fur selection so you can be fashionable and warm! On the flip side, it can also be sunny and 60 degrees in the middle of winter. Bottom line? I recommend layers. Also pro tip: on the nights of the event: if it's freezing cold, consider wearing sweats over your rave outfit to the show, then stuffing them in your backpack or locker once inside. Trust me, you'll thank me later!)
Where to Eat
I LOVE that there are so many options to eat in Denver, especially downtown! From sandwiches to ramen to Italian, Denver has it all. 303 Magazine typically puts together a monthly food guide for hidden gems - I highly recommend checking it out!
