Wausau, WI, is served by two airports. The Central Wisconsin Airport is a regional airport located 15.5 miles from downtown Wausau at 200 CWA Drive in nearby Mosinee, MI. The Central Wisconsin Airport provides cheap flights from Wausau with Delta Connection, United Express and American Connection flying the first leg of any routes to either Chicago or Detroit. The Wausau Downtown Airport, lies within the city boundaries but only offers flights for private and charter airplanes. Flights can be booked online using Orbitz.com.
Parking at the Central Wisconsin Airport is available in a lot located just north of the airport's terminal building. Spaces are available free for 45 minutes to allow time for drop-offs. Short-term parking is $1 an hour up to seven hours. For long-term parking of seven hours or more, the rate is $7 a day. Parking payment can be made with a credit card at the entrance gate or with cash using the PayStation machine in the terminal near the baggage claim upon retrieving your vehicle.
Transportation to the airport from Wausau is available through Courtesy Cab and Taxi Time cab service. Both taxi services are metered, with the fare varying according to pickup location but averaging approximately $39 from the city to the airport.
George's Restaurant is a great place to have a last meal in town before departing Wausau. The prices are fairly cheap, and the menu is filled with traditional breakfast favorites. There's also a restaurant in the Central Wisconsin Airport where you can eat a quick meal if you're in a rush to catch one of the cheap flights from Wausau arranged by Orbitz.com.
Many of the major domestic and international carriers offer relatively cheap flights to Denver International Airport, the primary airport serving the greater Denver area. The airport is roughly 28 miles east of downtown Denver and a little over an hour from the closest major ski resort. Whether you're coming into town on business or for a ski vacation, be sure to use Orbitz.com to reserve your flights and hotel.
The RTD bus is the primary means of public transportation in and around Denver, so most visitors use a private car service, share-a-ride shuttle or taxi to get into town. Many of the large hotels also offer free shuttle service to and from the Denver airport, and there are chartered shuttles and buses to take you to the outlying ski resorts. A cab from the airport to the downtown area will cost you between $60 and $70, so you might be better off using Orbitz.com to add a rental car to your low-fare ticket purchase.
The summer months are mild in Denver, with average temperatures ranging from the low 60s to the mid-80s. The average winter temperatures in Denver range from the teens to the low 40s, and you can expect anywhere from 22 to 61 inches of snow each season. Layer your clothes in the summer to accommodate mild and warm temperatures, but be sure to bundle up in the winter.
Although the city has its share of high-end eateries, historic landmarks, museums and shopping venues, the Denver lifestyle is all about the great outdoors. Denver has more than 4,000 acres of traditional parks and 14,000 acres of mountain parks to keep outdoor enthusiasts engaged. Enjoy your stay, and don't forget to use Orbitz.com to find cheap flights to Denver for your next Colorado vacation.
