How many hours does driving from Houston to Denver, Colorado take?
I’m planning a road trip so I can visit my brother in Denver, but it’s hard to plan the trip since I don’t know how long it should take me to get there. Exactly how many hours does it usually take to drive from Houston to Denver?
Answer provided by
Driving from Houston to Denver takes 15 hours and 20 minutes without traffic—it’s a pretty big drive to take on. That said, a 15-hour drive is certainly doable with a little planning.
Road trips can be loads of fun for everyone involved when they’re thought through. But if you forget to take care of the essentials before hitting the road, you could find yourself in a sticky situation.
Here are a few things to remember before your road trip:
- Check your tire pressure
- Top off your fluids
- Have your AC inspected
- Pack emergency gear and jumper cables
- Bring snacks and water
Since you’re planning to spend a lot of time on the road, it may also be worthwhile to purchase a little extra insurance for the trip. The more you drive, the more likely you are to be in an accident. That’s not to say you’ll be at fault, but other drivers are unpredictable.
