Subject says it all. I've got a 3-hour layover at DEN today, and wondering if there's anything cool to see there.

There's a sweet Lear Jet hanging in one of the terminals.  Great story about it flying around out west in the early cable TV days.   Kinda wish I was that guy back in the day.

Croc's store?

There is seating in the upper deck area right near some of those planes, and yes, cool stories to go along with the cool planes. Its a quiet area up there so good place to chill. La Casita is my favorite food spot. Very good "authentic" airport Mexican food.  Unless you have time to go hit a dispensary or get food off property, thats all i'd do there. Walk a bunch, enjoy the scenery and find a chill place to eat my La Casita yummy food near cool planes.

Figure out how to profit from their lettuce disposal boxes?

3 hours isn't a whole lotta time to do anything.  If you were here longer I could come pick you up and go someplace...

Yes, 3 hours isn't long - especially if your incoming flight arrives there late.

Apparently there's some weird stuff there involving Freemasons and the artwork on site: https://www.thetravel.com/20-reasons-why-the-mysterious-denver-airport-is-like-no-other-in-the-world/

 Three hours should be plenty of time to offer a sacrafice to Blucifer. Or am I thinking of the wrong airport? 

I'm lame. I walked a round trip of B concourse, then had an overpriced but tasty lunch at Elway's. Layover is over, next flight is boarding now.

Chuckle at the "Climax Jerky" kiosk, because you are also secretly an adolescent.

I'm late to the party, but I was going to say "Investigate all the weird conspiracy theories surrounding that airport?"

I don't think 3h is long enough to investigate all of them.
