About Denver, Colorado. Urban sophistication meets outdoor adventure in The Mile High City.
Peruse some interesting facts and get the tidbits of information you need before you visit.
The mild climate surprises many people; don’t be fooled by the occasional winter flurry – Denver is nestled at the base of the Rockies, not in them. Be sure to check the weather report before you pack.
In the summer of 1858, a small group of prospectors from Georgia crossed the great plains of the Colorado Territory and made a region-changing discovery at the base of the Rocky Mountains. Gold.
Denver is also a city of neighborhoods, each with its own unique charm. With a diverse population, there is something for everyone.
Since its Wild West beginnings, Denver has attracted all kinds of people.
