Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Denver Colorado is known for its beautiful scenery and consistently sunny weather. “The Mile High City" often hosts major events at the Colorado Conference Center, Coors Field (Colorado Rockies), Sports Authority Field at Mile High (Denver Broncos), and Pepsi Center (Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche). Outside of the massive stadiums, major musical acts perform at beautiful Red Rock Amphitheater, as well as Bluebird Theater, Paramount Theater, and Fillmore Auditorium. Once a year, over half a million people gather in Civic Center Park over Labor Day weekend for the 4-day free festival “A Taste of Colorado," which originally celebrated pioneer days in the Old West, but now is mainly a music, food, and art event. Denver has a laid back, liberal, friendly reputation, which has earned the city a reputation for being safe and welcoming.
Denver has over a dozen different neighborhoods that tend to be specialized. The busiest part of Denver is Downtown, which comprises several smaller districts including the museum-rich Golden Triangle District and Capitol Hill. Northeast of Downtown is Five Points, a historic area often called “the Harlem of the West" for its jazz and famous African-American figures that hail from there, both of which are chronicled in the Black American West Museum. Uptown and Cherry Creek are both known as some of the most affluent parts of town, boasting premier shopping and large green spaces (City Park and Cherry Creek State Park, respectively). Located on the South Platte riverfront, Lower Downtown (LoDo) and Larimer are considered the trendiest parts of town with the most lively nightlife, while nearby Riverfront is considered the most family-friendly area. Across the river, the Highlands area is gaining a reputation as the up-and-coming “it" spot, with eclectic eateries and a vibrant arts culture centered around Navajo Arts District. At the other end of town are the Old South Pearl and South Broadway neighborhoods, which are locally renowned for their antique shops and local brewpubs, respectively. Located 12 miles from city center is the Golden District, which is home to the Coors Brewery as well as Wild West culture, which can be experienced first-hand at the Buffalo Bill Museum, Colorado Railroad Museum, and scenic horseback riding trails.
From mountain biking to whitewater rafting, adventure sports are one of the most popular activities in the Denver area. Located just minutes from downtown at the intersection of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River, Confluence Park offers kayak rentals and tours that are bound to give you the best view of the skyline. Further from downtown are Mount Evans and Rocky Mountain National Park, which contain a highway known as Trail Ridge Road that crosses the Continental Divide at two miles above sea level. As a major city, Denver is home to several prominent museums, including the Clyfford Still Museum and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the historic Molly Brown House, a zoo, and an aquarium. Denver also houses one of only four mints in the United States, which is open to visitors for tours. Most of the downtown activity is centered around 16th Street Mall, a completely pedestrian street packed with 1.25 miles of restaurants, bars, shops, and street performers. Located on the South Platte River in the heart of downtown, Elitch Gardens Theme Park offers thrills and fun for all ages, while a few miles outside of town is Dinosaur Ridge, a world famous dinosaur fossil site.
As the largest city in Colorado, transportation options to Denver are diverse and accessible. Fly into Denver International Airport, the largest airport in the United States, or drive in via one of the highways. Navigating Denver without a car is simple and inexpensive, with a bus system, light rail, trolley, and MallRide, the free shuttle that runs along 16th Street, to choose from. Staying true to its reputation for being a fit city, Denver is also easy to get around using bikes, scooters, and pedicabs.
