Denver

Welcome to Denver

 
 

 
A diverse and urban city with spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains
 
 
The lovely city of Denver, founded at the beginning of the Pikes Peak Gold Rush in 1858, is simultaneously the capital of Colorado and its largest city. Nestled between the base of the Rocky Mountains and the High Plains, it is often referred to as “The Mile High City" because it is 5,280 feet above sea level. It is one of America’s fastest-growing cities as the quality of life is rated high among locals. Downtown Denver is just 25 miles from Denver International Airport (DEN), making it an accessible city from which to fly in and out. This city is also great for those who want a mix of outdoor adventure and the city lifestyle.
