Denver is renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty, Rocky Mountain recreation, and over 300 days of sunshine each year. Add to that award-winning arts, culture, and cuisine, plus dozens of ski resorts within a one to two-hour drive, and you have the recipe for one unbeatable lifestyle. With a population of over 700,000, and the Metro Area nearing three million, Denver is the 5th fastest growing city in the U.S. The nickname "Mile High City" comes from Denver's official elevation, which is exactly one mile above sea level at 5,280 feet. In Denver, you truly have it all. For music buffs, nothing compares to witnessing a show at Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre. This open-air venue is built into a prehistoric rock structure just 10 miles west of the city and has seen the likes of Sting, The Beatles, and U2 grace the stage. In the summer, the whole community comes together for live jazz at City Park. And you havent lived until youve rooted for the Rockies baseball team at Coors Field. Come fall, its hayrides and pumpkin patches, backyard barbecues and Broncos football at Empower Field at Mile High. Of course, by winter everyone is gearing up for day trips into the mountains and weekend getaways on the slopes. Whether youre looking to explore new terrain, take in a game, discover emerging artists, or indulge in the citys many food and wine festivals, there is always something new and exciting to get into, just around the corner.
