Mile High City
Denver is known as the "Mile High City" because its official elevation is exactly one mile — or 5,280 feet (1,609 meters) above sea level.

Located at the base of the Rocky Mountains, it's no surprise that Denver's biggest draw is the great outdoors — it is home to more than 200 parks, historic rock formations, three major sports stadiums, championship golf courses and fabulous ski resorts.



In addition to it's world-class cultural attractions — and the nation's second largest Performing Arts Center (New York City's Lincoln Center is the largest) — Denver also has amusement and water parks, fine museums, specialty shops, fun restaurants, and a state-of-the-art aquarium.

Denver, the 10th largest city in the nation, was home to the 2008 Democratic National Convention.



The Best Time to Visit Denver
Denver boasts 300 days of sunshine a year. Its mild, dry, sunny climate makes it a popular tourist destination — any time of year.

Spring and Fall are relatively mild. Rainfall is minimal — about the same as Los Angeles. Summer is hot with low humidity — this is also peak tourist time.

Winters are cooler, with plenty of snow — all the better for skiing and snowboarding. Ski season typically runs from mid-November to mid-April.
