Enjoying Denver, Colorado
Life in the Mile High City
At the foot of the Rocky Mountains, Denver is a beautiful city. With 300 days of sunshine a year, Denver is one of the fittest cities in the nation. Living here naturally fosters a love of the great outdoors. But Denver doesn't stop at offering the nation's largest city park system, 90 golf courses and an incredible 850 miles of paved bike trails-Denver is also a cultural and sophisticated city.
With the tenth largest downtown in the U.S.-a bustling area with a mile-long pedestrian promenade lined with outdoor cafes and vibrant flowers-there is lots to see and do in Denver. Mountain-views abound and the panorama visible from Denver is 120 miles long and includes nearly 200 named peaks. Downtown is also home to three new sports stadiums, eight professional sports teams, 300 restaurants, a wonderfully restored historic district, several museums, great shopping, the second largest performing arts center in the nation, and three college campuses. And, in the spirit of the wild west, each winter Denver hosts one of the one of the world's largest rodeos: the National Western Rodeo and Stock Show.
