Need to Know About Denver
Nicknamed the Mile High City for its location exactly one mile above sea level, Denver is a destination for more than just those with a head for heights. Established in 1858 when prospectors first discovered gold in the area, Denver was the epitome of a Wild West town in its early days. Denver’s history isn’t limited to gold nuggets though; the capital of Colorado has long been a champion of the arts. In its early days, performances were held in saloons and today, Denver features a dedicated performing arts complex, an opera house, 10 theatres and a world-class concert hall. Denver’s proximity to some of the best Colorado wilderness is another reason why this city ranks so highly with visitors. A line-up of snow-capped mountains backdrops the city and it would be easy to waste a serious chunk of time just soaking in those views. Also working in Denver’s favour is its sporting prowess (a total of 7 professional sports teams), its excellent breweries, beautiful green parks, and sunny climate.
