City Life - Colorado Style
The City of Denver, CO., at the junction of the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains. Called “The Mile-High City”, due to its elevation at 5,280 feet above sea level, this wonderful city sees more than 300 sunny days per year and a climate that is unexpectedly mild for most of the winter. Denver is uniquely influenced by its western setting, staying true to its cowboy roots while, at the same time, it has a sophisticated cosmopolitan flair. Visitors can enjoy the performing arts, culture, festivals and everything expected from a big city, but with a definite western feel. The Denver Art Museum is one of the largest art museums in the west and has more than 70,000 works sourced from around the world as well as a large collection of Native American Art that is indigenous to the region. It is open year-round and a must-see for anyone visiting this amazing city. At the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, guests can check out exhibits ranging from static aircraft and rockets to an exciting simulator experience.

Baseball fans can check out the MLB Colorado Rockies and for winter hockey action, the Colorado Avalanche while the NFL Champion Denver Broncos and NBA Denver Nuggets also call Denver home.
