Tucked 5,280 feet up into the Rocky Mountains, Denver, Colorado is not only one of the highest elevated major cities in the world, it's beloved for its combination of outdoor activities and metropolitan entertainment. Places like the Colorado Convention Center (where a giant blue bear statue can be seen peering through the Center’s glassed ... Read more
exterior) demonstrate the fun personality of this vibrant modern city. With a growing population of over three million, many like-minded outdoor enthusiasts, Denver is the hub to some of the best and biggest places to enjoy your favorite winter sports (and in the summer, catch a baseball game at Coors Field.) When the weather's good (which is usually is), walk around the boutique shops of Larimer Square, or tiptoe through the tulips in the Botanic Gardens.

You may think of Denver as more of a winter destination, what with the plethora of ski resorts that surround it, but the city is actually pretty great at any time of year. Temperatures start to climb above 60F ... Read more
(16C) in April and stay warm through late October, which provides the perfect climate for getting outdoors under the blue skies for a hike or a picnic. Fall plays host to a number of popular annual festivals, many of which include imbibing (beer, wine, etc.), but do bring layers, both to put on when the weather gets chilly and to take off when the beer sweats kick in.

There's so much to love about Denver. Great places to eat, fun things to do, good proximity to the mountains. For the largest city in Colorado, there's still a very down to earth feel about it.

The American southwest is breathtaking--and there's so much to see between Denver and Phoenix. I'll post specific reviews of some of the places I recommend but figured having a list of sites, in the order in which you could visit them would be helpful:

1) Denver, CO
2) Aspen, CO
3) Moab, UT (Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, plus Horseshoe Canyon)
4) Mesa Verde National Park (Cortez, CO)
5) Monument Valley (Olijato-Monument Valley,UT)
6) Antelope Canyon/Corkscrew Canyon (Page, AZ)
7) Grand Canyon National Park
8) Sedona, AZ
9) Phoenix, AZ

Denver is a wonderful place to live, work, and play. No matter the season, there is ALWAYS something to see or do. Spring there is hiking. camping, and basketball. Summer there is hiking, camping, whitewater rafting and baseball. Fall there is hiking, camping, leaf peeping and football. Winter there is snowshoeing, skiing, snowmobiling and hockey. Year round there are many awesome museum to explore. If you are not accustomed to the altitude then take it easy and drink plenty of water.

The leaves start turning early in the resort towns outside Denver, but the city’s foliage takes center stage during October, when you can see it nicely from the Cherry Creek Bike Trail, or along the High Line Canal, lined with brilliant yellow cottonwood trees. Beer fans, however, might be forgiven for never noticing any trees. Fall here brings a chockablock lineup of sudsfests: the Denver Oktoberfest, the Denver Beer Fest, and the Great American Beer Festival, featuring 2,000 different beers from more than 400 brewers.

Denver is quite frankly a town that has been unappreciated for way too long. Take a risk and visit, you will be pleasantly surprised. We have four seasons in the same day, people who are very serious about their fitness, the enduring beauty of the mountains, and great food!

If you enjoy going to the theater some of the biggest shows find their way to the Denver Center for Performing Arts. We are a mile high and the altitude can literally take your breath away. The people are friendly, easy going and like to have a good time.

Don't just go straight to the mountains. Hang out in Denver and Boulder. Go to Hanging Lake or the Sand Dunes. Colorado is a huge state with a lot to offer.

Denver and Boulder and definitely for those who are granola, adventurous types. I love the food and local culture here. The beers here are bomb, and everyone here is so fit healthy, and attractive. How can you beat that? If it had an ocean, I would totally move to Denver.

Denver is nicknamed the Mile-High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile above sea level, making it one of the highest major cities in the United States. The Rocky Mountains around create a fantastic view. Denver is subject to sudden changes in weather. Good many restaurants and bars.

What can you really say about the city of Denver? Clean air, blue skies, parks in every corner of the city. Denver is all about life and where you can go in yours. The people are friendly and everyone just seems to understand one another. One of the first cities in the United States to fully decriminalize marijuana, Denver is at the forefront of progressive thinking. Beginning 1 January 2014 Denver will be the center of attention when recreational pot sales will start in the city, allowing anyone 21 and older to legally purchase up to one ounce of marijuana for recreational use. In addition to the progressive thinking taking place in Denver, the city also hosts some of the greatest speakers, musical talent, performance artists and comedians. Art is treasured and can be found in every corner of the city.
