The “Mile High City” makes its residence among the towering mountains and sweeping prairies, creating a memorable and lasting experience for both Denver citizens and visitors. As the capital of Colorado, Denver’s position along the Rocky Mountains affords it a semi-arid climate of comfortably warm temperatures and 300 sunny days a year. This also makes for interesting changes in weather patterns, as the city is known for its sudden but brief thunderstorms. Beautiful parks, biking and running trails, and a citywide, walker-friendly environment mean that most people take to the outside for their daily activities. Spritely pubs, clubs and restaurants give Denver an abundance of nightlife options, as well as the extensive and local music scene. There is a reason Denver was once deemed the “Queen City of the West.”
