Denver Metro and Neighborhood Information

Denver, widely known as the Mile High City, is literally a mile high above sea level. Residents can stand at the actual one-mile mark on the 15th step of the State Capitol Building. Denver is located in the Platte River Valley on the High Plains and is east of the front range of the southern Rocky Mountains.

Founded during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush in the Kansas Territory in 1858, Denver became the middle point between the eastern and western states. Today, the city has continued to stay alive and vibrant and boasts an array of activities for residents. Head to the hip, historic district locals call LoDo (short for lower downtown) where 26 blocks of Victorian red brick warehouses have been converted to brewpubs, rooftop cafes, jazz clubs and bistros. Stroll the 30 galleries of the Santa Fe Art district or head to the Highlands and sample its uber-hot restaurants. Old South Gaylord and Old South Pearl Streets are known for its authentic cuisines.

Breathtaking vistas

But if you want to connect with nature, Red Rocks Amphitheatre offers spectacular concerts throughout the summer plus outdoor movies once a week. The backdrop of the Rocky Mountains and Denver's city skyline is breathtaking. Other outdoor activities include over 14,000 acres of mountain parks, 4,000 acres of traditional parks and parkways, 130 miles of trails and an abundance of skiing slopes on the Rocky Mountains.

Another huge attraction is the city's professional sports teams, which include the Denver Broncos (NFL), the Denver Nuggets (NBA) and the Colorado Rockies (MLB). To see these teams play year-round, the surrounding 79 Denver neighborhoods are an excellent choice to reside. Other popular enclaves include Capitol Hill, Highland, Washington Park, Golden Triangle and downtown. The downtown area, along with other metro areas such as Cherry Creek and West Metro, has much to choose from with regard to great shops, restaurants and bars.
