The “Mile High City” at the foot of the Rocky Mountains enjoys a mild climate all year round and is an ideal starting point for trips to Wyoming and South Dakota.
With a growing cultural scene, Denver has established itself as a hotspot for concert and art lovers. The 16th Street Mall, the adjacent LoDo as well as the historic district attract trendy shops, street cafes, restaurants, more than 90 brewery bars and several music clubs . In the Cherry Creek shopping district near the city center there are another 500 shops, boutiques and department stores.
Despite its skyscraper skyline, the city has retained the rustic Western character of the city. Under the motto “The New West meets the Old”, hundreds of historical buildings can be found. The Colorado History Museum also tells the stories of trappers, gold seekers, Indians and pioneers. You can find more information at www.visitdenver.com/DE
