Denver is a beautiful city with a fabulous view, clean and pleasant downtown shopping district, cultural activities, and a comfortable climate.  Metro Denver's population of 2.3 million definitely qualifies it as a large city (it's actually the 20th largest metro area in America)  but there is still a friendly western charm.   

Be sure to enjoy the 200 + parks, performing arts complex, 16th Street Mall, and the variety of architecture which represents the many changes Denver has seen since the early gold rush days.  LoDo (actually Lower Downtown) is a trendy area of the city renovated from Victorian beginnings into pubs, restaurants, shops, and galleries.

If you are flying into Denver you will be able to experience one of its prides, Denver International Airport.  Opened in 1995 this sprawling, $4.3 billion facility is one of the largest in the World.  Also in Denver is the $215 million Coors Field, home to the Colorado Rockies.  The Pepsi Center is home to the Stanley Cup Champion Avalanche as well as offering special events and Nuggets (NBA) games.  The Sports Authority Stadium is home to the Denver Broncos. Also in downtown Denver, visitors and residents alike can experience the thrilling rides at Elitch Gardens or see the awesome array of animals at the Downtown Aquarium.

Despite what many people think Denver enjoys a mild climate.  While snow aplenty falls in the nearby mountains, Denver enjoys over 300 sunny days a year; that's actually more hours of sun than San Diego!  Summers are warm but with little humidity and winters are pleasant, often surprising newcomers with 60 degree days!  After a short time in Denver you will learn to be ready for anything.
