Sports, concerts, parks, and culture in Colorado’s capital
Colorado’s capital city features an extensive pioneer history, an abundance of museums, unparalleled scenery, dozens of entertainment options, and great public transportation. Located near the many ski resorts of the closeby the Rocky Mountains, Denver boasts some of the most beautiful real estate in Colorado from ranches to modern manors, to old-fashioned estates, and downtown penthouses. Recently named as the best place to live in the United States by U.S. News & World Report, Denver has continued to exceed expectations for both newcomers and longtime residents for years and years.
Denver’s storied past includes a rich Native American and pioneer history. The Pike’s Peak Gold Rush brought settlers from the east into Denver and the city grew steadily throughout the remainder of the 19th century. Today, residents of the mile-high city enjoy access to multiple professional and semi-pro sports teams, a thriving economy, scenic mountain ranges, and a lifestyle offering the best of all worlds.
Denver is located within a stone’s throw of some of the nation’s most beautiful scenery. The city enjoys 300 days of sunshine each year on average, with Denver summers escaping the dreaded humidity levels which some other cities suffer from. Denver is fraught with entertainment opportunities ranging from museums to botanical gardens, to breweries and professional sports teams. One weekend, locals can be seen taking in the scenery from a quiet park, and the next weekend can be spent sampling craft beers from one of the city’s several breweries then heading out to watch the Denver Broncos at Mile High Stadium. No matter how you like to spend your days, Denver is sure to offer something for everyone’s social preferences.

Cherry Creek Shopping Center is Denver’s premier shopping destination, home to over 160 shops and restaurants.
