The Mile High City sits magnificently, but isolated, on a plateau exactly one mile above sea level and over 600 miles from the next closest major city. As one of America’s youngest cities, Denver is the leader of the Rocky Mountain West in entertainment, shopping, culture, sports and recreation. With its growth in the industries of computers and telecommunications, this metropolis is certainly “looking forward” and expected to continue quickly growing in population. Denver’s visitors come from all over the world every year to enjoy the many Rocky Mountain views and activities.
