Colorado's "Mile High City" sits on a plain nestled against the Rocky Mountains which provide a dramatic view from the window of your Denver flight as you land. Denver balances big-city life with a love of the great outdoors. Here’s where you'll find the nation’s largest city park system, 90 golf courses, about 650 miles of paved bike trails, and a mile-long pedestrian promenade in downtown.
A must-see list, once you step off your Denver flight, would include the Denver Performing Arts Complex, the world’s second-largest performing arts centre, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, an open-air natural theatre and the setting for thousands of rock and classical concerts and the Denver Art Museum which has one of the most impressive collections of Western art in the US and an excellent American Indian collection.
The trendy historic district is Lower Downtown, called LoDo. Carefully restored Victorian buildings are now homes to jazz clubs, art galleries, restaurants, and shops. LoDo, the city's birthplace, is the trendiest part of the city and the heart of Denver's night scene.
