This former Wild West town comes by its mile-high moniker honestly – some spots are literally a mile above sea-level. The so-called Coors Field Effect of Denver’s thin air causing balls to travel faster and farther may be a home advantage for the city’s six professional sports teams. Coupled with 300 days of sunshine a year, dry climate, mountain views and nearly 100 golf courses in the Metro, it also makes Denver a golfer’s paradise. With more than 200 parks in the city, Denver’s spectacular landscape and views take center stage. But the city’s high life bona fides also extend to lifestyle amenities like destination shopping at Cherry Creek North, historic Larimer Square and the 16th Street Mall, award-winning restaurants, craft breweries, and world-class art centers such as Denver Art Museum, MCA Denver, Red Rocks, the River North Arts District and the groovy Meow Wolf.
