Denver receives an astonishing 300 days of sunshine every year – that’s morethan San Diego and Miami Beach! With an annual average temperature of 50 degrees, the climate is perfect for summer hiking and winter skiing through the mountains. Denver is nicknamed, The Mile High City, because it is exactly one mile above sea level. It has also been called the “Queen of the City Plains,” because of its role in the agricultural industry of the plains regions along the foothills of the Colorado Front Range. Then there’s “The Rail City” for it’s important role as a North American rail hub, and “Capital of the Rocky Mountain Empire” as the dominant city in the Rocky Mountain region. Whatever you call it, Denver is an incredible place to live, work and play.
Denver’s beautiful natural terrain lends itself to all sorts of outdoor activities. In the mountains, you can take ski and bike tours, guided hikes, nature walks and snow shoeing trips.

There is the Colorado Rockies baseball team, and basketball’s Denver Nuggets and hockey’s Colorado Avalanche who share a brand new stadium.
