The Mile High City located at exactly 5,280 feet above sea level. The capital and largest city of Colorado. Contrary to belief, it is NOT Midwestern but located on the Great Plains along the east front of the Rocky Mountains. Denver gets over 300 days of sunshine a year and is a great city to enjoy the great outdoors. Only in Denver can you get a tan and go snow skiing on the same day. The land east of Denver is the flattest land in the country, and is so flat that you can see the skyscrapers of downtown Denver from miles and miles away when your are in the middle of nowhere. Also contrary to popular belief, Denver is not very cold. The Rocky Mountains to the west act as a barrier and protect the city from all the snow that plagues the plains to the immediate east. When it does snow, it is not usually on the ground very long. The people of Denver are OK; not necessarily nice like in the South, but definitely not mean like New York or Boston. The Denver area has numerous suburban communities with cookie-cutter housing developments that look the exact same and continue unabated for miles across the plains. Denver has something for everyone. Its metro population of about 3 million has plenty of neighborhood bars, college students (the bars are usually for them), inner-city wiggers and gangbangers, wealthy suburban residents, middle-class residents and cowboys. Denver is a Rocky Mountain version of Dallas in my opinion.
I wouldn't mind living in Denver if I had family there.

One of the best cities ever! Some of you guys who don't like Denver have only experienced the lame people. Which yeah there is a fare share of lame people, but thats just like any other city. Once you get past the lame asses you will meet some of the chillest and most unique people. Maybe ever thought the reason people drive so slow is that they are high? Colorado weed is the shit! Every city has their problems so stop baggin on Denver! And who ever said Denver was a party city? That doesn't make it any less cool.If you truley hate Denver then I am thinking you aren't even chill enough to be here.
Denver is so chill.
