The Mile High City Welcomes You!

Denver is a clean, young, and green city with more than 200 parks, and dozens of tree-lined boulevards, and boasts 300 days of sunshine.

Denver has a central downtown area – the tenth largest downtown in America based on workers and retail. Within walking distance are a wide variety of shops and restaurants. The 16th Street Pedestrian Mall cuts through the heart of downtown Denver.  Lined with 200 trees and 50,000 flowers, this festive, mile-long pedestrian promenade has 28 outdoor cafes and offers Denver's best people-watching. I.M. Pei designed the gray and pink granite pathway to resemble the pattern of a diamondback rattlesnake. Free hybrid shuttles run up and down the mall, enabling people to get on and off at multiple locations along the mall.

The surrounding neighborhood of Lower Downtown (called “LoDo” by locals), on the northern edge of downtown Denver, offers one of the nation’s greatest concentrations of Victorian and turn-of-the-century buildings and warehouses, many of which have been refurbished to house restaurants, art galleries, offices and shops. There are more than 90 restaurants, music clubs and cafes in LoDo.

Denver is also home to many museums, art galleries, and a superb music and performing arts scene, as well as being a stepping stone to adventure in the Rockies.
