TravelPlex’s Destination of the Month takes you to the Mile-High City of Denver.
As one of the nation's youngest major cities, Denver is quickly becoming one of the largest. From its humble beginnings as a gold miner's town, Denver has developed to become the capitol of Colorado. With interstates leaving for various parts of the country in five different directions, the city has also evolved into the “crossroads of the west”.
Shielded by the Rockies Mountains and sheltered from the punishing weather of the Plains, Denver residents enjoy a mild climate that is surprisingly enjoyable. The city is popular with skiers, who can visit an array of ski resorts within a few hours' drive (including Aspen, Keystone, and Breckinridge).
Hikers and outdoors enthusiasts can enjoy the recreational opportunities that lie in the nearby Rocky Mountain National Park. With great restaurants, major professional sports teams, and dozens of concerts and plays performed at the Denver Performing Arts Complex and Red Rocks Amphitheater, one can see why Denver is not only a great city to visit for business, but also for an extended vacation.
