Metropolitan Denver Statistics
Located just east of the Rocky Mountains, Denver is one of America's most beautiful cities and has about 300 days of sunshine a year. Denver is also a lively city with a great love of the outdoors. Here you'll find the nation's largest city park system, 90 golf courses and an incredible 650 miles of paved bike trails.
Within walking distance of Denver Central Business District, there are over 5,200 hotel rooms, a convention complex, a performing arts complex, and a wide variety of shops, restaurants and nightclubs. Also within walking distance are some of the city's top attractions including the Denver Pavilions, the Colorado History Museum, and the Denver Art Museum with its expansion designed by architect Daniel Libeskind.
Lower Downtown (known as "LoDo" to locals) is on the northern edge of the downtown area and offers one of the nation's greatest concentrations of Victorian buildings and warehouses, many of which have been refurbished to house restaurants, art galleries, offices and shops. And, at an altitude of 5,280 feet, Denver's proximity to the Rocky Mountains offers an abundance of recreation options.
