Boasting an elevation of 5,280 feet, one mile above sea level, Denver is the Mile High City! It's the gateway to the Rocky Mountains, where you can navigate the city by locating the hazy blue peaks off to the west. A 20 minute drive will get you to the foothills, beautiful in themselves, and in an hour you can be among the majestic, snow-capped granite peaks of the continent’s largest mountain range. The Denver area has experienced a boost in population through the past 10 years, with many young residents settling in to enjoy good nightlife, including lots of local breweries, music from indie rock to country, and an increasingly cutting-edge food scene. Denver’s culture could be described as “city mountain west,” combining the best of urban excitement, the great outdoors, and western independence. It’s no wonder it rates as the second-best place to live in the United States, according to U.S. News & World Report (2019). Rounding out the list of lifestyle perks, Denver ranked third in Rover’s list of dog-friendly cities in 2019 and is known for being an exceptionally pet friendly place. Where else would you want to live?
