When WestJet flies to this destination:
Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Denver, known for its laid-back lifestyle and unparalleled beauty, is a city with mass appeal. Mix a little cowboy heritage with cosmopolitan chic and you too will find yourself humming John Denver's classic Rocky Mountain High as you take in all that this Western city has to offer.
Aptly named the Mile-High City, Denver's official elevation is exactly one mile above sea level. This altitude won't be the only thing that takes your breath away – Denver has the largest city park system in the U.S. with 205 parks in the city limits and 20,000 acres of mountain parkland nearby.
Want to mix business with pleasure? Denver's 17th street has been called the Wall Street of the Rockies with its numerous financial institutions, and Forbes magazine has named the city one of the best places for business. With its central location, Denver is a distribution hub for the American west and also supports growing industries in technology and communications. The mineral-rich Rocky Mountains nearby have also encouraged mining and energy companies to call Denver home.
All work and no play makes for a dull visit and by no means is Denver dull. Denver is one of only 12 U.S. cities with four major sports teams and has the most microbreweries per capita in the U.S.
Is the putting green more your thing? With a moderate climate, some of Denver's golf courses are open year-round and the elevation of the city will actually make golf balls fly farther.
If the arts are more your scene, Denver is home to the tenth largest downtown in the U.S., a dynamic mix of mile-long pedestrian walkways lined with outdoor cafes, upscale restaurants, shops and cultural sights. The Denver Performing Arts Complex is the second largest performing arts centre in the world after New York City's Lincoln Center and is home to Broadway touring productions, dance and ballet, a symphony orchestra, opera and more.
No visit to Denver is complete without taking in a concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The only naturally occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheatre in the world, Red Rocks has played host to The Beatles, U2, opera stars and everyone in between. Red Rocks also offers a variety of recreation – from guided tours, hiking and biking to shopping and dining.
Denver: With an omelet named after it and dinosaurs in its backyard, you know it must be amazing.
