Denver, Colorado Info Snack

Denver (/dnvr/), officially the City and County of Denver, is the capital and most populous municipality of the U.S. state of Colorado. Denver is in the South Platte River Valley on the western edge of the High Plains just east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The Denver downtown district is immediately east of the confluence of Cherry Creek with the South Platte River, approximately 12 mi (19 km) east of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Denver is nicknamed the Mile High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile (5280 feet or 1609.3 meters) above sea level, making it the highest major city in the United States. The 105th meridian west of Greenwich, the longitudinal reference for the Mountain Time Zone, passes directly through Denver Union Station.

I love this city. It is absolutely stunning and there is so much to do here. If I could live here, I would. My absolutely favorite part about this city is the mountains and nature all around. There are so many beautiful hiking trails.

The scenery is what stood out the most to me. Its beautiful year round with MANY great hiking trails. The great part is that the small cities outside of town are also just as wonderful to explore. The whole area is a wonderful experience. I don't find anything particularly bad about this city, beside the fact that there are marijuana stores everywhere you turn. I think this takes away from the beauty of the city.

This city had a lot of things to do. There were a lot of people outside in the town playing music and hanging out. The landscape of this city alone was absolutely breathtaking.

The people stood out because they had a much friendlier vibe than most cities. They were more willing to be open and talk to others listening to music or just being out. This town seemed more open to ideas other than their own.

Denver is a great city to live in or visit. There are a wide array of things to do within 30 minutes, you can get downtown to see a play, concert or sporting event or drive to the mountains to ski, hike or mountain bike. There are diverse neighborhoods to fit anyone and you're able to select which school your child attends.

Crimes such as thefts are going up due to the influx of new people. Make sure you keep your car locked up!

Denver is the shit. I came out here to visit in 2014. I thought it was going to be just alright, and ended up falling in love with the city. The people are friendly, the sky is blue, there are beautiful mountians, and so much good weed. I ended up leaving the NYC area and moved out here in 2016. Best decision ever!

Great food everywhere! A lot of resturants provide local and sustainable meats and produce.

The crime is like any other crime in America, it happens; car jacking, robbery, etc. I have never used the public school system in Denver.

Everywhere in Denver is a new place to experience. There is a zoo, tons of parks, nice shopping, pretty cool place.

The people are friendly and always something to do.
