Map of the city location and inset

Denver is a sprawling city in the valley before the Rockies are tackled if heading west, or the relief of getting through them if heading east. Denver has many suburbs, and the MSMA is probably 40+ miles in circumferance.

Mountains are the Attraction

People come to the city to enjoy mostly the mountains around it and further west. There is a reasonable amount of culture in the city center and suburbs, though.

Color in the mountains

Beautiful landscapes all around the area bring a person to a different feeling of what it is like out there in the west. There is beauty, and all around

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Wonderful views of the surrounding area
  • Cons:Too crowded in city area and weather changes a lot
  • In a nutshell:The city continues to try and make it look attractive

    We might visit the Rockies next year. Wow, it is really such a windy area?

    My one visit to Denver was half a century ago, so I don't remember much about it.

    on the homeless.. ...there are portable toilets right in the area, yet they urinate and defacate in plain view...surely its time some action was taken here...tourists with children don't really want their kids to see such stuff
