Denver, CO

With a population somewhere around 567,000, Denver is the largest city in the state of Colorado, situated along the South Platte River and Cherry Creek. Nicknamed the "Mile High City" because it is situated a mile above sea level, Denver was first established during the gold rush of the mid-19th century, similar to many other Rocky Mountain cities. Denver experienced a population decline in the 1990s, when a large proportion of residents began relocating to the suburbs, but the city has rebounded and remains the financial, commercial, and cultural hub of the Rocky Mountain region.
