Thriving cultural diversity paired with a young, active community

The Community - Denver, CO
Welcome to Denver, where 300 days of sunshine, a thriving cultural scene, diverse neighborhoods, and natural beauty combine for the world's most spectacular playground. A young, active city at the base of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Denver's stunning architecture, award-winning dining and unparalleled views are all here, year-round. Denver, the capital of Colorado, is an American metropolis dating to the Old West era. Larimer Square, the city's oldest block, still features landmark 19th-century buildings. Museums include the Denver Art Museum, an ultramodern complex known for its indigenous works collection, and the mansion of famed Titanic survivor Molly Brown. Denver is also a jumping-off point for skiing in the nearby Rocky Mountains.

Since its Wild West beginnings, Denver has attracted all kinds of people. The rich ethnic history and diverse cultural heritage of the city are celebrated with a number of events throughout the year, from the nation's largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in the spring to the Longs Peak Scottish Irish Festival in the fall. Summer brings the Colorado Gay Rodeo and Denver PrideFest, a celebration of community and culture. The historically rich African-American Five Points neighborhood is home to the Black American West Museum, while the Museo de las Americas hosts some of the world's top contemporary artists from Latin America.
