        Mountain parks located west of the city compose 20,000 acres of Denver’s park space. The largest city park system in the U.S. is maintained here, and Denver is a top destination for outdoor recreation. A sport’s fan will be in paradise with eight pro sports teams calling Denver home. Biking, hiking, kayaking, wild animal sanctuary exploration, wildlife refuge adventure, hot air balloon rides, botanic gardens, motorcycle rentals and tours, and whitewater rafting are a sampling of the R&R awaiting the outdoor enthusiast.

        Denver’s breathtaking location created its legendary title: The Mile High City. Nestled roughly one mile above sea level along the South Platte River, Denver is twelve miles east of the Rocky Mountains’ Front Range. The climate is dry and on a clear day snow-covered peaks circlet the city’s skyline. Wild West adventures are also abundant.
