Why It's Worth It

Denver was founded by pioneers in search of gold, and that spirit of adventure and opportunity are still alive and well in the Mile-High City. Nestled in the foothills of the majestic Rocky Mountains, Denver has become the epitome of a modern urban wonderland. One of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S., it’s easy to understand why people are flocking to it in droves. With a diverse population, a bustling downtown, a growing food scene, and seemingly endless clusters of hip, walkable neighborhoods, what was once a hidden gem has become one of the premier destinations in the country. —Matt Cauthron
