About Denver

Written by Ysmay.

Formerly known as a travel stop for those heading up to ski in the Rocky Mountains, Denver has become a destination over the years offering visitors arts and culture, live music, skiing, hiking, rafting, rock climbing, and much more. The capital city of Colorado, Denver was originally a mining town during the Gold Rush. Now Denver is home to over 610,000 people, and is the most populated city in a 500 mile radius.

Denver has many arts and culture events including: El Dia de Los Muertos, Buffalo Bill's Birthday, the Lowrider Magazine Show, and Cinco de Mayo.

Among Denver's unique food options (Chinese, French, Indian, Italian) is a large variety of New Mexican food, including Red and Green chile (asking for "Christmas" will get you both), tamales, and chile rellenos.

A diverse city, Denver has two Chinese newspapers: the Chinese American Post and the Colorado Chinese News.

Sister cities of Denver include: Brest, France, and Ulan Bator, Mongolia.
