We Will See You in the Mile High City

As you prepare to meet us in Denver, did you know the following?

Denver is Near the Mountain, Not in Them
There are 200 named peaks visible from Denver, including 32 that soar 13,000 feet (4,000 meters) and above. The mountain panorama visible from Denver is 140 miles (225 km) long.

Denver Really is Exactly One Mile High
There is a step on the State Capitol Building that is exactly 5,280 feet (1,609 meters) above sea level. In Denver’s rarified air, golf balls go 10% farther. So do cocktails. Alcoholic drinks pack more of a wallop than at sea level. The sun feels warmer in the thinner atmosphere, but your coffee is cooler because water boils at 202 degrees (94 degrees Celsius).

Denver Has 300 Days of Sunshine a Year
Located each of a major mountain range, Denver has a mild, dry and sunny climate with more annual hours of sun than San Diego or Miami Beach.
