The greater metro has many incredible areas and this section of the website dives into each neighborhood to provide a treasure of information. It provides a historical background as well as great info on lifestyle, culture and fun things to do in each area. Deemed the "Mile High City" because its elevation is exactly 5280 feet above sea level, Denver is a world-class town with a lot going on.
The metro area has one of the most diverse economies in the country according to the Corporation for Enterprise Development. This may be due in part to the fact that it boasts one of the most highly educated populations of any major city in the country. This highly skilled and productive labor force is a draw to companies potentially coming to the metro area.
Located at the base of the Majestic Rocky Mountains and just 346 miles west of the geographic center of the continental United States, makes it an ideal setting for commerce. To position itself as a world class city, in early 1995 DIA (Denver International Airport) was opened making it an easier destination to get to and providing better air travel access. A testament to this is that the area has one of the highest number of SCUBA diver certifications per capita in the nation.
