Denver, nicknamed the Mile High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile (5280 feet or 1609.3 meters) above sea level, is characterized by its unique combination of quaint neighborhoods and bustling businesses.
Denver is a city full of history. In the summer of 1858, a small group of prospectors from Georgia crossed the great plains of the Colorado Territory and made a region-changing discovery at the base of the Rocky Mountains. Gold. And although not much of the precious metal was found, the mere whisper of the word was enough to start a veritable stampede into the region.Larimer Square, the city’s oldest block, features landmark 19th-century buildings.
Museums include the Denver Art Museum, an ultramodern complex known for its collection of indigenous works, and the mansion of famed Titanic survivor Molly Brown.
After a day of visiting the multicultural center, skiing in the nearby Rocky Mountains, enjoying a picnic in the park, attending a lively festival or sampling some mouthwatering local cuisine, there’s no better way to relax than with a soak in one of our spas or baths.
