Welcome to Denver, Colorado!
We at Great Events/TEAMS, Inc. are very proud of our Mile High City and Centennial State and made it our job to show you the best in the most creative, attractive way. Come with us and experience the magnificent beauty and glory of Denver and Colorado!
Why ColoradoOur beautiful state contains the most extensive system of alpine wilderness in the United States with the exception of Alaska. Half of Colorado is public land open to all forms of recreation with 2 national parks, 6 national monuments, 11 national forests, 3 national recreation areas and 30 state parks. The mountainous area of Colorado is six times the size of Switzerland and contains 9,600 miles (15,449 km) of fishing streams, 2,850 lakes and over 1,000 peaks two miles (3,218 km) high. Colorado offers everything from the unhurried pace of ranch life to the bustle of urban life. Historic sites, such as the 1,000 year-old cave dwellings at Mesa Verde and the restored mining town of Georgetown, offer glimpses into Colorado's past. Contrast these with the upscale skiing communities of Aspen and Vail and the street scene along Boulders Pearl Street Mall and Denver's 16th Street Mall.
Why DenverWithin a mile radius, downtown Denver has 3 major sport stadiums, one of the nation's largest performing arts centers, 3 college campuses, an assortment of art museums, a mint producing 10 billion coins a year, a river offering white water rafting, over 5,000 hotel rooms, a $140 million amusement park, an aquarium with sharks and sea otters and well over 150 restaurants, brewpubs, discos and nightspots all with more than 300 days of sunshine a year!
Did you know that...
WeatherIn Denver dressing in layers is recommended because the weather can and will surprise you. It can be 80 degrees in November and we can have hit-and-run snow flurry in June! Each of the seasons is played out perfectly in Denver, but Denver's weather is basically mild, dry and arid with an average of 300 days of sun per year. Come to Denver prepared for everything weather-wise and do not forget about the dryness; your skin will need a lot of extra moisture!
AltitudeDenver's altitude is 5,280 ft - the Mile High City - and those not accustomed to it will certainly notice it. Water boils faster and a golf ball travels 10% farther, as do baseballs and footballs. This makes Coors Field "Home Run Alley" and Mile High Stadium the site of the longest field goal in NFL history - 63 yards.
