Denver, Colorado

City Overview

Located on the banks of the South Platte River close to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Denver was founded in November 1858 as a gold mining town. Denver went from having a small urban core surrounded by rural farms to a booming downtown dotted with skyscrapers and surrounded by growing suburbs.

In recent years, Denver has grown into a major metropolis. While rising rent and higher home prices have been a challenge, Denver's growth has also offered unprecedented opportunities for events and entertainment. Denver Free Fun gives you the opportunity to explore the city while preserving your budget.
