Denver is a great place to live, work and play. Business is booming in this populous city located in just east of the Rocky Mountains in the South Platte River Valley. The lower downtown area-referred to as LoDo by locals-offers everything from lofts to luxury apartments within walking distance of countless offices, restaurants and bars. Although farther away from the heart of the city, the upscale Cherry Creek neighborhood and the hip Highlands area are also highly sought after places that offer plenty of amenities and unforgettable views.
Living in Denver is a dream come true for outdoor enthusiasts. Start a summer day with focus as you do Yoga on the Rocks, watching the sun rise over the breathtaking backdrop at Red Rocks Ampitheatre, then spend the afternoon strolling through the pedestrian-only 16th Street Mall filled with shops, restaurants and galleries. Test your gear before you buy it for any of your outdoor adventures-including a weekend at nearby Rocky Mountain National Park or a day on the slopes at Echo Mountain-at the REI Flagship store, which is housed in a unique industrial-Victorian structure with intricate masonry that once served as a power plant.
