Famous for the Denver Broncos, mountains, and outdoor activities, Denver is the largest city in Colorado. The Mile High City sits 5280 feet above sea level, and the area was not populated until the mid 1880s.

Denver is a little over 900 miles away from San Antonio, Texas, and almost 2,000 miles away from Boston. Colorado Springs is a mere one-hour drive away and driving to Boulder takes about 35-40 minutes in good traffic conditions.
