Denver is the capital of Colorado and the largest metro area in a 600 mile radius. It is nicknamed the Mile-High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile above sea level, making it the highest major city in the United States. The city has the largest municipal park system in the U.S., with enough acres of park to cover Manhattan. It also boasts 300 days of sunshine a year which make it sunnier than San Diego or Miami Beach. Denver has a solid reputation as a sports town where virtually every professional team plays to sell-out crowds. The city is also a popular access point for ski resorts in the nearby Rocky Mountains.
