Denver is a young city by eastern standards. It achieved statehood the same year Alexander Graham Bell patented the telephone and the first pennant race in the baseball’s National League.
It may be young, but is it exciting. It is full of energy and life. In the past 20 years, it has built Denver International Airport, a new baseball stadium, Coors Field, a new central library, added a stunning addition to its art museum, re-developed lower downtown which is the oldest section of Denver (LoDo) into a thriving community and it has a new light rail system. Denver Colorado real estate in LoDo is fun as many of the homes are in old warehouses.
World leaders convene in Denver for conferences like the Summit of the Eight in 1997. Pope John Paul II came here in 1993 for the World Youth Conference and Denver was the host for the 2008 Democratic Convention.
However, Denver is still a “cow town”, especially in January when ranchers and cattlemen converge on Denver for the National Western Stock Show. They compete in rodeos, buy and sell stock and exhibit their products. Men in 3-piece suits walk side by side with those in cowboy boots and hats.
Denver’s foresight in the late 1800s and early 1900s created a fantastic system of parks and recreational areas. Not only did they set aside land for the city residents, but also mountain property for residents use in summer and winter.
