Visit Denver this Summer vacation to get a closer look on a different city in the United States. Most of cities that are highly visited lie on the East or West coast and only a few cities in between get this much attention. 

Usually people want to see the icing on top of the cake and choose the flashiest or most crowded cities in America so they can say they visited all there is to see during their stay. But this couldn’t be more wrong. Big cities are usually cosmopolitan area which means they will pretty much have the same features all over the world, plus they combine different cultures. 

If you want to spend your Summer vacation in the States and actually visit the heart of America you should try a bit of everything and visit many cities that lie in between the two coasts.

For instance, you can visit Denver the capital of Colorado and one of the fastest growing city in the States right now. If you want to see skyscrapers you are in for a treat since “The Mile-High city” as it is called has plenty of them and it is also very tall, standing proud at 5.280 feet above the sea level.

The city is situated in the Great Plains right before the Rocky Mountains start. There will be plenty to do and see in Denver especially since you can also take day trips to the mountains nearby if you feel like getting away from the crowded city life.
