The Mile High City is a great year-round destination, combining urban excitement and western heritage with outdoor adventures, from day trips to hike, white water raft and mountain bike, to the best of American skiing.white water rafting.JPG

A young, active city at the base of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Denver's stunning architecture, award-winning dinning and unparalleled views are all within a short driving (or biking) distance from our Anschutz Medical Campus.
