With its roots in gold-mining and its history built by pioneers, Denver is the quintessential Western city. As a metropolis of approximately 2.6 million people, the Denver area has grown to the 21st most populous metro area in the nation. Its growth in popularity has been somewhat spurred by the incredible attractions, both natural and man-made.
