Denver City GuideDenver is the capital and most populous municipality of the U.S. state of Colorado. The Denver downtown district is immediately east of the confluence of Cherry Creek with the South Platte River, approximately 12 mi (19 km) east of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. 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. With an estimated population of 693,060 in 2016, Denver is the 19th-most populous U.S. city, and one of the fastest-growing major cities in the United States. As of 2010, 72.28% of Denver residents aged five and older spoke only English at home, while 21.42% spoke Spanish, 0.85% Vietnamese, 0.57% African languages, 0.53% Russian, 0.50% Chinese, 0.47% French, and 0.46% German. In total, 27.72% of Denver’s population aged five and older spoke a language other than English. Because Denver is the largest city within 500 miles (800 km), it has become a natural location for storage and distribution of goods and services to the Mountain States, Southwest states, as well as all western states. In 2016, Denver was named the best place to live in the United States by U.S. News & World Report.
