Summer in Denver in Denver, Colorado, USA
The stunning skies of Colorado are the perfect backdrop to the summer outdoor exploring that the culture inspires. From mountain hikes to rooftop bars to morning lattes, the people of Denver never miss a chance to seize the day. This is one of the only places where you can go from the crowded city into the quiet wilderness within half an hour. The city is so grand and vast that one can experience things with others around but still retain an intimate relationship with their favorite places.

A perfect day would be a latte and a good book at Crema in Five Points, a stroll down South Broadway stopping for a salted butterscotch cone at Sweet Action, taking an afternoon nap next to the Platt River at Confluence Park, followed by drinking some of your neighbors’ home-brewed beers at Jazz in the Park.
Access to nature, snowfall that melts within 2 days, local beer and entrepreneurial-minded people.

How entrepreneurial everyone is. The guy who walked past you just now roasts his own coffee. That woman at the bus stop owns her own clothing line. Your neighbors are brewing their own beer and just opened a bar over in Five Points. Everyone has a passion that they pursue.
