Denver (/'[email protected]/), is a consolidated county and city, the capital and largest city in the U.S. state Colorado. [1] The 2020 United States Census showed that the city's population was 715.522, a 19.22% rise from the 2010 census.

Denver is found in the Southwestern United States. It is situated in the South Platte River Valley, on the western edge the High Plains, just east of Rocky Mountain Front Range. Its central district lies approximately 12 miles (19 km) east from the confluence between Cherry Creek and South Platte River. It was named after James W. Denver (a governor of Kansas Territory). Because it is located exactly one mile above sea level, the Mile High City is known as such. It stands at 5280 feet (1609.344 meters) or just over 1 mile. [15] Denver Union Station is the location of the 105th Meridian west of Greenwich. It is the longitudinal reference for Mountain Time Zone.
