|The City and County
of Denver is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. state
of Colorado. Denver is located in the South Platte River Valley on the
High Plains just east of the Front Range of the Southern Rocky
Mountains. The Denver downtown district is located immediately east of
the confluence of Cherry Creek with the South Platte River,
approximately 15 miles (24 kilometers) east of the foothills of the
Rocky Mountains. Denver is nicknamed The Mile-High City because its
official elevation is exactly one mile (5,280 feet or approximately
1,609 meters) above sea level.
The United States Census Bureau estimates that, in 2006, the population of the City and County of Denver was 566,974, making it the 27th most populous U.S. city.
