Denver was founded in 1858, and was named for James William Denver. It was a mining due to its proximity to the Rocky Mountains. Denver is known as the “Mile-High City”, because it is elevated exactly one mile (5,280 feet) above sea level. Denver is home to many sports teams including the Denver Broncos (football), Denver Nuggets (basketball), Colorado Rockies (baseball), Colorado Avalanche (hockey), and the Colorado Rapids (soccer). The Mile High City is also the host of the Great American Beer Festival every fall and is home to many breweries.
