The front range is home to Colorado’s largest metropolitan area, Denver. Denver is a young city boasting a thriving downtown, unique neighborhoods, a flourishing arts scene and an ethnically diverse population. The downtown is full of restaurants, clubs, boutiques, galleries and packed sidewalks. Historic buildings and preservation abounds with a commitment to open space seen in its superior park system. Boulder, home of the University of Colorado, captures the essence of the front range. Framed by foothills, the city enjoys 33,000 acres of parks and trails and there is plenty to do and see including the lively Pearl Street Mall and the summer-long Colorado Music Festival. Additional dining and entertainment can be found in Fort Collins, the site of Colorado State University, Greeley, home of the University of Northern Colorado, and Colorado Springs, home town of the US Air Force Academy.

The average winter temperature is a high of 46 and a low of 18. The average summer temperature is a high of 82 and a low of 50.

LARGEST CITY: Denver. Population of about 2.1 million in the metro area; 500,000 live within Denver city limits.

FUN FACT: Wynkoop, Blake, Larimer, Lawrence, Curtis and Welton streets are named after members of the town company that founded Denver.
