Denver, the largest city in Colorado, was founded just before the Civil War and has grown steadily ever since. Today, Denver is a green city with many parks, including the large City Park. There are many interesting sights to visit, like the Colorado Convention Center, the Denver Performing Arts Complex, and the Denver Art Museum. The city has many places for going out -- bars, restaurants, clubs, and pubs. There are many places where you can eat delicious Mexican food; you should also try the Denver sandwich.

Denver also has many festivals, including the Lowrider show, Cinco de Mayo, Dia De Los Muertos, and El Grito de la Independencia. Visit the National Western Stock Show, which is one of the largest in the country. There are a few hostels in Denver that are not too far from the stock show.

Denver is also a great sport center; the city has professional teams in all major American sports -- the Denver Broncos are one of the most successful teams in the NFL. You should be aware when you book your hostel in Denver that football games draw also many visiting guests. That increases the prices and it could be quite hard to find a hostel in Denver on such dates.

Denver has one of the biggest airports in the country, making the city easily reachable from anywhere in the country by plane. Public transportation, however, is not so great and you may not be able to get to your Denver hostel very easily. Be sure to check for directions before booking. There are several hostels in Denver and, as they are spread in all parts of the city, you should not have problems finding a place in a convenient neighborhood.

Denver is a nice city, which combines modern architecture and typical American traditions like rodeo and sports with delicious Mexican food.
