Denver 4K – Mile High City – Driving Downtown



Early morning drive in around Downtown Denver before heading into the Colorado Rockies.
Starting Point:
Denver, the capital of Colorado, is an American metropolis dating to the Old West era. Larimer Square, the city’s oldest block, features landmark 19th-century buildings. Museums include the Denver Art Museum, an ultramodern complex known for its collection of indigenous works, and the mansion of famed Titanic survivor Molly Brown. Denver is also a jumping-off point for ski resorts in the nearby Rocky Mountains.

Denver is the capital and most-populous city of the U.S. state of Colorado. Denver is located in the South Platte River Valley on the western edge of the High Plains just east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. With an estimated population of 727,211 in 2019, Denver is the 19th-most populous city in the United States, the fifth-most populous state capital, and the most populous city located in the Mountain states. It is nicknamed the Mile High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile (5280 feet or 1609.3 meters) above sea level. The 105th meridian west of Greenwich, the longitudinal reference for the Mountain Time Zone, passes directly through Denver Union Station.

Denver is ranked as a Beta world city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network. The 10-county Denver-Aurora-Lakewood, CO Metropolitan Statistical Area had an estimated 2018 population of 2,932,415 and was the 19th most populous U.S. metropolitan statistical area. The 12-city Denver-Aurora, CO Combined Statistical Area had an estimated 2018 population of 3,572,798 and was the 15th most populous U.S. metropolitan area. Denver is the most populous city within a 500-mile (800 km) radius and the second-most populous city in the Mountain West after Phoenix, Arizona. In 2016, Denver was named the best place to live in the United States by U.S. News & World Report.

  1. Traffic is not as bad as in Phoenix, Dallas, Chicago, LA, Bay Area, Seattle, and Vegas. Worse than everything else in between. Have a serious homeless problem that has become far worse since Hancock became mayor and Polis became governor. In many respects, the city is overbuilt. Far too many apartments built since pot was legalized.

  2. Denver is very pretty city! One day, I’ll see it! This video makes me feel like I am in Denver right now. Denver is more beautiful than NYC. Points:
    Denver 10/10
    NYC. 1/10

  3. Impressive a lot bigger downtown than I thought,by it's looks it should be top5 US city, looks as big as LA 's downtown.

  4. Denver can never compare to L.A. L.A. is better overall
    1. Better food
    2. Better weather
    3 more clubs and bars
    4. More modern architecture and buildings
    5. More diverse
    6. Can literally buy anything you want.
    7. More ethnic foods
    8. More friendly

  5. My stomping grounds! I walk/bike all over this city so it's all so familiar, haha. Thanks for actually giving the pedestrian/dog the right of way. It depresses me how many don't and how many times I would have bit it if I wasn't paying attention. Fuck those who can't wait the few seconds to allow someone to safely cross or just aren't paying attention.

  6. I love watching ur videos, its awesome. Sometimes i feel i dont need to go out as everything i can watch on ur videos👍. One thingbI want to ask, whta fps do u shoot all these and what picture profile?

  7. I’m moving to California for school and I’m going to be watching this video when I get homesick

  8. So many Poor drivers in Denver anymore. Lets start enforcing a psychological test before getting and renewing a driver's license. Don't forget that driving a car is a privilege, not a right!

  9. Nice city but, no people in the streets? It's a little bit weird, when making comparisons to other american big cities, like Chicago, L.A. or, of course, N.Y.C.

  10. Interesting, Kept driving in the same areas. Had he deviated, you would see nothing but tents, trash needles and more.

  11. Being a NYC native for almost 30 years, watching this is a tad bit refreshing. This is slower pace and smaller scale. Denver seems like a pretty relaxing place to live. Here it's a way more quicker pace. But I'm used to it at this point. There's also way more people here. Denver looks like a ghost town in this video. Although it is covid and it depends on which time of day.

  12. Did you know that in the early going (around the :47 mark), you passed by the studios of KCNC Channel 4, the CBS O&O of that area (CBS4)?

  13. Just found out my daughter has had a severe head injury, so bad that staples and stitches were used, and now she is unable to be seen at all, DHS took our kid away for parking in a van in a Lowe's parking lot, now she is permanently disfigured while in custody of DHS! Return our child before it's too late! Before they steal all of my child's soul! She just a 2 year old baby! GOD HELP our family reunite This is the way! ,.

  14. I spent more than a decade driving cab in Denver in the 70s and 80s. I moved away in 1986 and have returned many times but this was a LOT of fun riding around downtown. Thanks for the morning ride.
