by R. Phillips These 15 Aerial Views Of Denver Will Leave You Mesmerized
Denver is certainly known for its breathtaking views – of its skyline, its architecture, and the surrounding mountains – but seen from above, it takes on a much greater meaning. These impressive aerial views of Denver will give you a whole new respect for our city. Life’s all about perspective, right?
1. The Mile High City from above is quite a sight to behold and is home to nearly 2.9 million people. Jeepers creepers!
2. This eerie black and white bird's eye has me channeling Edgar Allan Poe. "Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore..."
3. A captivating vintage edit of the heart of our dearly beloved downtown Denver.
4. Anyone for an awe-inspiring flight over the Rockies?
5. Downtown Denver, 1966.
Our city sure has come a long way since its inception as a mining town in 1858 during the Pike's Peak Gold Rush.
6. Downtown Denver, 2006.
Did you know there is over 23,000,000 square feet of office space downtown?
7. Mile High Stadium is the birthplace of Broncomania and has been the home of the Denver Broncos since their first season in 1960. Giddy up!
8. Spacecraft over Elitch Gardens Theme and Water Park? Do you believe?
9. Denver's Civic Center Park and the City and County Building, which is home to the courthouse, are iconic landmarks and centerpieces of the Mile High.
10. Droning above City Park with a lovely view of downtown and a glimpse of the (not so far off) mountains.
11. City Park Pavilion and Ferril Lake are historic Denver landmarks and a great place to take in views of the city and to kick back and unwind.
12. Round and round (above City Park) we go.
13. A fresh blanket of snow over Denver, as seen from The Regency Lounge on the 35th floor of the Hyatt Regency Denver downtown.
14. Red Rocks Ampitheater, 1966.
This Mile High icon was designed by Denver architect Burnham Hoyt and completed in 1941.
14. Red Rocks Ampitheater, 2014.
Did you know the earliest documented performance at Red Rocks took place on May 31, 1906? A 25-piece brass band performed at the "Grand Opening of the Garden of the Titans." That's over 100 years of Red Rocks revelry!
15. No matter where you've been, there's no better feeling than coming home.
