Sports fanatics moving to Denver will be ecstatic too. Denver's seven professional sports teams entertain year-round, with basketball, baseball, football, soccer, lacrosse, hockey, rugby – Denver’s got it all. Their Major League Baseball team, The Colorado Rockies, play home games in the heart of downtown Denver at Coors Field. The Sports Authority Field at Mile High is where the NFL's Denver Broncos call home. The NBA's Denver Nuggets rule the court at the Pepsi Center in downtown. Major League Soccer's Colorado Rapids have a new home - the sprawling, high-tech Dick's Sporting Goods Park. The Colorado Mammoths, part of the growing National Lacrosse League and plays home games at the Pepsi Center. And even more major leagues lacrosse can be found at Sports Authority Field, where the Denver Outlaws play.
Perhaps the biggest surprise for visitors and newcomers to Denver is the climate. The arid conditions bring only 8 to 15 inches of annual precipitation and locals wake up to more than 300 days of sunshine a year. That’s more annual hours of sun than Miami and San Diego.
In summer, Denver enjoys low relative humidity, making for beautiful, sun-filled days and cool, comfortable evenings. The mild weather is due in part to the city's altitude: 5,280 feet above sea level, or exactly a mile high – hence their famous nickname!
