The City and County of Denver is the capital and largest city of the state of Colorado. It is located on the plains just east of the Rocky Mountains and forms the heart of the Denver-Aurora metropolitan area. The central downtown district is on the east side of the South Platte River, near its confluence with Cherry Creek, approximately fifteen miles from the foothills.
The City and County of Denver, has a population of 557,917 and ranks as the 25th-largest in the United States and the sixth-largest state capital. The population of the Denver-Aurora metropolitan area is about 2,330,146. The city claims to have the tenth largest downtown in the United States.
Denver is nicknamed "The Mile-High City" because its official elevation, engraved on the fifteenth step of the state capitol building, is one statute mile (5,280 feet) above sea level.
Denver's economy is based partially on its geographic position and its connection to some of the major transportation systems of the country. Because Denver is the largest city within 600 miles, it has become a natural location for storage and distribution of goods and services to the Mountain States. Denver is also approximately halfway between the large cities of the Midwest like Chicago and St. Louis and the cities of the West Coast, another benefit for distribution. Over the years, the city has been home to some large corporations in the central United States, making Denver a key trade point for the country.
