了解丹佛的地理

丹佛 處在洛基山脈以東的大平原,達拉斯 東北660英裡,芝加哥 西900英裡,三番市東960英裡。

Denver lies on the flat plains abutting the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains, 660 miles (1060km) northwest of Dallas, 900 miles (1450km) west of Chicago and 960 miles (1550km) east of San Francisco. The city's streets and avenues follow a compass-oriented grid pattern outside the diagonal swath of downtown. The State Capitol is on the southeastern edge of downtown. West of the capitol are the Civic Center and the Denver Art Museum. Lower Downtown ('LoDo' to the locals), home to many of Denver's most historic buildings, sits between Larimer Square and Union Station at the northwestern corner of the downtown grid.

The non-navigable South Platte River flows just north of downtown and is lined by trails and roads that snake into the mountains to the southwest. Colfax Ave (Hwy 40), one of the longest streets in the USA, bisects the city on its 40 mile (65km) journey from Strasburg to Golden.

Denver International Airport (DIA) is located 24 miles (40km) northeast of downtown. The downtown Denver Bus Terminal is immediately north of the capitol; trains converge on neoclassical Union Station at the northwestern edge of the downtown grid.
