Denver, also known as the ?Mile High City,? is one of the most diverse and exciting cities in the country.

Highland is known for its multicultural flair, brought about by a diverse ethnic history. Highland offers beautiful residences and eclectic commercial districts while Jefferson Park is just south of Highland. (more)
