Easy to get to, easy to get around, with scenery that’s easy on the eyes. That’s Denver.

A bustling downtown highlighted by a vibrant media scene, a dynamic arts culture and a progressive attitude, Denver will inspire you to add another chapter to your journalism story April 16-19, 2015, at the JEA/NSPA Spring National High School Journalism Convention.

Denver is a lively city that sits 5,280 feet — one mile — above sea level. Located at the base of the Rocky Mountains, it’s blessed with 300 days of sunshine a year, perfect for exploring the nation’s largest city park system and incredible 650 miles of paved bike trails.

Downtown — the 10th largest in the U.S. — is centered around a milelong pedestrian promenade and includes sports stadiums, hundreds of restaurants, a collection of museums, galleries, shopping, the second largest performing arts center in the nation, three college campuses and an amusement park.

The city offers much diversity in people, scenic terrain, neighborhoods and historic attractions. Along with our top-notch journalism convention, your visit promises to be educational, enjoyable and memorable.
