丹佛 处在洛基山脉以东的大平原，达拉斯 东北660英里，芝加哥 西900英里，三番市东960英里。
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.
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.
