Is Denver a Safe City?

Denver is quite safe for a city its size, but like most major cities always practice precaution.

You should treat walking in Denver like you do any other large city — no displays of opulence, be aware of your surroundings, don’t wear anything that obscures your hearing or vision, and don’t go into areas that are isolated alone.

Stick to the well-lit areas and travel in groups if you can.

Altitude Sickness

At its mean altitude level, Colorado is 6,800 feet above sea level. This is equivalent to about 2,072 meters. Coming from lower altitude environments to higher altitude, may cause a common occurrence of altitude sickness. Altitude sickness varies from person to person. Symptoms can include: headache (most common), sometimes accompanied by fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, and occasionally vomiting. To counteract altitude sickness we recommend:

  1. stop and rest where you are when symptoms arise.
  2. if you have a headache, take ibuprofen.
  3. make sure you’re drinking enough water.
  4. do not smoke, drink alcohol, or exercise.
