NACA® Live - All About Denver
Sculpture Garden Festival

​Next year will be a big year for the National Association for Campus Activities. Not only are we celebrating our 60th anniversary but we are launching NACA® Live, a reimagined national convention experience, in a location we've never been to before. Here are some things you should know, thanks to Visit Denver:

  1. Denver really is exactly one mile high. There is a step on the State Capitol Building that is exactly 5,280 feet above sea level.
  2. Denver has one of the most walkable downtowns in the nation. Within a mile radius, downtown Denver has three major sports stadiums, the nation's second-largest performing arts center, three colleges with 30,000 students, an assortment of art and history museums, a mint that produces 10 bill coins a year, a river offering white water rafting and a $100 million aquarium.
  3. Denver's history is short but colorful. In 1858, there was not a single person living in the Denver metro area. Thirty years later, Colorado was a state with a population of almost 200,000, thanks to the Gold Rush.
  4. Denver has one of the most unique city park systems in the nation. There are 200 parks within the city – one of which includes a herd of buffalo – and 20,000 acres of parks in the nearby mountains.
  5. Denver has 300 days of sunshine a year. The city has a mild, dry and sunny climate with more annual hours of sun than San Diego or Miami Beach. And in the winter, Denver is dryer than Phoenix with an average daily high of 45 degrees in February.

The NACA® Live Team is making sure there is time in the schedule for you to explore this amazing city. Take a look at the tentative planned events and times when you can opt to sightsee!
