Super Bowl Face Off

The 2014 Super Bowl is this weekend and while I’m sure you already know which team you’re rooting for,  do you really know how the two cities compare off the field? Check out some interesting facts about Seattle and Denver as you prepare for the Seahawks and Broncos to face off this Sunday, February 2nd, for Super Bowl XLVIII.


Seattle is a city surrounded by water. Catherine Sherman states that “Elliott Bay sits to the west and several lakes in and around the city provide residents an urban lifestyle as well as easy access to boating, hiking and skiing.” The environment of Seattle makes it a great place for various entertainment. The VisitSeattle website lists the following categories as options for fun:

  • Arts and culture
  • Entertainment and Nightlife
  • Festivals
  • Food, Wine, Beer
  • Family Fun
  • Outdoor Recreation
  • Sightseeing and Tours
  • Shopping
  • Spectator Sports

“From high art to sky-high mountain peaks, there’s something for every visitor to Seattle to experience.”

Also stated in an article by Catherine Sherman, “Denver is known for its elevation a mile above sea level with close proximity to hiking trails and top ski resorts.” Hence, the nickname “Mile High City.” Denver is a city for adventurers! The Denver Colorado Tourist & Vacation Information site talks about the different day trips you can take, must-see attractions, and scenic sightseeing that you can experience. Also, people refer to Denver as a “pro sports paradise” because the city is home to about seven professional sports teams that entertain sold out crowds all year long! Check out some options for how to have fun in Denver:
