Denver's tourism numbers rise because of Colorado Springs
Denver attracted a record 10.4 million visitors in 2005 due in large part to Colorado Springs and Pueblo. The Pikes Peak region sent the second highest number of visitors to Denver according to a tourism survey commissioned by the Denver Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau. Los Angeles sent the largest amount of overnight visitors to Denver in 2005, according to the Longwoods International survey.
