During the 1960s and 1970s, Denver was one of the epicenters of the Chicano Movement. The boxer-turned-activist Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales formed an organization called the Crusade for Justice, which battled police brutality, fought for bilingual education, and, most notably, hosted the First National Chicano Youth Liberation Conference in March 1969.
“Cada uno de los operadores ha curado un itinerario distinto, los cuales resaltan nuestra Gastronomía (Rutrex), Cultura (Castillo Tours), Museos (Rico Sun Tours), y Aventuras (Vámonos Tours). Quienes compren estos itinerarios se estarán alojando en nuestras hospederías, disfrutando de excursiones expresamente diseñadas para estos paquetes, como también podrán disfrutar del espectáculo de Hamilton en Puerto Rico. Ante todo, esta iniciativa del equipo de Hamilton y la CTPR utiliza el musical como pie forzado para dar a conocer los encantos de Puerto Rico y promover el turismo ante una audiencia internacional”, afirmó Campos.
In the past, Denver has been home to several other airports that are no longer operational. Stapleton International Airport was closed in 1995 when it was replaced by DIA. Lowry Air Force Base was a military flight training facility that ceased flight operations in 1966, with the base finally being closed in 1994. It is being used for residential purposes. Buckley Air Force Base, a former Air National Guard base, is the only military facility in the Denver area.
State Highway 470 (C-470, SH 470) is the southwestern portion of the Denver metro area's beltway. Originally planned as Interstate 470 in the 1960s, the beltway project was attacked on environmental impact grounds and the interstate beltway was never built. The portion of "Interstate 470" built as a state highway is the present-day SH 470, which is a freeway for its entire length.
