Photos: Ten cities that send the most tourists to Denver and why they may be leaving home

The information at the heart of our post about the top twelve tourist attractions in Denver was provided by Visit Denver, which just issued a treasure trove of information about who's coming here and why.

For instance, the group offers data about the top ten home cities of visitors, but not about why they might have chosen D-town as a destination -- so we came up with some possible reasons. Look below to count down the photo-illustrated list and see our guesses about motives below.

Number 10: Minneapolis

Wikipedia: "The warmest temperature ever recorded in Minneapolis was 108 °F (42 °C) in July 1936, and the coldest temperature ever recorded was −41 °F (−41 °C), in January 1888. The snowiest winter of record was 1983-84, when 98.4 inches (250 cm) of snow fell." Number 9: Kansas City

The Kansas City Star: "Kansas City's violent crime and murder rates are among the nation's highest and have been for many years.

"That's a big black mark against keeping state control of the Police Department, as some in the business community contend is best."
