Denver is geographically isolated from ANYTHING. (Other Front Range towns and ski towns don't count).
Go east of Denver and you are in the exceedingly harsh and desolate High Plains.

Isn't Denver the biggest city/metro area for almost 500 miles in any direction? The closest major cities to Denver I could think of are Salt Lake, Kansas City and Dallas.

And the Platte River isn't navigable in that area, so I'd say Denver FTW.

I can't believe that Indianapolis isn't on this list. I thought everyone knew that Indianapolis is the largest city without a navigable body of water accessible to it.

I'd say Atlanta. The Chattahoochee is not navigable and they run out of water a lot. Hardly any waterways in that area of GA.

Denver wins this easily....even though Salt Lake City is the second furthest away from an ocean, it has Great Salt Lake, and Denver has no bodies of water anywhere near it.
