Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
Take a break from the city and head to Mount Evans and Hallett Peak. Union Station and Molly Brown House Museum will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park & River Rafting & Tubing), Boulder (Humane Society of Boulder Valley, Flatirons, & more) and United States Air Force Academy (in Colorado Springs). Next up on the itinerary: catch a live performance at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, explore the landscape on two wheels at Cherry Creek State Park, stroll through Denver Zoo, and take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback.
