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.
Start off your visit on the 10th (Fri): take an in-depth tour of Hotel de Paris Museum and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans. Here are some ideas for day two: see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, then get to know the resident critters at Denver Zoo, then contemplate the long history of Molly Brown House Museum, and finally take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens.
