Denver

— 9 nights

Mile-High City

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.
Kids will enjoy Mount Evans and Denver Botanic Gardens. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Castle Rock (Rock Park, Gateway Mesa Open Space Park, &more), Roxborough State Park (in Littleton) and The Broomfield Bay Aquatic Park (in Broomfield). And it doesn't end there: see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, ponder the world of politics at Colorado State Capitol, examine the collection at Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, and explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum.
