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.
Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park & River Rafting & Tubing), Grand Z Casino Hotel (in Central City) and Colorado Springs (Garden of the Gods, Battlefield Colorado, &more). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, steep yourself in history at Denver Union Station, sample the tasty concoctions at New Belgium Brewing Company, and learn more about the world around you at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

To see traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Denver day trip planning website.

Duluth to Denver is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Mountain Standard Time, which is usually a -1 hour difference. Traveling from Duluth in May, you will find days in Denver are somewhat warmer (66°F), and nights are about the same (43°F). Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
