Denver

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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Coors Field and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Humane Society of Boulder Valley (in Boulder), Horseback Riding Tours (in Estes Park) and Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & Summit Lake Park). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans, experience the excitement of Carousel of Happiness, take in the views from Denver Millennium Bridge, and look for gifts at Belmar.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Denver travel route planner.
