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 explore and learn at Denver Botanic Gardens and Denver Art Museum. When in Denver, make a side trip to see Spas in Estes Park, approximately Estes Park away. And it doesn't end there: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, wander the streets of 16th Street Mall, contemplate the long history of Molly Brown House Museum, and get engrossed in the history at Golden History Museum & Park.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, use the Denver trip itinerary planning tool.
