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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Denver Botanic Gardens and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Escape the urban bustle at Winter Park Resort and Hallett Peak. Venture out of the city with trips to Rocky Mountain National Park (Bear Lake, Wild Basin Area, &more), Boulder (El Loro, Pearl Street Mall, &more) and Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park, River Rafting & Tubing, &more). categoryPhrases.sentence.On_the_day_spend_an_exhilarating_day_on_the_slopes_at. categoryPhrases.sentence.On_the_day_spend_an_exhilarating_day_on_the_slopes_at. There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, examine the collection at Colorado Model Railroad Museum, take a memorable drive along Mount Evans Scenic Byway, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.

Plan my Denver trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major aiports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. In December in Denver, expect temperatures between 7°C during the day and -8°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Tue) to allow time to travel to Aspen.

Known as a ski resort town, Aspen's history goes back to its roots as a silver-mining village tucked away in an isolated valley of the Rocky Mountains.
Kick off your visit on the 23rd (Wed): look for gifts at Snowmass Sports and then test the waters at a local thermal spa. On the next day, tour the pleasant surroundings at Aspen Snowmass.

Getting from Denver to Aspen by flight takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: drive; or do a combination of bus and car. In January, Aspen is a bit cooler than Denver - with highs of 1°C and lows of -15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 25th (Fri) to allow time for travel back home.
