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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Vail Mountain Resort (in Vail), Garden of the Gods (in Colorado Springs) and Broken Compass Brewery & Tap House (in Breckenridge). And it doesn't end there: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, wander the streets of 16th Street Mall, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Trinity United Methodist Church, and admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum.

To see where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Denver trip itinerary builder website.

Chicago to Denver is an approximately 5.5-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. Expect a bit warmer weather when traveling from Chicago in January: highs in Denver hover around °F, while lows dip to °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
