Mile-High City

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.
Let the collections at Denver Botanic Gardens and Aspen and Evergreen Gallery capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Estes Park (The Studio Fine Art and Framing, Photography Tours, &more), Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and New Belgium Brewing Company (in Fort Collins). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, wander the streets of 16th Street Mall, and engage your brain at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Denver trip itinerary planning app.

Kansas City to Denver is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also fly; or 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 Kansas City in October, Denver is slightly colder at night with lows of 40°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Colorado Springs.
