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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Denver Union Station as well as Denver Adventures. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Guanella Pass and Washington Park. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Rock Park (in Castle Rock) and Capital Prize Gold Mine Tour (in Georgetown). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Dinosaur Ridge, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, get thoroughly spooked out with Best Tours of Denver, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Denver holiday planner.
