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 find plenty of places to visit near Denver: 1883 Dillon Schoolhouse Museum (in Dillon), Vail Mountain Resort (in Vail) and Garden of the Gods (in Colorado Springs). Pack the 29th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. Next up on the itinerary: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo, admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans, and steep yourself in history at Denver Union Station.

To find photos, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Denver trip planner.

San Diego to Denver is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Traveling from San Diego to Denver, you'll lose 1 hour due to the time zone difference. When traveling from San Diego in April, plan for little chillier days and much colder nights in Denver: temperatures range from °F by day to °F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
