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.
Take a break from the city and head to Arapahoe Basin and Granby Ranch. Popular historic sites such as Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and Dinosaur Ridge are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Benson Park Sculpture Garden (in Loveland), Swetsville Zoo (in Timnath) and Roxborough State Park (in Littleton). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Colorado Adventure Park, cruise along Guanella Pass, identify plant and animal life at Summit Lake Park, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Emerald Lake Trail.
