Denver

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.
Family-friendly places like Denver Zoo and Carousel of Happiness will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Winter Park Resort (in Winter Park), Keystone Ski Area (in Keystone) and Estes Park (Horseback Riding Tours, Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, & more). Next up on the itinerary: see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, examine the collection at Colorado Model Railroad Museum, admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, and take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans.
