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 River Rafting & Tubing and Mount Evans. There's much more to do: meet the residents at Denver Zoo, explore and take pictures at Coors Field, indulge your taste buds at The Source, and take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens.
