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.
Explore hidden gems such as Arapahoe Basin and Wild Animal Sanctuary. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Horsetooth Mountain Open Space (in Fort Collins), Estes Park (Kirk's Mountain Adventures Llc & Tiny Town Miniature Golf) and Benson Park Sculpture Garden (in Loveland). There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Lookout Mountain, contemplate the waterfront views at Lily Lake, cruise along Guanella Pass, and take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens.
