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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Flatirons (in Boulder) and Winter Park Resort (in Winter Park). The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo, contemplate the long history of Union Station, Denver, CO, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans, and admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens.

To see maps, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Denver trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 42°F in December, and nighttime lows around 19°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
