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.
Get outdoors at Cherry Creek State Park and Denver Zoo. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Keystone Ski Area (in Keystone) and Winter Park Resort (in Winter Park). And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, contemplate the long history of Union Station, Denver, CO, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, and look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

For ratings, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Denver day trip planning site .

December in Denver sees daily highs of 42°F and lows of 19°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
