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 in touch with nature at Arapahoe Basin and Wild Animal Sanctuary. Step off the beaten path and head to Horsetooth Mountain Open Space and Denver Central Library. Go for a jaunt from Denver to Littleton to see Roxborough State Park about 48 minutes away. There's lots more to do: ski along the peaceful trails at Cherry Creek State Park, see the interesting displays at Forney Museum of Transportation, and engage your brain at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center.

To find maps, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Denver tour itinerary planning app .
