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.
You've added Colorado Adventure Center, Denver Art Museum, The Spa at The Brown Palace, and other attractions to your itinerary. There's still lots to do: see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science and sample the fine beverages at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour.

To find other places to visit, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Denver road trip planner .

Austin to Denver is an approximately 4.5-hour combination of flight and train. You can also do a combination of car, flight, and train; or drive.

When traveling from Austin in November, plan for slightly colder days in Denver, with highs around 54°F, while nights are cooler with lows around 29°F.
