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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate 16th Street Mall and Union Station. Step out of the city life by going to River Rafting & Tubing and Bear Lake. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Rocky Mountain National Park (Trail Ridge Road & Wild Basin Area) and Peak to Peak Scenic Byway (in Estes Park). There's more to do: admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens.

To find maps, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Denver trip itinerary website .
