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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Water World. Attractions like Denver Zoo and Children's Museum of Denver make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to Littleton (Roxborough State Park & Littleton Museum), iFLY Indoor Skydiving - Denver (in Lone Tree) and Evergreen Lake (in Evergreen). There's much more to do: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and admire all the interesting features of Coors Field.

For reviews, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Denver route planning site .

Newark to Denver is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Newark to Denver due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Newark in May, expect Denver to be little chillier, temps between 66°F and 43°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
