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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The Beach at Grand Lake and Cherry Creek State Park. Dinosaur Ridge and Hotel de Paris Museum will appeal to history buffs. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Greeley (Meeker Home Museum, Linn Grove Cemetery, & more), Fort Vasquez Museum (in Platteville) and Roxborough State Park (in Littleton). On the 15th (Mon), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Arapahoe Basin. On the 21st (Sun), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Winter Park Resort. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Benson Park Sculpture Garden, examine the collection at Argo Mill and Tunnel, hike along Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

To see where to stay, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Denver online road trip planner .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Denver International Airport. In April in Denver, expect temperatures between 17°C during the day and 1°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
