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.

And it doesn't end there: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, meet the residents at Denver Zoo, admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, and look for all kinds of wild species at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.
