Denver — 2 nights

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.
On the 12th (Tue), glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, then examine the collection at Mines Museum of Earth Science, then brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Stranahan's Whiskey Distillery & Cocktail Bar, and finally relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas. Keep things going the next day: contemplate the long history of Dinosaur Ridge, then explore the world behind art at Clyfford Still Museum, then take an in-depth tour of History Colorado Center, and finally view the masterpieces at Denver Botanic Gardens.

The Centennial State
Home to diverse natural ecosystems, Colorado boasts numerous ski resorts, vineyards, canyons, fossil-rich national parks, rugged natural trails, and picturesque scenic drives. Arguably the greatest of Colorado's many natural wonders is Mt. Elbert, the highest peak in the North American Rockies. The state's natural beauty inspired the opening lyrics of the song "America the Beautiful." Aside from its abundant unspoiled wilderness, Colorado also offers many urban attractions, including award-winning restaurants and nationally praised microbreweries. With an extensive system of highways and railroads, the state provides visitors on vacation with a chance to explore this largely untamed part of the country by car or train.
