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.
Explore hidden gems such as Guanella Pass and Argo Mill and Tunnel. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & St Mary's Glacier). The adventure continues: admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, and admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Denver road trip app .

From its main thoroughfare, Boise greets visitors with a view of downtown framed by the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to World Center For Birds of Prey and Idaho Botanical Garden. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Boise: Bruneau Dunes State Park (in Bruneau) and Caldwell (Ste. Chapelle Winery & Orma J. Smith Museum of Natural History). There's much more to do: test your team's savvy at Boise Escape, get lost in a book at Boise Public Library, steep yourself in history at Old Idaho Penitentiary, and pause for some photo ops at Idaho State Capitol Building.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Boise trip planner .
