Mile-High City

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.
You've now added ScooTours Denver Scooter Rental to your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Colorado Springs (Cheyenne Mountain Zoo & Garden of the Gods). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity United Methodist Church, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, and explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver journey maker app.

Duluth to Denver is an approximately 17-hour car ride. You can also fly; or drive; or take a bus. Traveling from Duluth to Denver, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference.
