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.
Step out of the city life by going to St Mary's Glacier and Dinosaur Ridge. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Roxborough State Park and Boulder Creek Path. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Argo Gold Mill and Tunnel (in Idaho Springs), Estes Park (Estes Park Visitor Center & Kirks Flyshop & Mountain Adventures) and Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg). There's more to do: engage your brain at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center.
