Denver

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 1st (Sun), pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity United Methodist Church, then admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo, and then take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports. Keep things going the next day: see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, then browse the exhibits of Denver Botanic Gardens, and then sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting.
