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 Snowy Peaks Winery to your itinerary. You'll explore and learn at Hotel de Paris Museum and Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum and Dinosaur Ridge. Venture out of the city with trips to Argo Mill and Tunnel (in Idaho Springs), Avery Brewing Company (in Boulder) and Mother Cabrini Shrine (in Golden). And it doesn't end there: admire the striking features of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, see the interesting displays at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Left Hand Brewing Company, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour.
