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 Denver's surroundings by going to Colorado Springs (Garden of the Gods & United States Air Force Academy), Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Pearl Street Mall (in Boulder). Pack the 5th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. Next up on the itinerary: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.
