Denver

— 3 nights

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Mount Falcon Castle Trail and Bear Creek Lake Park. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to National Ballpark Museum and Mother Cabrini Shrine. Step out of Denver with an excursion to Sulphur Gulch Trail in Parker--about 38 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Great Divide Brewing Co., stroll the grounds of Fort Logan National Cemetery, and take an in-depth tour of Morrison Natural History Museum.
