Missoula is a city in the U.S. Go for a jaunt from Missoula to Stevensville to see Kootenai Creek Trail about 42 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at A Carousel for Missoula, tour the pleasant surroundings at Silver Park, let the kids burn off some steam at McCormick Park, and hunt for treasures at Missoula Farmer's Market.

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Rocky Mountain National Park (Trail Ridge Road & Many Parks Curve Overlook), Rocky Mountain Gateway Gift Shop (in Estes Park) and Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park & River Rafting & Tubing). The adventure continues: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, meet the residents at Denver Zoo, and explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum.
