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'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park & River Rafting & Tubing), Mini Incline (in Castle Rock) and United States Air Force Academy (in Colorado Springs). On the 24th (Wed), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Keystone Ski Area. Spend the 27th (Sat) on the water with a fishing tour. There's still lots to do: admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, steep yourself in history at Denver Union Station, and admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum.

For traveler tips, ratings, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Denver road trip app .

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Denver. Expect a daytime high around 59°F in April, and nighttime lows around 34°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Estes Park.
