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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Denver Union Station and 16th Street Mall. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Denver Museum of Nature & Science and Denver Botanic Gardens. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Estes Park (Aspen and Evergreen Gallery, Estes Park Visitor Center, & more), Rocky Mountain National Park (Trail Ridge Road & Many Parks Curve Overlook) and The Beach at Grand Lake (in Grand Lake). And it doesn't end there: explore and take pictures at Coors Field, sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, get engrossed in the history at Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans.
