Denver

— 8 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.
Escape the urban bustle at Mount Evans and Mount Evans Scenic Byway. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like A Wanderlust Adventure and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Summit Lake Park (in Idaho Springs), Hotel de Paris Museum (in Georgetown) and Fort Collins (Spring Canyon Community Park & Veteran's Plaza of Northern Colorado). And it doesn't end there: explore and take pictures at Trail Ridge Road, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, meet the residents at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and appreciate the extensive heritage of 16th Street Mall.
