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.
Get some historical perspective at Denver Union Station and Trinity United Methodist Church. Step out of the city life by going to River Rafting & Tubing and Photography Tours. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Golden (Golden History Museum & Golden History Museum & Park), Littleton Museum (in Littleton) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Many Parks Curve Overlook, Trail Ridge Road, & more). On the 11th (Tue), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Winter Park Resort. And it doesn't end there: get a taste of the local shopping with Denver Botanic Gardens, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, view the masterpieces at Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, and get curious at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center.
