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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Colorado Springs (Red Rock Canyon Open Space, Garden of the Gods, &more). And it doesn't end there: get to know the resident critters at Denver Zoo, see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, see the interesting displays at Molly Brown House Museum, and take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens.

For ratings, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, read Denver trip site.
