Denver

— 9 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.
Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park & River Rafting & Tubing), Rocky Mountain National Park (Many Parks Curve Overlook & Trail Ridge Road) and Estes Park (Horseback Riding Tours, Off-Road Tours, &more). There's still lots to do: get curious at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, walk around Garden of the Gods, and admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum.

For reviews, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Denver trip planner.
