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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Easy Street Casino (in Central City), Estes Park (Estes Park Guided Tours & Off-Road Tours) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Many Parks Curve Overlook, Trail Ridge Road, &more). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, steep yourself in history at Denver Union Station, stroll around Garden of the Gods, and take a memorable drive along Pikes Peak - America's Mountain.

Plan a trip to Denver easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Cardiff, UK to Denver is an approximately 15-hour combination of train and flight. The time zone changes from Greenwich Mean Time to Mountain Standard Time, which is usually a -7 hour difference.
