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 visit kid-friendly attractions like Denver Museum of Nature & Science and Downtown Aquarium. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Colorado Springs (Garden of the Gods, United States Air Force Academy, & more), Rocky Mountain National Park (Many Parks Curve Overlook, Trail Ridge Road, & more) and Estes Park (Peak to Peak Scenic Byway, Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, & more). Pack the 27th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. On the 28th (Sat), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Keystone Ski Area. There's lots more to do: get to know the resident critters at Denver Zoo, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with 16th Street Mall, and fly down the slopes at Winter Park Resort.

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major airports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. December in Denver sees daily highs of 7°C and lows of -8°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
