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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Granby Ranch and Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center. Step out of the city life by going to Arapahoe Basin and Horsetooth Mountain Open Space. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Grand Lake (The Beach at Grand Lake & Spas & Wellness), Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg) and Roxborough State Park (in Littleton). There's still lots to do: ski along the peaceful trails at Cherry Creek State Park, contemplate the waterfront views at Sky Pond, take in the exciting artwork at Benson Park Sculpture Garden, and steep yourself in history at Dinosaur Ridge.

For other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Denver day trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from Belgium, the closest major airports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. Expect a daytime high around 17°C in April, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
