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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and Downtown Aquarium. Venture out of the city with trips to Boulder (Flatirons & Pearl Street Mall). There's lots more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo, explore and take pictures at Coors Field, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, and admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens.

Make your Denver itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Atlanta to Denver is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Atlanta to Denver. Traveling from Atlanta in June, expect little chillier with lows of 55°F in Denver. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) so you can drive to Estes Park.
