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 in touch with nature at Arapahoe Basin and Granby Ranch. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Hidden Valley Sledding and Tubing Hill and Sally Barber Mine Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Idaho Springs (Maison de Ski, Summit Lake Park, & more), Rocky Mountain National Park (Sheep Lakes, Cub Lake Trail, & more) and Loveland (Benson Park Sculpture Garden & Devil's Backbone Trail). On the 2nd (Wed), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Winter Park Resort. On the 11th (Fri), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Keystone Ski Area. There's lots more to do: stroll through Roxborough State Park, contemplate the waterfront views at Evergreen Lake, work some fitness into your day at Boulder Creek Path, and hike along Horsetooth Mountain Open Space.

To see ratings, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Denver online travel planner .

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airport is Denver International Airport. December in Denver sees daily highs of 7°C and lows of -8°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
