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.
Popular historic sites such as Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum and Trinity United Methodist Church are in your itinerary. Get a sense of the local culture at Downtown Estes Park and Chapel on the Rock. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Boulder (Avery Brewing Company, Chautauqua Park, & more), Estes Park (Photography Tours, Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, & more) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Sprague Lake, Bear Lake, & more). On the 18th (Wed), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Winter Park Resort. The adventure continues: explore and take pictures at Mount Evans Scenic Byway, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Lookout Mountain, steep yourself in history at Molly Brown House Museum, and grab your bike and head to St. Mary's Glacier Loop.

Change things up with these side-trips from Los Angeles: Annenberg Community Beach House (in Santa Monica) and Anaheim (Disneyland Park & Disney California Adventure Park). Pack the 1st (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Studios Hollywood. And it doesn't end there: take in the waterfront at Santa Monica Pier, examine the collection at The Getty Center, get to know the fascinating history of Venice Canals Walkway, and immerse yourself in nature at Santa Monica State Beach.
