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 Denver Union Station and 16th Street Mall are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs), Rocky Mountain National Park (Trail Ridge Road & Bear Lake) and Pearl Street Mall (in Boulder). And it doesn't end there: see where the action happens at Coors Field, take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, contemplate the long history of Molly Brown House Museum, and expand your understanding of the military at United States Air Force Academy.

For photos, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Denver trip itinerary maker app.
