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.
Kick off your visit on the 31st (Sat): admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, and then explore the galleries of Denver Botanic Gardens.

For photos, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Denver trip planner .

Fort Smith to Denver is an approximately 11-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Fort Smith to Denver due to the time zone difference.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Sat) early enough to travel to Van Buren.
