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.
Let the collections at Denver Art Museum and Molly Brown House Museum capture your imagination. Popular historic sites such as 16th Street Mall and Holy Ghost Catholic Church are in your itinerary. Take a break from Denver with a short trip to Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, about 34 minutes away. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Union Station, learn the secrets of beer at a beer tour and tasting, meet the residents at Denver Zoo, and stroll the grounds of Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum.

For ratings, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Denver online visit planner .

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airport is Denver International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Denver are 7°C, while nighttime lows are -8°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
