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.
Escape the urban bustle at Mount Evans and Flatirons. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Garden of the Gods (in Colorado Springs), Estes Park (Off-Road Tours & The Studio Fine Art and Framing) and Summit Lake Park (in Idaho Springs). There's more to do: engage your brain at Denver Museum of Nature & Science and take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, read our Denver online sightseeing planner .

December in Denver sees daily highs of 43°F and lows of 19°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
