Denver

— 18 nights

Mile-High City

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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Fort Collins (Annual Flower Trial Garden & New Belgium Brewing Company), Colorado Springs (The Broadmoor Seven Falls, Garden of the Gods, &more) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Trail Ridge Road & Bear Lake). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, and identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas.

For reviews, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Denver road trip planning tool.

London, UK to Denver is an approximately 12-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from London to Denver is minus 7 hours.
