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.
Get some cultural insight at Colorado Model Railroad Museum and Union Station, Denver, CO. Images of Rocky Mountain National Park and Denver Museum of Nature & Science will appeal to museum buffs. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Kirk's Mountain Adventures Llc (in Estes Park), Rocky Mountain National Park (Bear Lake, Emerald Lake Trail, & more) and Guanella Pass (in Georgetown). There's lots more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, take in the dramatic natural features at Flatirons, immerse yourself in nature at Roxborough State Park, and get in on the family fun at Carousel of Happiness.
