Denver

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.
Denver Botanic Gardens and Denver Museum of Nature & Science will appeal to museum buffs. Visiting The EDGE Ziplines & Adventures and Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center will get you outdoors. There's lots more to do: wander the streets of 16th Street Mall, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Trinity United Methodist Church, contemplate the long history of Denver Union Station, and explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum.

The Centennial State
Home to diverse natural ecosystems, Colorado boasts numerous ski resorts, vineyards, canyons, fossil-rich national parks, rugged natural trails, and picturesque scenic drives. Arguably the greatest of Colorado's many natural wonders is Mt. Elbert, the highest peak in the North American Rockies. The state's natural beauty inspired the opening lyrics of the song "America the Beautiful." Aside from its abundant unspoiled wilderness, Colorado also offers many urban attractions, including award-winning restaurants and nationally praised microbreweries. With an extensive system of highways and railroads, the state provides visitors on vacation with a chance to explore this largely untamed part of the country by car or train.
