— 2 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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Pikes Peak - America's Mountain (in Cascade) and Garden of the Gods (in Colorado Springs). And it doesn't end there: get to know the resident critters at Denver Zoo, see the interesting displays at Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, and get a taste of the local shopping with Denver Botanic Gardens.
