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.
Step out of the city life by going to Denver Zoo and Cherry Creek State Park. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at 16th Street Mall and Belmar. There's much more to do: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Downtown Aquarium.

New York City to Denver is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or drive. Traveling from New York City to Denver, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from New York City in August, plan for a bit cooler nights in Denver, with lows around 58°F. On the 2nd (Sun), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
