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.
On the 28th (Thu), shop like a local with Denver Botanic Gardens, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Denver Zoo, then get a new perspective on nature at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity United Methodist Church. Here are some ideas for day two: buy something for everyone on your list at 16th Street Mall, contemplate the long history of Molly Brown House Museum, and then admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum.

To find ratings, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Denver planning website.
