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.

There's still lots to do: relax and float downstream with A Wanderlust Adventure, meet the residents at Denver Zoo, look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and explore the galleries of Denver Botanic Gardens.

To find photos, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Denver tour itinerary planner.
