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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour and Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. Get in touch with nature at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Cherry Creek State Park. There's much more to do: do a tasting at Balistreri Vineyards, steep yourself in history at Molly Brown House Museum, take an in-depth tour of Center for Colorado Women's History at the Byers-Evans House, and pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity United Methodist Church.
