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.
Dinosaur Ridge and Mother Cabrini Shrine will appeal to history buffs. Escape the urban bustle at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Roxborough State Park. There's much more to do: see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, sample the fine beverages at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour, admire the masterpieces at Clyfford Still Museum, and ski along the peaceful trails at Cherry Creek State Park.
