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've added Comedy Wagon, AVA Rafting & Zipline, Breckenridge Distillery, and other attractions to your itinerary. Change things up with a short trip to Cave of the Winds Mountain Park in Manitou Springs (about 1h 30 min away).

To see maps, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Denver day trip planner.

New Orleans to Denver is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time to Mountain Standard Time is minus 1 hour. Traveling from New Orleans in May, plan for cooler nights in Denver, with lows around 43°F. On the 25th (Mon), you'll travel back home.
