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.
Take a break from the city and head to The Beach at Grand Lake and Denver Zoo. Get a sense of the local culture at 16th Street Mall and Molly Brown House Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park), Winter Park Resort (in Winter Park) and Summit Lake Park (in Idaho Springs). Next up on the itinerary: learn more about the world around you at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, contemplate the long history of Union Station, and admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens.

To see photos, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Denver online holiday planner .

In November, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 54°F, while at night they dip to 29°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
