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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at 16th Street Mall and Molly Brown House Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Union Station and Trinity United Methodist Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Winter Park Resort (in Winter Park) and Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park). There's much more to do: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, examine the collection at Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, and sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting.

For maps, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Denver driving holiday planner.

In December, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 43°F, while at night they dip to 19°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
