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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Denver Zoo and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park), Carousel of Happiness (in Nederland) and United States Air Force Academy (in Colorado Springs). The adventure continues: admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, and contemplate the long history of Denver Union Station.
