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.
Step out of Denver to go to Colorado Springs and see Garden of the Gods, which is approximately 1h 30 min away. There's still lots to do: see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, steep yourself in history at Denver Union Station, take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, and meet the residents at Denver Zoo.

For other places to visit, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Denver online day trip planner .

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Denver. In March, daytime highs in Denver are 55°F, while nighttime lows are 29°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) early enough to go by car to Loveland.
