Denver — 2 nights

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'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Colorado Springs (Garden of the Gods & National Museum of World War II Aviation). There's much more to do: see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, explore the galleries of Molly Brown House Museum, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, and wander the streets of 16th Street Mall.
