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.
Keep things going the next day: play a few rounds at Sanctuary Golf Club, then brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour, and then wander the streets of 16th Street Mall.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Denver trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

London, UK to Denver is an approximately 12-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll gain 7 hours traveling from London to Denver due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from London in January since evenings lows in Denver dip to -7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel to Salt Lake City.
