Mile-High City

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.
Attractions like Garden of the Gods and Cave of the Winds Mountain Park make great kid-friendly stops. When in Denver, make a side trip to see Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, approximately Colorado Springs away. There's still lots to do: take in the exciting artwork at Denver Botanic Gardens, examine the collection at Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, get a taste of the local shopping with 16th Street Mall, and see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

The Garden State
Often overshadowed by its legendary neighbor, New York, New Jersey holds its own as a land of thriving industrial cities, sprawling farmland, and lively coastal towns. Called the Garden State, New Jersey is a hub of entertainment and cultural attractions for the east coast, from the famous sandy beaches and carnival-like atmosphere of the Jersey Shore to alluring Atlantic City, the Las Vegas of the east. New Jersey also boasts a wealth of historical places to visit, including battle sites and memorials, such as George Washington's Revolutionary War headquarters.
