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.
Get some historical perspective at Union Station and 16th Street Mall. There's much more to do: admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity United Methodist Church, ponder the world of politics at Colorado State Capitol, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Denver Zoo.
