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.
Start off your visit on the 18th (Mon): take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, stroll the grounds of Fort Logan National Cemetary, and then admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens. Keep things going the next day: admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, get to know the resident critters at Denver Zoo, and then get curious at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

Plan my Denver trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Denver. November in Denver sees daily highs of 54°F and lows of 29°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Tue) early enough to catcht the bus to Colorado Springs.

Stunning Garden of the Gods Park scenery, blue skies and the glory of Pikes Peak-America’s Mountain have attracted visitors to Colorado Springs for more than a century.
Start off your visit on the 20th (Wed): find something for the whole family at North Pole - Santa's Workshop, take in the pleasant sights at Pike's Peak - America's Mountain, and then get to know the fascinating history of Old Colorado City. Here are some ideas for day two: get to know the resident critters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, then walk around Garden of the Gods, and then gain insight at United States Air Force Academy.

Plan my trip to Colorado Springs with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
