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.
Step out of the city life by going to Mount Evans and River Rafting & Tubing. Attractions like Denver Zoo and Denver Museum of Nature & Science make great kid-friendly stops. The adventure continues: take a stroll through 16th Street Mall, explore and take pictures at Mount Evans Scenic Byway, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour, and get a taste of the local shopping with Denver Botanic Gardens.
