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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. Change things up with a short trip to The Colorado Freedom Memorial in Aurora (about 40 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: buy something for everyone on your list at 16th Street Mall, get a sense of history and politics at Colorado State Capitol, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo.

To find traveler tips, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, read Denver online tour itinerary planner .

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Denver. March in Denver sees daily highs of 55°F and lows of 29°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Sun) to allow time to drive to Grand Lake.
