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 Summit Lake Park and Denver Zoo. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and Cherry Creek State Park. Take a break from Denver with a short trip to Plains Conservation Center in Aurora, about 48 minutes away. There's more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans and ponder the world of politics at Colorado Governor's Mansion.
