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 a sense of the local culture at Benson Park Sculpture Garden and Swetsville Zoo. Explore hidden gems such as The Beach at Grand Lake and Odell Brewing Company. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Frisco Historic Park and Museum (in Frisco), Arapahoe Basin (in Keystone) and Breckenridge (Breckenridge Welcome Center & Spas & Wellness). There's lots more to do: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, see the interesting displays at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, get curious at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center, and steep yourself in history at Union Station.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Denver trip planner .

In April in Denver, expect temperatures between 59°F during the day and 34°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
