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.
Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Cave of the Winds Mountain Park (in Manitou Springs) and Colorado Springs (Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Garden of the Gods, &more). And it doesn't end there: get to know the resident critters at Denver Zoo, see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, and see the interesting displays at National Ballpark Museum.

To see maps, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Denver trip itinerary planner.

New York City to Denver is an approximately 7- hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or drive. Traveling from New York City to Denver, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from New York City in April since evenings lows in Denver dip to 34°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Wed) so you can go by car to Arvada.
