Denver

— 4 nights

Mile-High City

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 pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity United Methodist Church.
