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.
Kick off your visit on the 21st (Fri): take in nature's colorful creations at Benson Park Sculpture Garden and then steep yourself in history at Denver Union Station. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, then contemplate the long history of Molly Brown House Museum, and then see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

Start your trip to Denver by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Get some historical perspective at Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Lake Lawn Metairie. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Jamie Hayes Gallery and Boutique du Vampyre. Change things up with these side-trips from New Orleans: Louisiana's Old State Capitol (in Baton Rouge), Biloxi Beach (in Biloxi) and Saint Francisville (Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site & Grace Church of West Feliciana Parish). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Whitney Plantation, contemplate the long history of Evergreen Plantation, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Immaculate Conception Church, and admire the masterpieces at The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA.
