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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Denver Botanic Gardens and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Denver Union Station and Denver Art Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & Argo Mill and Tunnel) and Littleton Museum (in Littleton). There's lots more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, admire the landmark architecture of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, stop by Dardano's Shoes, and admire all the interesting features of Dinosaur Ridge.
