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.
Visit 16th Street Mall and Dinosaur Ridge for their historical value. Visiting Mount Evans and Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Castle Rock (Gateway Mesa Open Space Park, Hidden Mesa Open Space & Trail, & more) and Jeffco Open Space Parks (in Golden). Spend the 16th (Tue) on the water with a fishing tour. Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Union Station, explore the galleries of Denver Botanic Gardens, admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, and identify plant and animal life at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.
