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 Arapahoe Basin and Benson Park Sculpture Garden. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Estes Park (Images of Rocky Mountain National Park & Estes Park Visitor Center), Granby Ranch (in Granby) and Hidden Valley Sledding and Tubing Hill (in Rocky Mountain National Park). The adventure continues: hike along Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, make a trip to Main Street, and take in nature's colorful creations at Annual Flower Trial Garden.

For traveler tips, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Denver trip itinerary builder site .

In December, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 43°F, while at night they dip to 19°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
