Denver

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.
Visiting Nature & Wildlife Tours and St Mary's Glacier will get you outdoors. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cub Lake Trail and Sprague Lake. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Argo Mill and Tunnel (in Idaho Springs), Red Rose Rock Shop & Dick's Rock Museum (in Estes Park) and Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg). There's lots more to do: stroll through Emerald Lake Trail, don't miss a visit to Dinosaur Ridge, explore the landscape on two wheels at Cherry Creek Trail, and take in the dramatic scenery at Alberta Falls.

For ratings, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Denver tour planner.

Minneapolis to Denver is an approximately 4-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Traveling from Minneapolis to Denver, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Minneapolis in July since evenings lows in Denver dip to 60°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
