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 visit kid-friendly attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and Carousel of Happiness. Go for a jaunt from Denver to Rocky Mountain National Park to see Trail Ridge Road about 2 hours away. There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, meet the residents at Denver Zoo, catch a live performance at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and steep yourself in history at Union Station.

For traveler tips, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Denver route planner .
