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.

Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, sample the fine beverages at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour, wander the streets of 16th Street Mall, and meet the residents at Denver Zoo.
