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 find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Winter Park Resort (in Winter Park), United States Air Force Academy (in Colorado Springs) and Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park). On the 31st (Mon), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Keystone Ski Area. There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, contemplate the long history of Union Station, and get a taste of the local shopping with Pearl Street Mall.

Plan trip to Denver with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

Expect a daytime high around 43°F in December, and nighttime lows around 19°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
