Denver

— 7 nights

Mile-High City

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Arapahoe Basin. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and Roxborough State Park. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Colorado Model Railroad Museum (in Greeley), Benson Park Sculpture Garden (in Loveland) and Granby Ranch (in Granby). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Denver Union Station, take a stroll through 16th Street Mall, admire the majestic nature at Cherry Creek State Park, and kick back and relax at The Beach at Grand Lake.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver planning site.

In January, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 44°F, while at night they dip to 21°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
