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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Snowy Peaks Winery. Get a sense of the local culture at Mother Cabrini Shrine and Denver Union Station. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Arapahoe Basin (in Keystone), The Beach at Grand Lake (in Grand Lake) and Benson Park Sculpture Garden (in Loveland). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, take a memorable drive along Guanella Pass, get a new perspective on nature at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and see the interesting displays at Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum.

For maps, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Denver tour itinerary website.

In April in Denver, expect temperatures between 59°F during the day and 34°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
