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 list of things to see and do now includes Escapology, Mount Evans, Ameristar Casino Resort Spa, and other attractions. Shop till you drop at American Museum of Western Art and Dardano's Shoes. Discover out-of-the-way places like Balistreri Vineyards and Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Black Hawk (Golden Mardi Gras Casino & Isle Casino), Boulder Creek Path (in Boulder) and Summit Lake Park (in Idaho Springs). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

To find photos, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Denver trip planner.
