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.
Get outdoors at The Beach at Grand Lake and Dinosaur Ridge. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cherry Creek State Park and Arapahoe Basin. Venture out of the city with trips to Roxborough State Park (in Littleton), Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg) and Granby Ranch (in Granby). There's much more to do: engage your brain at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center, learn about winemaking at Snowy Peaks Winery, examine the collection at Colorado Railroad Museum, and take in the exciting artwork at Images of Rocky Mountain National Park.

Expect a daytime high around 55°F in March, and nighttime lows around 30°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
