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.
Denver is known for parks, museums, and zoos & aquariums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: catch a live event at Coors Field, engage your brain at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, make a trip to 16th Street Mall, and explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum.

For photos, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Denver trip planner.

Charlotte to Denver is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST) is minus 2 hours. Traveling from Charlotte in May, expect Denver to be slightly colder, temps between 66°F and 43°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) to allow time to drive to Boulder.
