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.
On the 29th (Thu), relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour and then admire the majestic nature at Cherry Creek State Park. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 30th (Fri): catch a live event at Coors Field, browse the different shops at 16th Street Mall, and then see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

Find out how to plan Denver trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

Stunning Garden of the Gods Park scenery, blue skies and the glory of Pikes Peak-America’s Mountain have attracted visitors to Colorado Springs for more than a century.
Take a break from the city and head to River Rafting & Tubing and Helen Hunt Falls. Explore Colorado Springs' surroundings by going to The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey (in Canon City) and Cripple Creek (Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine & Century Casino Cripple Creek). Pack the 6th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. There's much more to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, make a trip to Olympic Training Center, find something for the whole family at North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop, and explore the world behind art at Michael Garman Museum & Gallery.
