Next up on the itinerary: admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, and explore and take pictures at Coors Field.

Originally built as a base for Vail Ski Resort, the town of Vail has blossomed into its own destination, but still has less than 6,000 permanent residents.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Vail: Maroon Bells (in Aspen) and Hanging Lake Trail (in Glenwood Springs). There's more to do: take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback.

To find more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Vail itinerary tool .
