Denver — 8 nights

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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Denver Botanic Gardens and Denver Zoo. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Colorado Springs (National Museum of World War II Aviation & Cheyenne Mountain Zoo), Winter Park Resort (in Winter Park) and Estes Park (Spas & Estes Park Guided Tours). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, admire all the interesting features of Mount Evans Scenic Byway, wander the streets of 16th Street Mall, and contemplate the long history of Denver Union Station.

To find maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Denver tour itinerary builder website.

Santa Fe to Denver is an approximately 5.5-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time to Mountain Standard Time is minus 1 hour. In December, Denver is cooler than Santa Fe - with highs of 43°F and lows of 19°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
