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've added Denver Free Walking Tours, Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, Hammond's Candy Factory, and other attractions to your itinerary. Kids will enjoy Denver Museum of Nature & Science and Denver Zoo. Venture out of the city with trips to Carousel of Happiness (in Nederland) and Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park). And it doesn't end there: explore and take pictures at Coors Field, admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Coors Brewery.
