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.
Kids will enjoy Garden of the Gods and Denver Botanic Gardens. Venture out of the city with trips to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo (in Colorado Springs) and Estes Park (Brownfield's & Off-Road Tours). Next up on the itinerary: get to know the resident critters at Denver Zoo, take in the views from Denver Millennium Bridge, and look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.
