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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Bear Lake, Trail Ridge Road, River Rafting & Tubing, and other attractions you added. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour and Roxborough State Park. Take a break from the city and head to Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge and Lookout Mountain. Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, look for gifts at Chocolate Lab, and do a tasting at Balistreri Vineyards.
