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. One of the country's fastest growing urban centers, this city sustains a sprawling metropolitan area of nearly 3 million people. In fact, it ranked number four as one of the best places for business and careers in the nation by Forbes.com. Proudly embracing its colorful history of cowboys and miners, Denver also looks brightly toward the future by supporting a lively performing arts scene and dozens of popular outdoor festivals. Located just 19 km (12 mi) east of the majestic Rockies, Denver also offers those on vacation a chance to explore distinct neighborhoods filled with cultural attractions. Use our United States trip itinerary builder to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Denver.

Where to stay

For a touch of class near all Denver's major attractions, book a room at one of the city's historical hotels, built during the late-19th century silver rush. Denver's oldest hotels feature opulent oak furnishings, silver chandeliers, and frescoed walls, as well as spacious rooms packed with high-tech gadgets. If you're planning your visit on a limited budget, consider the affordable hostels and bed and breakfasts located outside the central part of town. Alternatively, you can also stay at one of the mid-range hotels near the airport.
