Denver sits at one mile above sea level, with a backdrop painted by the stunning Rocky Mountains. And with an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, it’s no wonder that Denver is in love with the great outdoors. Rent a bike and pedal down the Cherry Creek Trail through some of the city’s best park spaces for great views of the Denver skyline and the Rockies beyond. To get to the heart of the action, make your way to Larimer Square to experience the best nightlife and craft beer Denver has to offer.
While Denver has a lot to brag about, nature lovers would be thrilled by a day trip to nearby Colorado Springs. Come here to take a train to the top of Pikes Peak and get an incredible view of the Rocky Mountains from 14,000 feet. Then it’s onto the Garden of the Gods, where strange rock formations naturally rise from the desert landscape in a display that’s hard to believe even when you see it for yourself.
