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.
Visit Union Station and Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception for their historical value. Explore hidden gems such as Roxborough State Park and Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Golden (Mother Cabrini Shrine & Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum). The adventure continues: ski along the peaceful trails at Cherry Creek State Park, look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, and wander the streets of 16th Street Mall.
