Denver

— 3 nights

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Vail Mountain Resort (in Vail) and Main Street (in Breckenridge). Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, sample the fine beverages at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour, and steep yourself in history at Denver Union Station.

For photos, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver day trip planner.

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Denver. In February, plan for daily highs up to 45°F, and evening lows to 21°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to travel to Newark.
