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.
Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Colorado Springs (Garden of the Gods & Penrose Heritage Museum), North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop (in Cascade) and Estes Park (Aspen and Evergreen Gallery, Estes Park Guided Tours, &more). Next up on the itinerary: push the limits with Oxotic Supercar Driving Experience and get outside with Apex Ex.

For traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Denver tour itinerary builder site.

Traveling by flight from Philadelphia to Denver takes 6.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or do a combination of train and bus. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST) is minus 2 hours. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Philadelphia in September since evenings lows in Denver dip to 52°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
