There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, take an in-depth tour of Photo Antiquities Museum of Photographic History, examine the collection at Bicycle Heaven, and take a stroll through Mount Washington.

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 Colorado Springs (Cheyenne Mountain Zoo & Garden of the Gods), Rocky Mountain National Park (Many Parks Curve Overlook, Trail Ridge Road, &more) and Estes Park (Art Center of Estes Park Gallery, Brownfield's, &more). There's still lots to do: take in the exciting artwork at Denver Botanic Gardens, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Denver Zoo, get the adrenaline pumping with Oxotic Supercar Driving Experience, and appreciate the history behind The Colorado Freedom Memorial.

To see photos, maps, and tourist information, use the Denver road trip website.
