Change things up with a short trip to Fallingwater in Mill Run (about 1h 15 min away). 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.

For more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Pittsburgh travel route planner.

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 Rocky Mountain National Park (Many Parks Curve Overlook, Trail Ridge Road, &more), Estes Park (Art Center of Estes Park Gallery, Brownfield's, &more) and Colorado Springs (Cheyenne Mountain Zoo & Garden of the Gods). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations 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.
