More than just a gateway to the Rocky Mountains, the Mile High City is a mix of cool, urban vibes in nature’s great outdoors.

Denver’s nickname, Mile High City, comes from its 5,280-foot (1,600-meter) elevation above sea level. Its setting in the Rocky Mountains gives the city great natural beauty and 300 days of sunshine. Enjoy its outdoor excitement and great cultural activities.

Downtown Denver features numerous shopping, dining and entertainment choices.

Plan a family vacation with varied activities. See shade, water, ornamental and Western landscapes at the Denver Botanic Gardens in downtown Denver. Walk north to City Park for the Denver Zoo, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

Colorado has some of the country’s best skiing, with wide glades, powder bowls and steep mogul fields. Travel to top resorts within a 90-minute drive north or west of Denver including Echo Mountain, Eldora, Keystone, Loveland and Winter Park.
