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.
On the 20th (Fri), contemplate the long history of Dinosaur Ridge, then brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Stranahan's Whiskey Distillery & Cocktail Bar, and then immerse yourself in nature at Cherry Creek State Park. Here are some ideas for day two: see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, then buy something for everyone on your list at 16th Street Mall, and then browse the exhibits of Butterfly Pavilion.

Planning Denver trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

United States travel guide

Specialty Museums · Historic Sites · Nightlife
More than the country of car-packed streets seen in TV shows and movies, the United States of America is a complex and diverse home to over 300 million people living in a wide range of landscapes and climates. From its big-city skyscrapers to its sprawling natural parks, the country's ''melting pot'' combines many ethnic groups that share a strong sense of national identity despite their cultural differences. A country of road trips and big blue skies, the United States harbors orderly cities filled with restaurants, parks, museums, and innumerable sightseeing opportunities, as well as pristine natural areas perfect for a holiday in the great outdoors. To see as much as you can of this diverse land quickly, drive over some of the more than 6 million km (4 million mi) of highways leading through deserts, mountain peaks, fertile fields, and giant urban centers.
