Denver is located in the South Platte River Valley on the western edge of the High Plains just east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.  The biggest surprise for visitors to Denver is the climate. The arid conditions bring only 8 to 15 inches of annual precipitation and locals wake up to more than 300 days of sunshine a year.  Winters are mild with an average daily high temperature of 45 degrees Fahrenheit and days reaching 60 degrees are not uncommon. Snow doesn’t stay on the ground long in Denver so golf courses and outdoor cafes are able to stay open all year.

Denver's arts and cultural world is thriving, with award-winning theater, world-class music, stimulating museums, and spectacular visual arts.

Whether you have a few hours or a few days to visit the Mile High City, here are some suggested itineraries and trips for visitors:  Denver Area
