Denver is known as the Mile High City and that is because it is literally a mile high! There is a step on the State Capitol building that is exactly 5,280 feet (1,609 meters) above sea level. It also has 300 days of sunshine a year with more annual hours of sun than San Diego or Miami Beach. Denver is the gateway to pre- and post-meeting adventure in the Colorado Rocky Mountains: you can hike or fly fish in Rocky Mountain National Park, play poker, blackjack and roulette in Old West mining towns, go river rafting down spectacular Clear Creek Canyon - with a walk-able downtown, exciting entertainment, diverse cultural attractions and culinary offerings that Denver offers, you're sure to find what you're looking for in the Mile High City.
Other options are the Denver Museum of Nature & Science , Pike's Peak , the Denver Zoo , Wings over the Rockies Air & Space Museum and the Wildlife Sanctuary!
