7. Denver, Colorado
Looking for breathtaking views while hiking or simply enjoying a glass of red wine? Denver, the capital of Colorado is your answer to all your prayers. Sitting at an altitude of 5,280 feet, Denver is the perfect choice for those who love mountains. We actually suggest you to spend a day driving along the Mount Evans Scenic Byway—you will be fascinated.
While you’re here, remember that one of the most well-known attractions in Denver are the breweries. Tours of the Coors Brewery are free, but you’ll have to drive to Golden, Colorado, which is approximately 20 to 30 minutes outside of Denver. After a cold beer (or two), you should visit one of the many free or inexpensive museums and tours such as United States Mint Tour, Denver Story Trek, Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave, and the Colorado State Capitol.
