When flying into Denver, people first notice the stunning Rocky Mountains and Denver International Airport’s distinctive roof, which resembles snow-capped peaks. Located at the foot of the mountains, Denver is the perfect launching point for groups seeking a day trip to one of the country’s most-visited national parks, historic mountain mining towns and Pikes Peak Country, with iconic attractions like the Royal Gorge and mineral springs...for sipping not soaking!
