Denver

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Mount Evans and Bear Lake. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs), United States Air Force Academy (in Colorado Springs) and Estes Park (Horseback Riding Tours & Peak to Peak Scenic Byway). On the 8th (Sun), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Winter Park Resort. The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo, get a taste of the local shopping with Pearl Street Mall, admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, and look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

To see more things to do, ratings, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Denver itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
