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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Dinosaur Ridge and Union Station. Get some cultural insight at Denver Museum of Nature & Science and Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center. Change things up with a short trip to Roxborough State Park in Littleton (about 48 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: ski along the peaceful trails at Cherry Creek State Park, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour, take a stroll through 16th Street Mall, and explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum.

To find where to stay, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Denver tour app .

May in Denver sees daily highs of 67°F and lows of 43°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
