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.
Escape the urban bustle at Adams Falls Trail and Lily Lake. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Alberta Falls and Cherry Creek State Park. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Estes Park (Estes Park Visitor Center & Snowy Peaks Winery), Rocky Mountain National Park (Cub Lake Trail & Emerald Lake Trail) and Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg). There's lots more to do: relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, contemplate the long history of Dinosaur Ridge, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, and explore the galleries of Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center.

In July, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 87°F, while at night they dip to 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
