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.
Explore hidden gems such as Arapahoe Basin and Horsetooth Mountain Open Space. Do some cultural sightseeing at Benson Park Sculpture Garden and Swetsville Zoo. Venture out of the city with trips to Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg), Roxborough State Park (in Littleton) and Emerald Lake Trail (in Rocky Mountain National Park). There's much more to do: get curious at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center, examine the collection at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, make a trip to Dinosaur Ridge, and admire all the interesting features of University of Colorado at Boulder.

To find where to stay, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver trip itinerary planning site .

In May, daytime highs in Denver are 66°F, while nighttime lows are 43°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
