days
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.
Get in touch with nature at Cherry Creek State Park and River Rafting & Tubing. Family-friendly places like Denver Zoo and Keystone Ski Area will thrill your kids. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Carousel of Happiness (in Nederland), Bear Lake (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Horseback Riding Tours (in Estes Park). On the 16th (Wed), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Winter Park Resort. And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, and catch a live performance at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

For maps, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Denver trip planner .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 67°F, and evening lows to 43°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
