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.
Union Station, Denver, CO and 16th Street Mall will appeal to history buffs. Take a break from the city and head to Mount Evans and Horseback Riding Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Bear Lake (in Rocky Mountain National Park), River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs) and United States Air Force Academy (in Colorado Springs). The adventure continues: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, explore and take pictures at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo, and explore the different monuments and memorials at The Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave.

For more things to do, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Denver day trip website .

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, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
