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.
Step out of the city life by going to Mount Evans and Fishing Charters & Tours. Do some cultural sightseeing at Denver Union Station and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Littleton Museum (in Littleton), Castle Rock (Gateway Mesa Open Space Park & Hidden Mesa Open Space & Trail) and Golden (Golden History Museum & Park & Jeffco Open Space Parks). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, contemplate the long history of Molly Brown House Museum, don't miss a visit to Dinosaur Ridge, and sample the fine beverages at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour.

For where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Denver road trip planner.

Washington DC to Denver is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive. Traveling from Washington DC to Denver, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Expect little chillier evenings in Denver when traveling from Washington DC in August, with lows around 58°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
