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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park), Boulder (Pearl Street Mall & Avery Brewing Company) and United States Air Force Academy (in Colorado Springs). And it doesn't end there: catch a live event at Coors Field, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, take a stroll through 16th Street Mall, and trot along with a tour on horseback.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, read Denver road trip planning app.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Denver. Expect a daytime high around 83°F in June, and nighttime lows around 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) early enough to drive to Buena Vista.

The Town of Buena Vista is a Statutory Town in Chaffee County, Colorado, United States. Kick off your visit on the 7th (Sun): witness a stunning natural landmark at Cottonwood Hot Springs Inn & Spa, mingle with the ghosts of the past at South Park City Museum, and then walk around Riverside Park. Here are some ideas for day two: stroll around Buena Vista River Park, then take some stellar pictures from Independence Pass, and then see a world frozen in time at Vicksburg.

To see ratings, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Buena Vista journey builder tool.

You can drive from Denver to Buena Vista in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Traveling from Denver in July, things will get little chillier in Buena Vista: highs are around 80°F and lows about 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 9th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive back home.
