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 out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: United States Air Force Academy (in Colorado Springs), Boulder (Pearl Street Mall & Avery Brewing Company) and Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park). The adventure continues: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, see a show at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, explore and take pictures at Coors Field, and learn the secrets of beer at a beer tour and tasting.

For maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Denver trip itinerary planner.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Denver. In June in Denver, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 55°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Buena Vista.
