Mile-High City

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.
Let the collections at Denver Botanic Gardens and Colorado Model Railroad Museum capture your imagination. Get outdoors at Trail Ridge Road and Many Parks Curve Overlook. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: 1883 Dillon Schoolhouse Museum (in Dillon), Estes Park (Images of Rocky Mountain National Park & The Studio Fine Art and Framing) and Colorado Springs (Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, National Museum of World War II Aviation, &more). The adventure continues: learn more about the world around you at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, examine the collection at Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum, and explore the galleries of Molly Brown House Museum.

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

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from your home destination to Denver. In June in Denver, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 55°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) to allow time to drive to Estes Park.

More than just a convenient resting place for travelers on their way to the national park encompassing the Front Range of the Rockies, Estes Park is a popular place to visit in its own right.
Yellow Wood Guiding has been added to your itinerary. Start off your visit on the 15th (Mon): appreciate the views at Many Parks Curve Overlook, then take a memorable drive along Trail Ridge Road, and then hit the best photo ops around with Yellow Wood Guiding. Here are some ideas for day two: shop like a local with Patterson Glassworks Studio & Gallery, then see Off-Road Tours, then view the masterpieces at The Studio Fine Art and Framing, and finally admire all the interesting features of Peak to Peak Scenic Byway.

To find more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Estes Park trip itinerary builder website.

You can drive from Denver to Estes Park in 1.5 hours. Another option is to do a combination of bus and taxi. In June in Estes Park, expect temperatures between 87°F during the day and 54°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 17th (Wed) to allow time for the car ride back home.
