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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Estes Park (Horseback Riding Tours, Rocky Mountain Gateway Gift Shop, & more), Cave of the Winds Mountain Park (in Manitou Springs) and Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park). There's much more to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, steep yourself in history at Denver Union Station, take a memorable tour with Tours, and expand your understanding of the military at United States Air Force Academy.

Indianapolis to Denver is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST), which is usually a -2 hour difference. Traveling from Indianapolis in June, plan for a bit cooler nights in Denver, with lows around 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
