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.
Shop till you drop at Kirks Flyshop & Mountain Adventures and Aspen and Evergreen Gallery. Escape the urban bustle at Adams Falls Trail and Horsetooth Mountain Open Space. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Odell Brewing Company (in Fort Collins), Idaho Springs (St Mary's Glacier, River Rafting & Tubing, & more) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Cub Lake Trail, Emerald Lake Trail, & more). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Roxborough State Park, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Wild Animal Sanctuary, engage your brain at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Denver fast, fun, and easy.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Denver. In June in Denver, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 55°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 28th (Fri) so you can catcht the bus to Colorado Springs.
