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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park), River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs) and United States Air Force Academy (in Colorado Springs). There's much more to do: admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Denver Zoo, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, and see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

To find where to stay, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Denver online travel route planner .

San Francisco to Denver is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST), which is usually a 1 hour difference. When traveling from San Francisco in July, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Denver: temperatures range from 87°F by day to 60°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Vacaville.
