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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Estes Park Ride-A-Kart & Cascade Creek Mini-Golf and Riverwalk in Downtown Estes Park. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and Argo Mill and Tunnel. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Hidee Gold Mine (in Central City), Estes Park (Estes Park Visitor Center, Tiny Town Miniature Golf, & more) and The Colorado Freedom Memorial (in Aurora). The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Wild Animal Sanctuary, make a splash at Water World, examine the collection at Colorado Model Railroad Museum, and get curious at Fort Collins Museum of Discovery.

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airport is Denver International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 18°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
