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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Union Station and Molly Brown House Museum. Get in touch with nature at River Rafting & Tubing and Horseback Riding Tours. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Idaho Springs (Argo Mill and Tunnel & Summit Lake Park), Rocky Mountain National Park (Trail Ridge Road & Emerald Lake Trail) and Boulder (Pearl Street Mall & Flatirons). Spend the 2nd (Fri) on the water with a fishing tour. Next up on the itinerary: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, view the masterpieces at Aspen and Evergreen Gallery, admire the natural beauty at Benson Park Sculpture Garden, and wander the streets of 16th Street Mall.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, use the Denver driving holiday planner .

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airport is Denver International Airport. In July in Denver, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 18°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
