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.
Head to Denver Botanic Gardens and Aspen and Evergreen Galleryfor some retail therapy. Escape the urban bustle at Photography Tours and Summit Lake Park. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Boulder (Pearl Street Mall & Flatirons), River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Trail Ridge Road & Many Parks Curve Overlook). On the 28th (Tue), do a day of snowy sightseeing with Breckenridge Ski Resort. There's lots more to do: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, engage your brain at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center, examine the collection at Colorado Model Railroad Museum, and see where the action happens at Coors Field.

For traveler tips, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver planning tool.

In May, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 66°F, while at night they dip to 43°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
