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.
Step out of the city life by going to Adams Falls Trail and Lily Lake. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Dillon Reservoir and Sprague Lake. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg), Rocky Mountain National Park (Trail Ridge Road, Cub Lake Trail, & more) and Idaho Springs (Argo Mill and Tunnel, The Soap Shop, & more). There's still lots to do: stroll through Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Lookout Mountain, steep yourself in history at Dinosaur Ridge, and hike along Roxborough State Park.

For maps and more tourist information, refer to the Denver day trip site .

Oshkosh to Denver is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Oshkosh to Denver. While traveling from Oshkosh, expect a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Denver, ranging from highs of 87°F to lows of 60°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
