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.
Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & Summit Lake Park), Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Colorado Springs (Cheyenne Mountain Zoo & Garden of the Gods). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, contemplate the long history of Denver Union Station, get interesting insight from Tours, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Denver Zoo.

For traveler tips, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Denver trip builder app.

Jackson to Denver is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Mountain Standard Time, which is usually a -1 hour difference. Traveling from Jackson in July, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be little chillier in Denver, with lows of °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Thu) so you can travel to Grand Canyon National Park.

The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
On the 24th (Fri), hike the day away at Bright Angel Trail. And it doesn't end there: explore the stunning scenery at Grand Canyon South Rim, take some stellar pictures from Lipan Point, tour the pleasant surroundings at South Kaibab Trail, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.
