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.
Escape the urban bustle at Trail Ridge Road and Mount Evans Scenic Byway. Do some cultural sightseeing at Denver Botanic Gardens and Denver Art Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide), Estes Park (Earthwood Artisans, Aspen and Evergreen Gallery, &more) and Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park & River Rafting & Tubing). Pack the 26th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, take a stroll through 16th Street Mall, steep yourself in history at Denver Union Station, and look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

For where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Denver attractions site.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major aiports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Tue) so you can travel to Mexican Hat.
