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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Garden of the Gods and Mount Evans. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Mini Incline (in Castle Rock), Colorado Springs (Battlefield Colorado, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, &more) and Shadow Mountain Gallery (in Evergreen). The adventure continues: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, and meet the residents at Denver Zoo.

To see maps, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver trip builder website.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major aiports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Keystone.

Fewer than 400 people call Keystone home year-round, but the population explodes in summer when crowds flock to nearby Mount Rushmore.
You've now added Mount Rushmore National Memorial to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 8th (Sat): stop by Goodtyme Photo, then stroll through Presidential Trail, then stroll through Mount Rushmore National Memorial, and finally go deep underground at Big Thunder Gold Mine. Keep things going the next day: try for a hole-in-one at Holy Terror Mini Golf, examine the collection at National Presidential Wax Museum, and then find something for the whole family at Rushmore Tramway Adventures.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Keystone route planner.

You can fly from Denver to Keystone in 4 hours. Other options are to drive; or do a combination of bus and taxi. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Denver in August, with highs in Keystone at 29°C and lows at 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 10th (Mon) to allow time for travel back home.
