Denver

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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at 16th Street Mall and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Escape the urban bustle at Cherry Creek State Park and River Rafting & Tubing. Change things up with a short trip to Summit Lake Park in Idaho Springs (about 1h 30 min away). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans, contemplate the long history of Union Station, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo.

For ratings, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Denver vacation maker site .

August in Denver sees daily highs of 85°F and lows of 58°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
