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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Carousel of Happiness (in Nederland), Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park & River Rafting & Tubing) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Trail Ridge Road, Bear Lake, & more). Pack the 6th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. There's lots more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, walk around Garden of the Gods, and get to know the resident critters at Denver Zoo.

For more things to do, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Denver sightseeing planner.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 87°F, and evening lows to 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
