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 find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Estes Park (Off-Road Tours & Rocky Mountain Gateway Gift Shop), Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Mini Incline (in Castle Rock). Next up on the itinerary: walk around Garden of the Gods, expand your understanding of the military at United States Air Force Academy, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Denver Zoo, and explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum.

For more things to do, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, read our Denver trip planning app .

October in Denver sees daily highs of 67°F and lows of 40°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
