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 Denver's surroundings by going to Rocky Mountain National Park (Trail Ridge Road & Bear Lake), United States Air Force Academy (in Colorado Springs) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs). There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, take a stroll through 16th Street Mall, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and contemplate the long history of Union Station.

To find ratings, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Denver online trip builder .

In September, daytime highs in Denver are 79°F, while nighttime lows are 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
