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 United States Air Force Academy (in Colorado Springs), River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs) and Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, ponder the world of politics at Colorado State Capitol, and steep yourself in history at Union Station.

To see maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Denver trip website .

In September, daytime highs in Denver are 79°F, while nighttime lows are 52°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
