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.
Get some cultural insight at Denver Museum of Nature & Science and 16th Street Mall. Visiting Trail Ridge Road and Peak to Peak Scenic Byway will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs) and Estes Park (Spas & Wellness, Aspen and Evergreen Gallery, & more). There's lots more to do: take in the exciting artwork at Denver Botanic Gardens, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Coors Brewery, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, and steep yourself in history at Union Station.

To find other places to visit, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Denver attractions planner.

In June, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
