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 Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. Forney Museum of Transportation and Aspen and Evergreen Gallery will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Swetsville Zoo (in Timnath), Old Fall River Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Brownfield's (in Estes Park). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, wander the streets of 16th Street Mall, explore the world behind art at Clyfford Still Museum, and admire the landmark architecture of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

For photos, maps, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Denver day trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 67°F in October, and nighttime lows around 40°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
