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 a sense of the local culture at Dinosaur Ridge and Images of Rocky Mountain National Park. Museum-lovers will appreciate Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Argo Gold Mill and Tunnel. Venture out of the city with trips to Rocky Mountain National Park (Lily Lake & Emerald Lake Trail), Kirks Flyshop & Mountain Adventures (in Estes Park) and Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg). Next up on the itinerary: glide through natural beauty at Cherry Creek State Park and stop by Tattered Cover Bookstore.

For more things to do, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Denver road trip site .

In July, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 87°F, while at night they dip to 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
