Denver

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.
Family-friendly places like River Rafting & Tubing and Denver Zoo will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Summit Lake Park (in Idaho Springs) and Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park). There's still lots to do: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, and admire all the interesting features of Coors Field.

To see photos, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Denver trip planner .

In May in Denver, expect temperatures between 66°F during the day and 43°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
