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.
Take a break from the city and head to Alberta Falls and Emerald Lake Trail. Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Argo Mill and Tunnel will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Kirks Flyshop & Mountain Adventures (in Estes Park), Rocky Mountain National Park (Many Parks Curve Overlook & Trail Ridge Road) and Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park & River Rafting & Tubing). The adventure continues: ski along the peaceful trails at Cherry Creek State Park, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, and stroll through Wild Animal Sanctuary.

August in Denver sees daily highs of 85°F and lows of 58°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
