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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs), Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Carousel of Happiness (in Nederland). Next up on the itinerary: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Epic Brewing Company, meet the residents at Denver Zoo, and take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens.

In July, daytime highs in Denver are 87°F, while nighttime lows are 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
