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.
Step out of Denver with an excursion to River Rafting & Tubing in Idaho Springs--about 38 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: admire all the interesting features of Coors Field, explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Trinity United Methodist Church.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Denver trip itinerary maker app .

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Denver. August in Denver sees daily highs of 85°F and lows of 58°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) early enough to travel to Aspen.

Known as a ski resort town, Aspen's history goes back to its roots as a silver-mining village tucked away in an isolated valley of the Rocky Mountains.
Kick off your visit on the 31st (Sat): take in the awesome beauty at Maroon Bells. Here are some ideas for day two: trek along Hanging Lake Trail and then get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Aspen road trip planning app .

Traveling by flight from Denver to Aspen takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or do a combination of bus and car. In August, Aspen is little chillier than Denver - with highs of 77°F and lows of 46°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 2nd (Mon) to allow time for travel back home.
