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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Hotel de Paris Museum (in Georgetown), Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Colorado Springs (Cheyenne Mountain Zoo & Garden of the Gods). There's much more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Evans, take a memorable drive along Mount Evans Scenic Byway, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, and take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens.

To see photos, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, read our Denver day trip site.

Washington DC to Denver is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Washington DC to Denver. Traveling from Washington DC in July, plan for little chillier nights in Denver, with lows around °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
