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.
Get some cultural insight at Denver Botanic Gardens and Denver Art Museum. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Colorado Springs (United States Air Force Academy & Garden of the Gods), Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Estes Park (Peak to Peak Scenic Byway, Spas, & more). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of 16th Street Mall, get engrossed in the history at Golden History Museum & Park, ponder the world of politics at Colorado State Capitol, and get a taste of the local shopping with LoDo.

To find where to stay, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Denver travel route builder app .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 58°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
