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.
Visiting Guanella Pass and Emerald Lake Trail will get you outdoors. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cherry Creek State Park and Images of Rocky Mountain National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Grand Lake (Never Summer Mountain Products & Spas & Wellness), Summit Lake Park (in Idaho Springs) and Hotel de Paris Museum (in Georgetown). The adventure continues: make a trip to Dinosaur Ridge, get curious at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center, admire the natural beauty at Benson Park Sculpture Garden, and contemplate the long history of Union Station.

In October in Denver, expect temperatures between 67°F during the day and 40°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
