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 hidden gems such as River Rafting & Tubing and Photography Tours. Get some historical perspective at Dinosaur Ridge and 16th Street Mall. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Roxborough State Park (in Littleton), Emerald Lake Trail (in Rocky Mountain National Park) and Estes Park (Zipline & Dancing Pines Distillery). There's lots more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Wild Animal Sanctuary, take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, contemplate the long history of Union Station, Denver, CO, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Denver Zoo.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Denver itinerary builder.

In September in Denver, expect temperatures between 79°F during the day and 53°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
