Vail

Western White House of President Gerald Ford

Originally built as a base for Vail Ski Resort, the town of Vail has blossomed into its own destination, but still has less than 6,000 permanent residents.
Explore Vail's surroundings by going to Glenwood Springs (Hanging Lake Trail & Thermal Spas), Buena Vista (River Rafting & Tubing & Vicksburg) and Broken Compass Brewery & Tap House (in Breckenridge). The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, stroll through Booth Falls Trail, explore the landscape on two wheels at Vail Recreation Path, and stop by Fuzzywigs Candy Shop.

Denver

Mile-High City

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.
Start off your visit on the 14th (Mon): wander the streets of 16th Street Mall, then explore the world behind art at Denver Art Museum, and then get interesting insight from Tours. On the 15th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: view the masterpieces at Denver Botanic Gardens, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Denver Zoo, and then see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, read Denver trip itinerary planning website.

Getting from Vail to Denver by car takes about 2 hours. Other options: take a bus. Traveling from Vail in June, you will find days in Denver are much warmer (83°F), and nights are a bit warmer (55°F).
