Denver

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Photography Tours and The Beach at Grand Lake. Get some historical perspective at Denver Union Station and Molly Brown House Museum. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Estes Park (Aspen and Evergreen Gallery, Spas, & more) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through 16th Street Mall, explore and take pictures at Coors Field, see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

Discover how to plan a Denver trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Getting from Colorado Springs to Denver by bus takes about an hour. Other options: drive; or fly. In July, plan for daily highs up to 87°F, and evening lows to 60°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
