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.
Union Station, Denver, CO and 16th Street Mall will appeal to history buffs. Museum-lovers will get to explore Denver Art Museum and Molly Brown House Museum. There's still lots to do: engage your brain at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, take in nature's colorful creations at Denver Botanic Gardens, find something for the whole family at Elitch Gardens, and explore and take pictures at Coors Field.

To see traveler tips, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Denver trip builder.

In October in Denver, expect temperatures between 66°F during the day and 40°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
