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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Colorado Springs (Garden of the Gods & United States Air Force Academy), Estes Park (Off-Road Tours, Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, & more) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Many Parks Curve Overlook & Trail Ridge Road). Pack the 25th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. Next up on the itinerary: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, admire the masterpieces at Denver Art Museum, look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Denver Zoo.

For other places to visit, photos, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Denver online tour planner .

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major airports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. Expect a daytime high around 22°C in October, and nighttime lows around 5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
