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 explore and learn at Littleton Museum and Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. Visiting The Beach at Grand Lake and St Mary's Glacier will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Spas (in Grand Lake), Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center (in Woodland Park) and Castlewood Canyon State Park (in Franktown). Next up on the itinerary: make a splash at Water World, see the interesting displays at Forney Museum of Transportation, take in the awesome beauty at Lookout Mountain, and sample the fine beverages at Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour.

For ratings, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Denver trip builder app .

Expect a daytime high around 85°F in August, and nighttime lows around 58°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
