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 off the beaten path and head to Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour and Washington Park. Step out of the city life by going to Trail Ridge Road and Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Golden History Museum & Park (in Golden), The Beach at Grand Lake (in Grand Lake) and Idaho Springs (Summit Lake Park & River Rafting & Tubing). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, look for all kinds of wild species at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, and stop by Tattered Cover Bookstore.

For where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Denver online day trip planner .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 87°F, and evening lows to 60°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
