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.
Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Argo Mill and Tunnel are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour and Sprague Lake. Venture out of the city with trips to Hotel de Paris Museum (in Georgetown), The Beach at Grand Lake (in Grand Lake) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, catch some excitement at Carousel of Happiness, and contemplate the long history of Byers-Evans House.

For where to stay, photos, maps, and tourist information, read our Denver trip planner .

In August, daytime highs in Denver are 85°F, while nighttime lows are 58°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
