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.
Get outdoors at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Emerald Lake Trail. Head to Purple Mountain Taffy Company and Benson Park Sculpture Gardenfor some retail therapy. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Mount Sanitas Trail (in Boulder), Devil's Backbone Open Space (in Loveland) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Cub Lake Trail & Ouzel Falls). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, see the sights as you ascend with a climbing tour, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and grab your bike and head to Cherry Creek Trail.

To find other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Denver road trip app .

Expect a daytime high around 79°F in September, and nighttime lows around 52°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
