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.
Relax by the water at Byers-Evans House and Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. Step out of the city life by going to The Beach at Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Spas (in Grand Lake), Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & St Mary's Glacier) and Colorado Springs (Brunswick Zone XL, Falcon Stadium, & more). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Dinosaur Ridge, ski along the peaceful trails at Cherry Creek State Park, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Denver Zoo, and see the interesting displays at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum.

For where to stay, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Denver online vacation planner .

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in June, and nighttime lows around 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
