Denver

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 the less-touristy side of things at Fishing Charters & Tours and Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art. Get a sense of the local culture at Forney Museum of Transportation and Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Estes Park Visitor Center (in Estes Park), River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Lily Lake, Alberta Falls, & more). And it doesn't end there: hike along Roxborough State Park, admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, get interesting insight from Tours, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, read our Denver online driving holiday planner .

In July, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 87°F, while at night they dip to 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
