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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Tour and Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Swetsville Zoo (in Timnath), Rocky Mountain National Park (Emerald Lake Trail, Cub Lake Trail, & more) and Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, do a tasting at Balistreri Vineyards, pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity United Methodist Church, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.

In August in Denver, expect temperatures between 85°F during the day and 58°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
