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 Lookout Mountain and Forney Museum of Transportation. Museum-lovers will get to explore Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Cussler Museum (in Arvada), Boulder (National Center for Atmospheric Research - NCAR, Mesa Trail, &more) and Mother Cabrini Shrine (in Golden). Next up on the itinerary: discover the riches below the earth's surface at Argo Mill and Tunnel, explore the activities along Aurora Reservoir, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and view the masterpieces at American Museum of Western Art.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Denver vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Expect a daytime high around 85°F in August, and nighttime lows around 58°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
