Mile-High City

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Lookout Mountain and Cherry Creek State Park. Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Forney Museum of Transportation are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Boulder (National Center for Atmospheric Research - NCAR, Mesa Trail, &more), Cussler Museum (in Arvada) and Mother Cabrini Shrine (in Golden). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Dinosaur Ridge, get engrossed in the history at Littleton Museum, examine the collection at Argo Mill and Tunnel, and admire the masterpieces at Swetsville Zoo.

For traveler tips, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Denver online journey planner.

In August, daytime highs in Denver are 85°F, while nighttime lows are 58°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
