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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Denver Museum of Nature & Science and Denver Art Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Photography Tours and Trail Ridge Road. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & Summit Lake Park) and Estes Park (Spas & Wellness & Images of Rocky Mountain National Park). Spend the 20th (Sat) on the water with a fishing tour. Next up on the itinerary: get a taste of the local shopping with 16th Street Mall, explore the different monuments and memorials at Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum, explore and take pictures at Coors Field, and contemplate the long history of Union Station.

July in Denver sees daily highs of 87°F and lows of 60°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
