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 Union Station and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Popular historic sites such as 16th Street Mall and Molly Brown House Museum are in your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Denver: Estes Park (Horseback Riding Tours, Photography Tours, & more), River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs) and Golden History Museum & Park (in Golden). On the 5th (Mon), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Winter Park Resort. Next up on the itinerary: admire the natural beauty at Denver Botanic Gardens, get a taste of the local shopping with Pearl Street Mall, admire all the interesting features of Trail Ridge Road, and explore the galleries of Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum.

For maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Denver trip planner .

In July, daytime highs in Denver are 87°F, while nighttime lows are 60°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
