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.
Get outdoors at Winter Park Resort and Photography Tours. 16th Street Mall and Molly Brown House Museum will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park), Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & Summit Lake Park) and Estes Park (Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, Aspen and Evergreen Gallery, & more). There's lots more to do: look and learn at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, steep yourself in history at Union Station, explore and take pictures at Coors Field, and get curious at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center.

For photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Denver trip itinerary planning website .

May in Denver sees daily highs of 66°F and lows of 43°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
