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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Estes Park Museum and Aspen and Evergreen Gallery. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Byers-Evans House and Red Rose Rock Shop & Dick's Rock Museum. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center (in Woodland Park), Castlewood Canyon State Park (in Franktown) and Littleton Museum (in Littleton). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum, contemplate the long history of Dinosaur Ridge, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, and get curious at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center.

For reviews, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Denver day trip site .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 87°F, and evening lows to 60°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
