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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Guanella Pass and South Park City Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Emerald Lake Trail (in Rocky Mountain National Park), National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum (in Leadville) and Chapel on the Rock (in Allenspark). Next up on the itinerary: take in the exciting artwork at Aspen and Evergreen Gallery, get curious at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and see the interesting displays at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum.

In October in Denver, expect temperatures between 67°F during the day and 40°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
