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 some cultural insight at Denver Museum of Nature & Science and 16th Street Mall. Appreciate the collections at Denver Art Museum and Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Winter Park Resort (in Winter Park), River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Many Parks Curve Overlook & Trail Ridge Road). There's much more to do: view the masterpieces at Denver Botanic Gardens, pause for some serene contemplation at Holy Ghost Catholic Church, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo, and steep yourself in history at Union Station.

For reviews, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Denver online road trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 66°F in May, and nighttime lows around 43°F. You'll have a few hours on the 14th (Tue) to wrap things up before traveling home.
