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.
Popular historic sites such as Dinosaur Ridge and 16th Street Mall are in your itinerary. Get a sense of the local culture at Benson Park Sculpture Garden and Trinity United Methodist Church. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Denver: Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & St Mary's Glacier), Rocky Mountain National Park (Adams Falls Trail, Alberta Falls, & more) and Horsetooth Mountain Open Space (in Fort Collins). Spend the 4th (Thu) on the water with a fishing tour. And it doesn't end there: take a memorable drive along Guanella Pass, tour the pleasant surroundings at Estes Park Visitor Center, contemplate the long history of Union Station, and explore the striking landscape at Roxborough State Park.

June in Denver sees daily highs of 83°F and lows of 55°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
