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.
Dinosaur Ridge and 16th Street Mall are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Spas & Wellness and Hotel de Paris Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: Estes Park (Estes Park Visitor Center, Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, & more), River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs) and Kauffman House Museum (in Grand Lake). The adventure continues: take a memorable drive along Trail Ridge Road, explore and take pictures at Guanella Pass, sample the tasty concoctions at Odell Brewing Company, and make a trip to Historic Olde Town Arvada.

For photos, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, read our Denver trip planner.

In June, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
